Default Covering

No, I think it it needs some work before applying paint, depending on the degree of “slickness” you desire

Rich finishes with Koverite/dope, then paint, which works really well for him: I’ve been flying a glow-powered AstroHogg he built for 25 YEARS

But this 47 is only about half covered and doped, so you would have to finish that or (my plan if I have to keep it) peel the Koverite off and redo it with fiberglass, a medium I’m more comfortable with
