Default Thud

I "stuck" my beloved Jumping Jack into the ground this evening. Nothing major,lg and motor mount. The rear spar on the left wing has a little damage, I can fix that too.
I lost orentiation,, the thing is all red, sun had already set,,,all my fault.
Has any one recovered the top(or bottom) surfaces? Any quick and easy ideas?What did you use?

Get some trimcote, and just add some stripes to the bottom. That's what I did to my Katana Mini, and it looks factory done and helps tremendously.

I had a few trimcote stripes on the bottom, that is a great idea. But in low light the stripes would show from the top or bottom.(Translucent red.) I think I'll recover the top surfaces with So-lite in a contrasting color.

The Katana Mini is translucent red too, and you can't see the stripes at all from the top, regardless of the lighting, but can always see them on the bottom.

The Jumping Jack is translucent top and bottom,,,I have a Katana mini also, it is a totally different perspective. Upon further inspection,,,I hurt it pretty bad. I have another one new in the box.I will get it ready and take my time reparing "Thud".
