Default First Canopy and Scale body Painting

Hi, I am about to paint a new fiberglass canopy and wanted to get some advice on prepping, primer, and paint selection. I also have a plastic kyosho bell 222 fuse that I would like to paint after I fly it with the just the stickers. I finally invested in a paint gun and airbrush system so no more spray cans. Also after reading a few post I realized you could cut masking for designs with a plotter/cutter. Now I regret selling my Lynx 12 a few months back because I thought I would never use it again.

Check out my tips page www.canopyfx.com/tips.html This a a procedure to paint plastic canopies but all you need to do is leave off the adhesion promoter for fiberglass canopies. If you have any other questions please shoot me an email
