I keep hearing things about the fantastic finishes possible on autos but have been unable to get any response from the local shops about doing an aircraft.  I explain that the project would be mostly the slab sides ans smooth curves of the flying surfaces, all new, bare aluminum with a few areas of fiberglass.  Then I throw in what might be the burr under the saddle, the rivet heads ... no response.

Anybody out there done it?  I still think it would look great on my 701 ... in a year or so.
