Received Airworthiness Certificate & Repairman's certificate on 11/14/18. Ready to start flying with the Viking 110 engine. 7 years in the making but a lot of fun doing the build work. Painted with polyurethane marine paint using a 4 in. roller. Purchased vinyl graphic decals off the internet. Very pleased with the final product.

What sort of prep did you do on your paint? How well did the roll on work, stick and look? Would you do it the same way again? Do you have any construction blog or other photos we could see?
