Horizontal Stabilizers, the leading Edge Cuffs made for a nice looking airfoil shape. Chris Wallen of Wllen Aircraft LLC is doing an Excellent job.

I think the Plum Crazy Purple & Oratex Silver go well together on my SuperSTOL. Chris of Wallen Aircraft LLC is moving along nicely with the Paint.

What was the prep to the oratex to put paint on top of it?

Wipe with a wax and grease remover then a tack rag. Then paint

Chris of Wallen Aircraft LLC updated me. He posted some cool pictures of the wings in the sunlight. He also posted a picture of the fuselage taped with the paint Scheme.

The accent color first coat on my SuperSTOL. Chris Wallen of Wallen LLC said he needs lightly sand the color coat and apply one more coat. I think the Plum Crazy Purple is going to stand out.

Second coat of paint. Chris Wallen of Wallen Aircraft LLC, said he has it masked and ready to paint the black accent stripe. I need to name her, I’m starting to like Purple Haze. I can legally get high in my Purple Haze. Tomorrow I should be able to post photos with the Fuselage paint complete.

I just received a Text from Chris Wallen concerning my SuperSTOL, he's finished the Fuselage. I asked him what he thought of the Paint Scheme & Colors. He responded, "Lol. I like the colors a lot. Going to look badass all put together and in the sun!" What do you think? I personally am please I decided the spend the money to have him help with the build of my plane. My paint would have never looked that good! I'm good with a wrench, and doing fiberglass work, but when it comes to paint, I can't stand doing it!! The Color is Plum Crazy Purple, it was used on 1971 Cuda with a 440 Six Pack. A young lady I knew in high school had one, and I really liked the color. She wasn't hard on the eyes either.

I’m guessing Chris Wallen, Wallen Aircraft LLC is one busy man. Here is a photo with the landing gear mounted, he lowered the nitrogen pressure, so it would be a little lower to work on.

He installed the Horizontal Stabilizers as well. The last time I saw them installed they hadn’t been covered, and it was hard to visualize if the airfoil shape on the Vertical Stabilizer would interfere with the Horizontal Stabilizers. Now to get the paint Scheme for the Horizontal Stabilizer and the Elevators, either all Purple, or with the same paint scheme as the wings, any recommendations?
All purple will add weight, the same paint scheme as the Wings will minimize the weight gain.

Hey Paul, looks like an airplane! Yes, I'd replicate the wing paint on the horizontal stab. or at least a close variation of it. Looks great!

That is what I was thinking. I asked Chris to tape off the scheme so I could visualize it. All in all, I am really pleased I’m using Chris Wallen, of Wallen Aircraft LLC for the Builders Assist. The only issue with using Wallen Aircraft LLC is the 1200 or so mile drive to go Assist. Thank goodness I’m now doing stock investing to make a living.
I got to do my flying tail, Carbon Fiber instrument panel, Carbon Fiber floor boards, & Oratex, and he’s doing the paint. I would have had to subcontract the paint out, because Garland is very strict on painting, and my paint job would have looked like the painter was drunk and using rattle can paint to do the paint. It is one thing I have absolutely zero skill at, and I hate painting with a firm passion.
