The Paint Is Coming Off The 182

The 182 project is still moving ahead in several directions at once. In the mix of things, the paint removal process started on the tail cone. The paint remover (yellow in color) is painted on and then left alone to do its work. Over the course of several hours, the remover basically lifts the paint from the aluminum. Some paint removes easier than others and a second and third application may be necessary on small, difficult paint spots. In some cases the paint literally drips off the airplane.
