An excellent 2 hour video in which Sam James takes you, in detail, through the finishing, priming, and painting of his RV-4 with the Dupont Veriprime and Chromabase systems.

This video is not as finely produced as some others, but the vast quantity of practical information it contains more than makes up for it. In it Sam James takes you through the complete process of building a ventilated paint booth, setting up your equipment, cleaning and etching of surfaces, priming and painting of a metal wing, a fiberglass wheel pant, and detailed custom design on a horizontal stabilizer.

By the producer of Fiberglass 101.
