    I color coated the airframe parts last summer but did not get to the stripes before it got cold, what prep should I do before shooting. Yellow ekopoly is the color coat.

    Can’t find my notes from a workshop a while back, but I believe it is to clean the area for the stripe with cleaner. Mask the area off for the stripe. Wipe with isopropol alcohol (94% or higher) to remove impurities on the surface, scuff with Scotchbrite pad (maroon) and wipe with isopropol alcohol. Repeat alcohol wipe. (Wipe in one direction only and never use the same area of the wipe twice.) Then paint. That’s how I would do it.
