    I had the same issue when doing my Vagabond fuselage recover.
    Spraying Randolph enamel was tricky for me. Some areas of my cowlings are perfect with no orange peel. Other areas have some.
    Fortunately it isn't really that visible unless you get up really close.

    Today we weighed the I-ARME:

    545 kg, ready to fly, with oil, with radio, xponder, intercom, without fuel. I think there are about 10/15 kg of interior panels. Anyway...Not bad!

    That translates to 1,199 lbs. which is not bad including the oil.

    Yes, not bad.

    I haven't an "IFR" panel, very simple, on left side airspeed, vario, altimeter, turn indicator, compass and the nice 8 days clock.
    Right side Rpm, map, oil temp/pressure, 2 fuel level, egt, cht.
    In the middle Trig 833, Bendix Xponder and intercom.
    Garmin aera 660 inside the left yoke.

    Now I must check weight and balance, I have 174 kg on the nose and 371 on the main.
