Default Huge shoutout for Midwest Aircraft Refinishing

I picked up my plane this morning from Midwest Aircraft Refinishing after a long 10 week wait. But it was worth it, they did a exceptional job and N241VP looks beautiful. Look forward to seeing everyone next month at Oshkosh!

Care to share any details? Brand/type of paint, primer? Cost? Time from reservation to finished?

As someone in the middle of painting his RV-10 at home, I can attest to what a big milestone this is, particularly if you are happy with the job done.

She looks great! Enjoy many safe hours to come.

The quality of the RV10's ya'll crank out is inspiring- I hope I enjoy building the RV12is and get the confidence to attempt that project.

Congrats on a beautiful airplane.

Thank you everyone! The paint is all Sherwin Williams SKYscapes, I'm not sure what primer or acid wash they used. Midwest has a big back log, I got on their list in December of 2020 and they started working on my plane in April 2022, with 10 weeks of time at the paint shop. Cost was $32k, quality workmanship doesn't come cheap...

I did the initial design, but they include working with a designer. He made a few suggestions that I ended up using.

I think they expect you to have a basic idea of what you want and the designer is more to help you refine the design and generate the templates for the paint job.
