Thumbs up

Thankfully the heat wave is going away. It was only 105F in the garage yesterday, the day before it was 112F and too hot to work.

Cleaning and prepping for paint takes forever. The case halves were cleaned and torqued together yesterday, then brushed with the first coat of Rustoleum 7715502 aluminum oil-based paint that's good to 300F. The case will get grilled to set the paint just like the jugs after the second coat dries and most of the volatiles have evaporated so the whole thing won't light off and go into orbit.

I like the shiny look from the Rustoleum so I haven't decided if I'm going to use the Duplicolor DE1650 Ceramic Cast Coat Aluminum paint:-
