Painting the Panel

Nothing to fantastic here.  I put my screws in a piece of cardboard so that I could paint them too.  Then I masked off the panel and primed and painted it.

One note about priming.  This was my first experience with DX-1791 primer.  I was told to NOT put it on too thick, as the etching chemicals need to react with the metal.  If you put it on too thick, after you paint, eventually the un-used chemicals will cause the paint to come off in sheets.  On my first spraying, I had it WAY too thick and hated how it turned out.  I used Acetone or MEK and wiped it all off and then re-shot ti.  Turned out great that time.
