An impressive transformation! How did you paint the cockpit framing? was it masked and sprayed or another process?

Thanks, Tom

Thanks, Tom. I painted the canopy frames one by one using a liner brush and some magnification. When my hand slips slightly, as is inevitable, I wash off the paint with another liner dipped very lightly in thinner. If this fogs the adjacent windows---as sometimes happens---my usual cure is to scrub the affected area with a harder, more brittle brush ( lightly does it ) and follow with a layer or two of Future floor polish.

Excellent description of your process! I look forward to trying them myself in the future.
