After a building hiatus, I finally made some time to put the styrene dome ring strips on the bottom of the dome. I was going to put one layer of strips on, but decided to add a second layer to bring them flush with the thickness of the dome.
Weather permitting, I hope to prime it this weekend. Then early next week I can paint it chrome.
Also, I got the masking frisket this week from Dick Blick. My test was successful to see if it would not pull the paint off. It worked beautifully, much better than blue painters tape. With any luck I can start masking out the blue areas next weekend.
