Thread: Touch up painting

    Touch up painting

    Minnie has a few places chipped that I'd like to touch up.

    What do I need to do to prepare the surface for painting?

    Do I need a primer?

    What kind of primer (if required) and paint should I use and what's the
    best place to get it?

    Hi Cloyd -



    Since the control surfaces (ailerons & Flaps) are titanium, and the gear legs are

    magnesium - they GOTTA take something different than the regular chromate primer

    - right?



    Maybe we'll hear something from somebody that just painted like Jeff Bryant or

    Brian Foote?

    Touch up painting

    Are you flying the same thing that I am?? I am not
    aware that titantium was even invented back when my
    plane was born... Now I'll agree with magnesium gear
    legs, and I've even been told that some of the control
    surfaces on Bo's are magnesium or something like that.
    The other day, it was hot enough and we were heavy at
    max (or so), I thought I might have had some control
    surfaces made out of lead.

    There are detailed instructions in the shop manual for priming magnesium. Frankly, I have had no problems with the two-part epoxy primers on magnesium; no subsurface corrosion on later examination. It is far easier to use than the traditional solutions. A BAC search for touch-up painting provides a lot of info on the subject.

    *** I followed them. I ordered the appropriate toxic chemicals and made up
    the mag juice. Then I discovered that the stuff can be bought from Aircraft
    Spruce. It's just that it's hiding in the Stitts area rather than being where
    you would expect to find it with the rest of the paints, primers, and surface
    treatments. It's called "Magnedyne" or somesuch.

    Titanium, Magnesium, Un-ub-tanium - it's not shiny silver - kinda gold colored -

    HEY - maybe Beech DID learn how to turn Lead into gold!
