Finished rudder priming

Today my friend Vic came over and helped me get the last couple parts of the rudder primed. He has a lot more experience using spray guns than I do so he was able to get the parts sprayed more quickly than I would have done. The primer I’m using, Ekopoxy, seems to spray on with a little texture but if you get a good wet coat it will lay down fairly smooth once it dries. It was nice having him here to confirm that the spray gun was working correctly so I now know that is just the way the primer works rather than me not setting up the gun correctly.

Now all I have to do is wait a week or so for the parts to cure and then I’ll be able to start riveting the rudder together finally!
