Charlie,

I included the time to make the fixture and remove & replace instrument panel, landing gear etc.

Last time I did this was 17 years ago. If I did this again it would probably take 100 to 120 Hrs.

I would roll on 3 coats of vinyl ester surfacer and only sand once. This would save lots of sanding.

That's fine, just answering a question.
Your time, including the fixture etc., may help others.
I "know" Hank/UH has various fixtures for various projects from decades of repair/refinish. I know, I have been through some of those as a "shop rat".
It can be amazing when some peeps wonder "why so much time/money" for repairs or refinish.
This thread gives some idea.

Thanks for the thread, kudos to those that do repairs or refinishes. I know a few on here have been through the "skunk works" as helpers or recipients, so they have some clue.

Yes, lots of work.......
