Primer and Paint for Body Panels for R5-D4

Today I was able to wrap up priming and painting the body panels on R5-D4.

I prepped the panels for painting by scuffing them lightly with sand paper (this had been done previously, so not much more was required), and cleaning them thoroughly.



On goes the gray primer.




And shortly thereafter, on goes the Rustoleum Sunrise Red paint.




I was able to peer into the future, and this is how everything looks.



I'm happy with the new color, it was worth the effort to repaint. R5-D4 doesn't get out much, but at least he'll look a little better the next time he does.
