Got the first coat of primer on yesterday. Sure is a "feel-good" moment. A better man would do some more fairing, but since its pretty dang good anyway, and this project started in January 2009...
I didn't put as much fairing effort into the areas where the KiwiGrip will be applied or where the rubrail goes. These areas aren't rough, but they're not as smooth and pretty as the other areas that just gets a smooth finish.

3 coats of primer on and looking sweet! Got the last coat on yesterday afternoon. Should have temperatures in the high 80's this week, so I'm planning on starting the paint on Friday to stay on schedule. The recommendation is to wait 7 days, but with I'm taking a gamble, betting that the temps and low humidity will accelerate the cure a bit. Won't be long now... 8)
