June 27 - Less than three weeks ago, the sweepstakes Bonanza was blue and white. Then the paint was removed, revealing the silver aluminum. The refinish process began with an overall application of a green epoxy promer. After priming, color was applied starting with a coat of Matterhorn white, followed by Flight red over the lower half of the fuselage. Trim colors of silver and gold tastefully accent the design. The new N number, N2001B, will be laid out on the aft fuselage and will be red, with the letters slanting aft. Murmer Aircraft Services uses polyurethane and urethane paint produced by Sherwin Williams under the Jet Glo and Acryl Glo names. These modern paint systems result in a smooth, wet-looking finish and provide years of protection from sun and weather damage. Scheme Designers, the company that worked with AOPA to create the paint design, provided a very detailed set of working drawings for Steve Tolson and his crew at Murmer. These expanded drawings ensure that the painters replicate the details of the design.
