Thanks mate, its VHT heat proof metalic paint, good on everything but tracking which is why the av bay is just a bostons brand white gloss.

Looks pretty!

My personal opinion about VHT - probably good on engine blocks, brake calipers, radiant heat etc...no good against aerodynamic heating/friction...

IMHO of course, still, looks good mate - well done 8)
Me and my rockets run on Moonshine.

Thanks Jase, thats good to know, Luckily this want be going fast (sims at mach 1.3 but i doubt that) I like that it sets fast, and can be cured at 90°c for an hour to get a nice hard finish in a short time.. and with only a few days till launch I figured that would help :)
