Painting weather came and went

Today, our winds were something like 40mph sustained with gusts to 60+mph.  But Thursday and Friday were decent.  The results are below.  The process (just for the record): Painter's Touch primer, 2 coats, wait a day; then 'New' Krylon Yellow (p'tuey), 2 coats.  It covered well but the nozzle geometry did seem to be wasteful. But I had a 50% off coupon and that's what Hobby Lobby had.  I also surgically removed the stock tri-fold shock cord mount in favor of an I Build Rockets 24mm parachute anchor.
