I picked up a new factory Lancair for one of my students in Bend in 2001. We were shown how the composites were laid, gelcoated, painted, etc. I could see how the new "polished 195" look could be obtained with an exposed gelcoated CF weave, just like a ricer hood. With the advancements in colored composites, you could easily add some color w/o weight, but at great expense. Wonder if you could get an STC to vinyl wrap the bird in that mirrored film like that BMW that's floating around the web right now?
