^ I have definitely thought about it big issue is that I have already cut holes for some hinges and brackets on the wings. That said - Gentleman my head is officially hurting, aggressively, from the mountains of circular information I have read on this subject. There is no doubt in my mind that in the 15th year of our lord in this 21st century that there exists an effective means of coloring dacron fabric in situ and then applying clear coat. I know hang glider guys have done it and I know sailors have done it. The problem comes that everyone just references something they saw or bought after the fact but provide no useful information as to the process. I have heard from many sources that applying latex paint direct to dacron sailcloth holds up quite well. My only issue is that I don't want this to look too dull and I would like to clear coat over the latex - unless it is possible to get a good finish out of the latex. Again I want to keep weight down as well. I do realize that I am asking these questions in the wrong place now. I need to be asking ultralight and sailors specifically. One problem is that when sailors are asked they tend to say "just do what the aiplane guys do" not knowing the differences we have discussed I do not doubt rec mobs experience with applying color to sails but my intuition says that if clear can adhere, so could color. My suspicion is that the color coats lacked the flexibilty of the clear and fatigue cause them to fail. Flex additives may be able to solve that. However, what I would really like to do is something more along the lines of silk screening the fabric with a very light coat of color and then clear over that. There is no reward to be had without hard work!
