Dome Primered
#1
Because the A&P Precision dome is so thin, I didn't want to risk taking any plastic off when prepping for paint. So I first sprayed everything with a dark gray Rustolium automotive primer. After letting it dry for a half day or so, I lightly sanded the dome down with 320 grit sandpaper on an orbital sander.

I then filled the seams (on the outside of the dome) using bondo glazing putty.

The dome was then sprayed with two coats of Rustolium filler primer, sanding with the 320 grit sandpaper between coats.
