Did the elevators and rudder have to be removed to do the painting?

I saw it at Barnwell and it is indeed very nice. Who painted her and what was the cost. What kind of paint was used.

Started following the Panther after seeing part of the project at 2012 Sun N Fun. Just saw the new paint on your website for the first time today. The Panther is "Beautiful"! Congrats!!!!

I was curious how much weight the Panther gained after being painted? (Yes, I'm looking that far down the road :) )

The Panther will begin getting paint next week. I am really looking forward to seeing Ms Panther all dolled up!

Dan and Rachel,

Things have been a little slow, and I was wondering how the Panther paint job is coming along?
