Let's just say I haven't been approached for mass production.

When we are dealing with something as small as a 1/4A booster, a tiny amount of weight will make a difference. It's been over 10 years, but to the best of my recollection, when I made a test flight with the Beta still completely naked, it staged above the rod. The small weight gain from primer and paint made a huge difference. It halved the altitude.
I love sanding.
