Thanks Richard - very interesting. I would like to know how much time (labor hours) each step is taking.

I will guess it was painted/epoxy coated during the fuselage sanding.
Yes, it's shiny.

There are no "small aircraft" when holding a sander, buffer or can of wax.

looking really good. the Tetra will need a fuselage face lift in the next few years. not a total gel/paint removal like you've done, but still a huge amount of labor.
