This might work. Mirrored the lettering and writing on the sticky side of the doculam. Will spray a base coat just before applying it to the airframe.

I know this. That's why I'm building a SPAD out of recycled parts and you haven't been paid yet.

That's really awesome.
Do you suppose a printer could print on the back side of the doculam? Or clear monocote?
I pondered that question years ago but never followed thru.

Now that’s a thought, I just happen to have a 24” wide printer.

Tried to print some and didn’t go so well, The ink stays wet and bleeds all over. Sharpie works better.
