A view of the cockpit with the new nonskid paint. I got the best results by mixing in polymeric nonskid compound with the paint, brushing it on, and then dusting the area with a little more nonskid compound to catch any bare spots.
This type of nonskid (paint with a grit mixed in) is a good way to go in nearly all respects. It grips really well, but isn't painful to bare feet. The one big downside is that when dirt gets into it, it stays there. The only way to clean it is to repaint. My nonskid began to get dirty almost immediately after painting, and it never seemed to look as nice as it does in this photo.
