Plonker!!!

I'm being brave putting this on here for all to have a giggle at my expense!!!

The story is,,,,I'm having new tubes fitted on my tornado over the winter break because they look very very tired,,I thought a simple thing to do till then would be to paint the tubes with that very expensive flexible paint for the job 44 per litre ,so I bought 2 and a litre of topcoat for the floor,simples! Put first coat on and looked good,put the second coat on this morning and looked even better with a slight glossy finish to it,great I thought ,,went then to give the floor a coat of the toplac I bought,all the same colour,,,,you know wer I'm going!!!! Fxxk me I've only gone and used toplac as the second coat on the tubes!!!!!!! It's all dried fine but have a sneaky feeling it might all come off next Saturday. Oh well shit happens,,the menai straight might have a orange streak running threw it,,haha,,,another 130 down the drain

You wont get lost then, just follow your trail back. Brilliant - like a chart plotter, only on a scale of 1:1
