I'm still undecided about the colour, I've got some gloss black for it but I'm thinking that going back to red might be the way to go.

What d'ya all think?
Looking good

RED of course

I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure.

Was hoping paint would get there for the weekend.

Great work. Looking forward to seeing end results

Well, my tub is now dog cock red! Pleased with the finish, may wet sand and lay another coat on tomorrow, il see how it turns out. The only blemish is a drip from the gun as I hadn't screwed the lid on correctly, it right on the keel and it can stay there. There is a bit of "orange peel", maybe I didn't have the gun set up correctly, il soon get rid of that.

A big thanks goes to Nugent, he supplied the paint and some know how to get the job done. I'm not a sprayer, infact this'll be my first try but I'm glad I did it. A good learning curve.

looks cracking!

you know you're going to sand out that drip and do 1 more coat .

bit of work with the buffer will have it very very nice if you go that far.

cheers

The reason I've not taken off the polythene is Il probably end up giving it another coat tomorrow.
