Rescued this one after it was painted in winter,in a stone building and had dried like pebbledash,it sold to the first person to view it
Before

So as you can see the texture was rough to say the least so out with the wet n dry

Image
Then an intense bit of cutting and refining to produce this

Funny you should mention that, I was going to ask your opinion actually! :lol:

Yes please, have a look at the meet, I'm sure I need to paint a couple of panels and I know I need some flatting/polishing on others so it would be a good starting point. :thumbs:
