 :drool: :bowing:

I've never liked smoothrite spray, it always seems too thin but yours looks good, did you use Hammerite primer for aluminium? smoothrite can come away from ali a bit too easily.
It makes you look a tvvat but question everything!!


Tom, belligerent old tosser!!
Dazed and confused
