Must get myself one of those rollers, that's a lovely finish for primer.

Cheers Andy I wished they did make a mini paint roller, I've only used a ordinary flat 4mm hairy stick.

Wow, I'd have had that down as an airbrush finish all day long.

I really must work on my hairy stick skills if that's what can be achieved!

Hi Andy all my painting is done with a brush, I don't know if you know but I have severe Emphysema (stage 3 gold) so airbrushing is a big NO NO.
So I've got no options other than to use hairy sticks at least it's hides me mistakes if I plaster the paint on :tears-of-joy:.

Blink and you've missed it :smiling2: lovely job on the first paint coat, if you hadn't said anything I would have said sprayed.

Cheers Mick it's not that good, I haven't A/B for 7/8 years because of my health condition so had to learn to brush paint, well I'm still learning to be honest, there are one or two good hairy stick technicians on this forum and we all know who they are :thinking: .

Hi Pete
Missed this completely. A real bargain indeed. Great looking end result and as others have said your skills with the hairy stick are excellent. Hope your health is improving.
