A Happy New Year to everyone!

Yesterday was cleaning up and final fettling before paint day today.

I first of all soaked and scrubbed with dilute baking soda in a container to neutralise any remaining flux, then a good water rinse, then clean with stainless steel CIF, another good water rinse, dry out in the sun then a wipe over with thinners (all with my latex gloves on)

I painted the brake van and also completed the sheep wagon (note NO WHEELS! :lol:) - I havent painted the internal of the sheep wagon as it will be painted brown with brush afterwards.

The grey primer started spattering but thank goodness on the underside of the chassis of the brake van. I dunked the nozzle in thinners and that fixed it right away.

Now leaving it all to cure...

It seems such a pity to cover all that hard work with something as mundane as paint ..............:roll:

Where are you doing your spraying Darren?

IT looks like a kitchen or something in the photos

Absolutely superb Daren, I'm really enjoying this thread.  I must pluck up the courage and have a go at an etched kit - one day.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Brian, I would not be long for this life if i was spraying in the kitchen. Its funny the perspective does make it look like a tile wall but its actually the interior of the spraybooth!
