Fail to prepare, prepare to fail...
People often ask me how long a repair should take.
Well, in time-honoured TV fashion, here's one I made earlier.
The entire job took 3 hours from unpacking the van, to loading it back up again, and it was basically 75% sanding & surface preparation, and the remainder was spraying.
Customer was delighted, and for all those who say you can't get a decent result with aerosols - think again.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
