would be handy when you do the next one to do a step by step and then make it a sticky to help us all

Not a problem Ron.

I had my son with me, and he was pestering me to hurry-up.

To be fair, I tend to use my eyes less, and my fingertips more. If it feels smooth and has no steps/ridges/etc, then it's going to be fine once the paint goes on.

I'll do a step-by-step on the next bigger job.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
