Next Job.
Front inner wings showing lots of chipping and paint loss, so washed them down touched up with some UPOL Gravitex. You can tell how good a product is by the length of the hazard warning sheet that comes with it.

Really easy to apply with a brush and looks tidy. Just waiting for it to dry before I get a look at the finished layers
Umm! What to do next?

I used Gravitex (sprayed) as an undercoat when I restored my milling machine. Really good stuff. I've found an even better product since: Upol Raptor. Check it out for next time.

David. Took me a long while to crack the code of picture posting. There's several ways from what I've seen.
Hopefully Stu's details work for you. I use Dropbox. Bit long winded, but works for me.

Stu, thanks for the attention. Somehow I have not received your message. Outside the Forum I only use g-mail.
Also I notice on the Forum that if I have ticked for Notify new reply to postings I am not advised.

It got changed somehow during the moderator set up. I'll get Chris to change it back one day. In the meantime I'm stalking everyone incognito :lol: :D

There are several threads linked to the matter you just need to know the keyword to search: such as posting photos

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10113&p=77621&hili ... tos#p77621.

But everyone has their own preference on photo hosting sites so I dont try to force onedrive on any member, even though the royalties are good :wink: :lol:
