2651Hrs – White Out
I’m not a fan of painting but I do enjoy it when the paint I’m applying brings about a big visual transformation and that’s what I got today.
It was quite hard work what with all the bending required to get to the many difficult to reach places. I walloped out the saloon area first using a roller and a brush to get a good thickness first coat. I was using an acrylic water based primer-undercoat that touched dried within an hour so by lunchtime I was ready to apply a second coat to the whole cabin.
The beauty of this low pressure kit is that the amount of overspray and bounce back is minimised making it far more friendly to use in smaller spaces like a boat cabin.
I’m really pleased with the results and I’ll be asking to borrow it again as I move through the cabins… cheers Charlie!
Anyway everything now looks very bright and airy and it’ll do for now. I’m as yet undecided about top coat colours and I’ll almost certainly look to apply some foam backed headlining to the deckheads and a few bits of finishing trim around but that can all wait until later.
