I know that watching paint dry is a bit dull, but thought that I would share the good news that the large amount of black on the frames has been done.
I am quite pleased with the outcome. I used UPOL Black Gloss which went on very nicely with no runs. There might be the odd dust speck but I can live with that.
This has really built my confidence in painting. I seem to have learned from previous mistakes and taken it very slowly applying thin even coats to build up the cover. In all about 6 hours of painting time.
