    Here is a kitchen we completed at the end of this week, looking very retro now with its semi gloss finish matched to Little Greene acorn 87, don't usually take this sort on as they aren't usually worth the hassle but this one came out remarkably well considering it is a 25 year old council fitted kitchen, wouldn't look out of place in a 70's camper or airstream.

    Looks good job, nice transformation.
    Was lady (or man to be pc) donning pinafore and have scarf covering their hair rollers? Seems quite a few people are also living retro.

    Yes andyfloss very Nora Batty esque hahaha, wouldn't have been my choice and must admit looked dreadful in the workshop sitting on the drying racks once sprayed the colour was really insipid but once it was all reassembled it allcame together and two very happy customers

    @Michael W - It wouldn't look out of place in a VW campavan that. What products did you use and how did you spray it ?

    @RonyT all done in Renner 2k pu solvent, all sprayed with a compressor, primed with a Devilbiss gpi and top coated on site with a A.N.I R160 mini gun using a 100 litre 14cfm compressor, back at the workshop we use a Devilbiss gti prolite for the top coats, all air fed setup in the workshop with 100 cfm rotary screw compressor

    :thumbsup:
    Hearing some good things about the Renner products. Especially their clear coat stuff.
    Just out of interest, why did you prime on site and finish in the shop ? (or have I completely misunderstood).
    I ask as I normally just take the lot away and prime and complete off site.

    Good morning @RonyT sorry I didn't explain myself very well, yes we take everything away for prime and top coat, we only spray carcass leading edges and end panels on site and a few other unremmovable items. The products from Renner are great, I couldn't recommend them highly enough and one of their main UK distribution warehouses is just outside of the village where I live.

    Here is a small piece of furniture we completed with another kitchen we did early last week, all Renner with Renner self sealing clear coat on the top in 25% gloss level so easy to use.

    Thanks @mistcoat.
    We wish you could get these done in a day hehe, we have no idea how some companies are able to do it or especially do it right in a day, the one we are doing this week is a monster in comparison, with a full vinyl strip back to the mdf even on all the end panels and on site stuff which are generally melamine covered chipboard, we have had major issues getting stubborn glue residue out of all the little detailed items like faux pillars on faux tongue and groove mdf end panels on a kitchen island, I will uoad the pics when completed next week.
