    Hi @Gazza compressor set up mate, Devilbiss gpi primer gun in 1.8 and Devilbiss gti prolite in 1.3 setup for top coats, this is the setup we use for most external applications, a few other guns and bits we use in the workshop for different items.

    Thanks @Daf I appreciate your comment mate, yes thank goodness for the better weather, we are so far behind schedule due to the poor weather that lasted so long, we intend to make hay while the sunshine, with many full exteriors to be done and composite doors coming out of our ears let's just hope the summer is long

    Lovely job, nice to see PRO:smile:
    Solvent based paints have nicer finish. But the weather ends today

    Thanks @Hary yes I am definitely a solvent kinda guy, love the finish, the durability and the quick drying. Yes weather is looking bad for the next week so we will be back in the workshop on kitchens and Verometal

    Is that the metal stuff ? Had a conversation with a potential today who was looking at getting a metal look finish on some cabinetry and they mentioned Verometal.

    Good evening @RonyT yes that is the stuff, it as absolutely amazing mate, the possibilities are endless and only limited by the imagination, it is an absolute pleasure to work with and very very satisfying.

    It is 95% metal suspended in a polyester binder, it goes rock hard and is super durable the other great thing is, it has to have some polish work done so if you get the odd nib it comes right out.

    Thank you @Michael W, will take a peek at stuff on line tomorrow. I take it is a 2k system ? Set the solvents/wet stuff and add metal "dust" ?

    @RonyT yes mate it is a 2k polyester, weigh out the binder, weigh out the metal powder then mix together then 2% of the binder weight only in activator which is a peroxide hardener then mix that in, only 45 minutes pot life before it goes rock hard mate
