After a ladder, scaffold and in the end a cherry picker its at last finished, Now all i have to do is run the production for everyone else…Special thanks to Bardia who helped with logistics and of course the Nuart Crew.

Roof repair

After 14 months in the Mallorcan sun, rain and cold, the garage roof was looking tatty a day and a half’s touch up and its a good as new. Actually it looks a bit better, the sun has bleached the colours back and the paint has settled. The problems seem to have been caused buy the initial base coat not adhering to the concrete. Funny to repair work outside, often the council just seems to buff it out before it weathers at all. Off to Munich later today, I hear the Bavarian Councils curatorial position is one of the strictest in Europe.
