What van did you go for in the end? If I remember rightly you were also fond of Toyota but real Toyotas, not badge only. I'm changing mine, can't wait any longer for a new hiace so think I'll go transporter.
DeWalt dealer Irvine. £50 Screwfix. Best boot I've bought. Don't like laces as get dry and slow on and off. These boots keep fantastic shape and don't go loose like other slip ons. Really good support and comfortable. Can really take a battering.
When applying finish, yes you will have much more working time and can be re-worked with sponge. I sometimes sponge finish and sometimes steel trowel, depending on what's required. The bauwer lite base is very light and can be put on at a crazy thickness without slumping. But I can't reiterate...
Not this one, but have used Bauwer which might be a similar product. The base coat was so light it was like floating marshmallow. If it says to dampen base before applying finish then make sure that happens, even if still green as the bauwer top needs this to prevent shelling.
Journalist from BBC Wiltshire radio called me today, asking about plaster shortage and said they're doing a programme on it Friday 1.30pm ish and asked if I'd contribute. I said I will and will try not to swear.
