Nearly finished the old roof box refurb.
The painting was a bit of a nightmare if I’m honest. I had to do a fair bit of touching up with a fine brush here and there. The surface of the wood isn’t so smooth as it was when new, what with the ravages of time and the weather, so it wasn’t so easy to stop leaks at the edge of the masking tape.
I might give it a coat of varnish on top as I have a tin of the Craftmaster stuff to hand. The inside and edges already have lots of coats of varnish since new, but that hasn’t stop the wood discolouring as you can see. Then I need to reinstall the bungee hooks for the cover and the ironmongery(aluminiummongery to be truthful) that holds the TV aerial mast and repair a small split in the seam of the cover, oh and paint the triangular end pieces that hold the roof up. Blimey, I haven’t really nearly finished have I?
