Yes, sure, it is stupid not to do some more work after doing a lot of it already.
Damn, Zombie, you're unstoppable. The only work I actually did was to prolongue the life of an outside table (with attached benches) by sanding and paiting it. I left the poor table to the elements for too long already and it was either buying a new one (400€) or investing some work and money (cca. 50€). Which I did. I'll post that but first I have to decide for a new provider of web space for pics. I know I can upload them here but still, I like having the pics in one place. Photobucket is suddenly acting up on me and if you look at my AARs, the pics are ruined by watermarks etc. to push me into a monthly subscription.
If you can contain and maintain for another decade, Zombie - and your dedication made me a believer - I'll give you a free pass on the sill plate.
So, your ever roaming keen eye spotted decaying mortar joints, but I see you got to the bottom of it all pretty quick. Crummy metal really is our bane, this time a gutter spike. Just think of the cascading costs that result from it.
Service door: not bad he says? That red is now far from dead! Though I can imagine opening that door only to find the contrasting tones, outside and in, rather odd.
Service door under the weather? Zombie keeps it together!
Of course, something must come apart a little first and you can't be faulted for the care you're sparing that so often assailed kick plate.
Long parallel swipes for uniformity, noted. Good thinking there.
One could very much start to see a significant difference in surface reflection at the 1000 grit point. And then you went for vanity, mildly cloudy as it may marginally remain in the end. When that thing is back in place and the sun hits it, though, the boss may have to grab himself some shades.
Let it not stop you - carry on in your pursuit of excellence!
Plugging holes and covering stains, even when nobody complains!
Alright, Zombie, I suppose one could get past the little touch-ups on those boards, fast and loose remediation job as it was, and your everyday cart got the last remnants of a spray paint as a makeover real quick...
By contrast, what really takes the cake here is how adoringly cared for the park bench now is and still stands to be, as stated in your plans for extra coating top and bottom.
Something is going on - is that a picnic with the ladies I sense in the air? Well, if so, more power to ya!
GameStar's Bonus CD is a veritable technological time machine, Zombie. Looking at it one is reminded of both software and hardware that was in use back then.
Indirectly, it also puts into perspective the importance of such discs when Internet usage was not that profusely widespread (not to mention the speeds you could download stuff at) and the storage capacity meant you could cram quite a lot into one of these.
PC PowerPlay XCOM:EU demo disk - your sleuthing is noteworthy. Issue #210 is hidden in plain sight right at the center of the saucer on both the A and B sides. Worry not, it happens the best of us, and I don't mind counting myself in that number.
Do you expect the tool coating to last for several years? In my experience any colour on any of the tools was... well, sanded away pretty quickly by the... sand!
Actually I'm more annoyed by the colour particles making its way into the soil than I am by the degradation of the tools. Especially the wheelbarrow that had a thick layer of green colour and it is dropping off in flakes. I hate to see the chemicals in the compost, ending up in the salad garden.
One thing is for sure - there's no shortage of mislabeled games merchandise on sale out there and, beyond that, there's always room for obfuscation in collections where some titles take the headlines while the rest get buried in the small print.
Then there's the sort of merchandise that never got any visibility or wasn't made public in the first place, which makes it very hard to even properly search if you can't guess the right criteria.
The truth is you've managed to dig up a heck of a lot as it is. So, seek and you shall find, Zombie!
