    Bargain.

    Hate tell you this Jon, but your colour making needs a little fine tuning, at least you're getting closer, the patch below the back door on the right hand side must have been a first attempt
    Let the Labrador pick out the next colour match, it might have a better eye for it

    Thanks for your words of incouragement Terry but alas I let a proffesional do the colour matching and that was the closest colour they had.

    My first attempt was the valance under the engine lid/above the rear bar.

    BTW, the dog is a Rhodesian Ridgeback, at least your close, ;)

    Thanks Judy.

    It was never supposed to be a top job, just something that looked better than the massive primer patches!

    Sammie said I can have all the linen I need, but only from the shelves I can reach!

    The rag shelf is the only one I can reach.:eek:

    You posted the finished job too quick for me Jon, I was referring to the primer grey and the black patch as the poor colour match, I did quote the pictures with the comment..... Hmmm.... Not funny if you have to explain it

    Ahhhh, that makes sense now.

    I wondered why you had quoted the "before" pics :lol:
