Loving these videos mate, you’re a natural in front of a camera and present very well without fault which is really hard
9 is more than a number

i smile ( in a good way ) when i see these vids, basically doing everything that i couldn't/wouldn't attempt and obviously enjoying yourself in the process; The process being something that it's good to see evolve.
Hats off, far more patience than me!

Day 1 ( morning ), erect gazebo/marquee.
Day 1 ( mid morning ) brunch
Day 1 ( lunchtime) scratch head, run through mental checklist
Day 1 (early afternoon) - start spraying
Day 1 ( mid afternoon ) tell myself that i didn't like my marquee being white - blue is far better.
Day 1 ( late afternoon ) pat myself on the back after finishing, grab a beer.
Day 1 ( after a few beers ) - realize it looks crap, call a professional, vow never to try it again. Order new marquee cover (white). List spray equipment on ebay.

Great job Rich
Have you got much more to do to your booth before you can start spraying. Awaiting impatiently :lol:

I will say this much Kev, I have learnt from others it is always a good idea to build some resilience into it, always have something in reserve incase progress slows up, so despite willing to have a laugh at my myself if it goes wrong I try to wait till a project has worked till I start to post it up :D

No sure I would call it painting, given my lack of talent but YES.
