    To cold for a coat of primer something to do with sleet. But on the plus side the Indianapolis Star is good for something IMG_20191227_085955782_BURST001.jpg IMG_20191230_105742964.jpg

    Cheers mate. I really appreciate your kind words. Sometimes you do feel like the only Alpine nut in the county and if it weren't for the help and guidance I've had from you all on the forum it would not have happened.

    I think that if you got an electric blanket under that rug you could stay there for hours. Seriously though a heated slide mat needs to be invented for Northern state garagistas. No more back or neck aches

    There used to be a "burled walnut " Formica that looked good with a clear coat.
