I had a day off for worrying about dridh and her ops (it was raining anyway tbf) and nurrrrgh. Need another day!
Although. Wait. It doesn't actually matter if I don't finish all the plastikoting by Monday, because I'm up in Thirsk with nothing to do on the 24th... Although paint smell dissapating issues... waaah. I want another day!

Also my right arm is now really stiff. *cries*

Some of those bits (mostly left where the upper tray rests) physically wouldn't come off though. But anyway, may I present coat 1 of side 2 of panel #4!

And the other bits (panel #3, sideways, is drying its feet)

~36hrs now :lol:

Just done the bars on panel #2 (back big one) and plastikote coat 1 of one side.
Having a few issues as the plastikote is getting to touch dry much quicker. I'm wondering if since I bought it last (i.e. the red pot) they've slightly changed the recipe. It's annoying as it's leaving brush strokes. Nevermind, I don't actually care lol.

I am having some hot chocolate to celebrate :D

I only have today and the rest of tomorrow to finish it in. ARGH. Hopefully going well enough...

This plastikote isn't going very far though :( Just over one put has done one coat of the back panel (and the bars). I have just under 2 pots left. Obviously that's not going to do it all.... Since I bought the last 3 dark green, I'm going to have to buy a different colour for the rest of the panels. I am painting all of the yellow corner things red now. And the feet of the panels will be too, since I have enough of that. However for the main bit of the cage (probably the short sides), if I can't get any dark blue, whatdoido?!
