    Today I was going to paint the background.
    Bought the paint and long roller and spare heads.
    I forgot to get a tray and Gill's at work with the car, and I'm normally organised  :mad:

    No panic, I just found a new large tray, that will do  *grin*
    I wish I put an old shirt on though.

    This tank is difficult to move.
    The back of the tank is less than 2 inches from the wall and obviously not enough elbow room for me to paint.
    I'll get there ................. eventually ;)

    Tank is looking good Stephen, I used a long reach rad roller to paint mine and only managed to get a small bit on the wall ( she can't see it , just can't move it or I'll be dead )

    Im sure you will manage Stephen :) could always paint the walls and see if Gill notices (although if she does you'll probably have to take her out for more than a meal!) lol

    Did you manage to get behind the tank to paint without doing yourself an injury?

    Wednesday 23.23pm - background painting done  *grin*
    A lot of painting and very little space (relieved).

    Thursday morning - time to start setting up.
