    Cheap paint isn’t worth it, but saying that, you don’t have to pay a fortune for decent gear.
    I’d rather put one or two coats of a decent paint on than 4 or 5 of a cheap brand as my time and health and temper are valuable. You have been warned :D

    Guys,
    So had some remdial work done with skimming and bonding and hairline cracks filled and repaired.

    My question is, the skimmed part. Does it need the ever build 406 stabilising solution on first then a mist coat of paint?. Then paint it after?

    Or go straight for a mist coat?

    Thanks

    Mist it, fill it, sand it, mist it, paint it.

    Selco doing 15l of leyland superlaytex for 19.99 + vat this month. Not my first choice of paint, but for renters...it’s perfect and good covering power.
