I do hope so, the paint did flatten out nicely in the end.They look really awesome. I have to admit, I wasn't sure at first. Now you have the filler and paint on, it looks fantastic, your client should be happy!
Satin is a bit easier on the eye, i learned this the hard way on the first set of table legs i made, thankfully the customer was happy with gloss. I'd have done again in satin, though.
Squint through one eye, if the imperfections disappear then job's a good unBut... All I can see is every imperfection...
Cripes that is dear!la boutique du soudeur sells assorted bottles. Slightly painfull once, but only refills after.
Things in general are a bit pricey here, hence my hoping the UK outfit would do it's deposite/rent free service here. The big guys tend to muscle out cheaper contenders.Cripes that is dear!
2.7 times more by vol. than the UK's dearest equivalent size. Do more put up with flux cored there?
Tend to agree, one is hyper critical about ones own work, when the customer usually is greatfull it just gets done. BUT, I did have one that when I delivered, he and his wife went round each bit and really looked for little defects, which I then corrected.. Did several jobs for them, until a mutual friend let me know how much they liked my work and how reasonable(cheap) it was...I decided I had other clients who were more important after that.Squint through one eye, if the imperfections disappear then job's a good un
Semi seriously though... you as the fabricator WILL notice every single little flaw. It gets me every time, when things are finished painted ready to go out, and I spot flaws... but I'm looking for them! The customer will see what they want to see. First impressions are very important. If it looks great at first glance, and the second glance, then generally they aren't going to look specifically for faults.
So... if you have an ultra picky customer, it has to virtually flawless. If they're more easy going like most people are, you can get away with very small blemishes.
When people say something is "perfect" it rarely is.
Paint finish can be quite important though. I'd never brush finish anything these days. I just can't get it right, so I won't even try. All sprayed.
