    Manie, to clean those consolidating rollers, burn it off over a lit gas ring on your stove then rinse off/cool under water, comes up just like a new "bought one"... If I remember I will get images of our mixing system for resin & micro-spheres...

    I was surprised the link actually went somewhere when most Americans (well USAnians anyway as I don't know about the Canadians or Mexicans and many others:D) have difficulty in calling a toilet a toilet, seeing nipple bumps, speaking bluntly about hygiene and so forth... (Yet can call people "motherf'ckrs" - something is Nuckin Futs there???)

    Well well, its Sunday eve and i am back home from the Vaaldam
    mayor party, laughed till i cried, and then some more
    talked about boats - bikes - broads and very little else
    we all raced motocross in those days KTM - Husky - Honda 600 XLR = me :D - Kwaka - Yammy XT500 and what not else (no sissy road bikes)

    here are two pics of my buddies, we have been mates since school days,
    now that our kids are all grown up we have the great fun of getting together every 3 months to talk **** and get pissed - absolutely farkin marvelous :D

    THEN and NOW
    what the fu3k happened
    fu3kit we were young yesterday :D

    Eers Wiele en Piele
    nou Brille en Pille

    = First wheels and *****
    now Reading glasses and tablets
    LOST IN TRANSLATION
    but you get the general idea :D

    The only difference I see :rolleyes: is the one pic is taken on the dry, the other in the water.
    At least it's a step in the right direction...

    I may have found a proper paint for us...

    Nice photo-edit in the more recent picture. The guy with the black shirt was clearly holding a beer bottle or can which has been edited off. :)

    I am no Spielberg and I probably will never see the red carpet at the Oscars
    but its kinda fun learning all about video and getting it on YouTube :D
    my little digital camera has a video function that obviously leaves a lot to be desired, but i thought if you cant do it small how the heck are you going to do it big, so here are my first two videos

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RRfSvzY4no

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WwNzKqopC4&feature=channel

    i am in the process of updating my blog which is way behind but the little videos at least gives a summary of where i am at now with the build.
    Building will start again in January because the wife and i are off to the mountains for two weeks now, and when i get back i am GOING SAILING for a week with the academy (Indian Ocean)

    for those of you that are following this thread and the blog:
    thanks for the support
    merry Xmas
    and a very happy New Year
    god bless
    :D

    Yes, what was written on the yellow paper. It was too blurry for me to read.
    You guys, I am starting to learn Afrikaans a word at a time.
