Doubt it'll be ready for Chrissy, but close?
Started on the switches yesterday..
Previous Pete had painted them rather nicely in Gloss Black, but that's not for me :naughty:
Stripped them back and coated with Satin Black...can see the date codes now :dance:
Now the fun part...trying to piece them all back together. Personally I wouldn't have totally dismantled them :hmmm:

Looking good, still can’t work out how you can achieve so much.
My progress is abysmal in comparison.

Haven't got far, but did finish painting the switches today. Probably shouldn't have filled in the "Pa" and "PO" lettering though...better remedy that afterwards :red:
