Working on it

Minor update

I've spent most of my spare time this past week sanding primer flat by hand with 400 grit wet and dry paper. It was quite relaxing for about the first hour, but after doing seven hours yesterday and seven hours today, the last couple of those struggling with the fiddly compound curves on the front bumper valance, it became very tedious indeed. The only thing that kept me at least partially sane this afternoon was listening to all of the old episodes of Jonathon Coulton's Popular Science podcast back to back. Unfortunately I'm nowhere near finished with the flatting-down - I haven't even started on Fenchurch's roof yet.
