So good to see you're at something outstanding Christine!  And right, what else would you be at, of course.  

Always a treat to see your work. 

Good Lord, fancy seeing you here! :) How are you?

A light rub down with 600 and the result was good so two coats on top just to be 100% sure and I think the spraygun can go back in it's drawer :drinks:

You can see the reflections are looking relatively straight bar the orange peel

That's certainly looking really good from here :)

It's been a PITA! It can't have been much but could I get rid of it? The thing that gets me and I don't understand why, it that despite being grain filled, had countless coats of lacquer and flattened before each days spraying, the day after spraying the grain still telegraphs through the finish. OK it's only just perceivable but it's there. It will be fine once it's hardened, rubbed down and polished but how does that happen?

Well this one has been a learning experience but the sad thing is I'm not 100% sure what I've learnt :facepalm:

I suppose it's down to the myriad of things that can affect a finish, but it is a bit of a mystery why some go swimmingly well - and some just flippin' won't!
