Incredible job gameswat, there is something beautiful about that lightly hand polished faceplate, an ethereal quality that the final paint job cloaks.

An excellent job and proof that patience and skill are essential to achieve a result like this. Things that very few of us have in abundance, unlike you.
The lengths you got to are astounding …..

proof that patience
Funnily enough I don't think I have a lot of patience.....which is partly why I've learnt to restore as many things as possible myself because I hate waiting for others. I'm no team player that's for sure. I also use a lot processes that set and dry really quickly for the same reason!
