Thanks Ian. Didn't even consider metallic would be more difficult. Suppose its obvious thinking about. See ... lots to learn!

I am struggling to envisage a washing machine, connected up to a fire extinguisher, whilst powering a compressor. The mind boggles.

I did my apprenticeship in a dusty, old classic car garage in the late 80's. Just me, a senior mechanic and the boss. The latter being a mechanic in WW2. He used to tell me how he (and the rest of them) used to hand paint cars with 7 layers of cellulose, then rub them down. The finish was remarkable. Whilst there I prepped a few classics; austin healey, frogeye sprite, morris oxford and hillman minx. He would never let me spray mind. Probably just as well!
