I put an undercoat on the tunnel bands then rubbed down and cleaned the starboard gunnel ready for painting. I thought I had some black gloss in the locker, when I checked I only had a small amount of Hammerite black and Craftmaster black enamel left, the two I could of probably stretched along the gunnel, after a bit of humming and harring I decided it best to nip over the bridge to the chandlers and pick up a new tin, they only had International jet black so that's what I got.

At 5 O'clock I went and picked the car up from the garage, it passed with no advisories, not bad for a 12 year old that has never been MOT'd before.
