Free cap painting

The big one! Once again we are at Stourport in June with live bands, catering, an excursion, the AGM etc.....and over 300 Bongos munching grass contentedly on the banks of the River Severn.

Yes cat, You know the side windows on the bongo? Well those round cap things on the glass? Well they tend to look a bit worn and manky after a few years, the enamel paint i use is a relatively quick and very cheap fix ( a brew)to smarten them up a little bit :wink:

I've done quite a few now, and have become something of a dab hand (dabs' hand?) at it now! :D

Hopefully this piccy will show my painted caps a bit better, they are so shiny it's all reflections! #-o

The caps on mine are painted gloss black. :wink:
