    It was taking some time to dry to buff it.

    I used my Hilka buffer that Shirl's dad used on his Rolls years ago. I washed the wool bonnets at the weekend ready.
    Still peeing it down when I finished so inside pictures only.

    Still a few bits to do. But not much else to do on a wet day. @Rha

    Mine was to be done (Thurs) today, but just remembered it’s our wedding anniversary. No Z time today that’s fir sure. Good job I remembered just in time :blackeye:,good weather as well so maybe it will have to go to Z Fest a little dusty and unfinished with tape holding some trim on, unless the weather picks up Fri and Sat. Fingers crossed.
