I used to have a neighbour who was a professional spray painter, and very skilled he was too.

But when he was doing a quick job with minimum prep he'd say "I'll give it a bit of a squirt".

Looks like he's been here.  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272575900232

Gulp. I don't know whether to laugh or cry over that abomination.

Oh well, at least he didn't say 'refurbished'.

The last picture has the poor thing sitting in a back garden so I would presume it was painted to protect it from the elements

It looks like he ran out of paint while doing the flex. After a fine rub down, I'm sure he'll get the plug on the second coat

Methinks he bought a duffer & wants shot of it quick, just given it a cursory flash over by the looks of it, inc. the bedways & couldn't be bothered to even move the stuff off the back of the tray, still see the previous 'green' ? colour where he/she has skirted around with the spray gun.
Steer clear I would say unless someone has the facilities/time/finances for a complete strip down / rebuild... I could be wrong...?

Ahhhhhhhhhh, I know who the seller is now. yes

There was a member here asking advice about painting a chuck the other week. Seems like he took the advice posted on his forum and did not paint it. smiley

Has anyone got the cojones to ask the seller a question? Such as "Why?"
