Booo! Bad rain, bad. That gloss white sounds like it will look really classy. Good luck!

So I have painted the case, the drawers, and the tongues inside the drawers. I have only painted the face of the drawers, but masked the rest so hopefully it stays the nice grey powdercoated look.

This was taken last night after the rain-interrupted paint sessions. The floor of my shed may never recover (overspray from the makeshift verandah I built to paint under)

Images in previous post were from today. Second coat looking nice and glossy.

Can't wait til next weekend when I try to get it inside and assemble it. It's gonna require removal of a double-width sliding door....

The case came out really straight. I was a little worried that the white would show any imperfections, but it looks like you did a great job with the bondo. Looking sharp!

Too good. Looks amazing. Next time I need a flat file done up, I'm employing you.
