    Rolling Arches

    Anyone on here recommend someone to roll my arches? Also will it matter if they are a little scabby paint wise?

    Have a go yourself as it easy enough to do, I've done it using both a steel pole and a roller and results are the same.
    You MUST use heat to keep the paint hot and stop it from cracking

    Yes roller is with me near Swansea! But its good odds some of your paint will fall off if as you say your arches are a little scabby!

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Its easy enough! just go gentle with it and make sure the paint is evenly hot to touch!
