Having said that, I've still got lots of gold leaf in my shed. If pluggers wants his petersons 'pimped up' or if Crawford wants his falcon to look beautiful. I'm the man that can.
    I thought you said 'gliding' and wondered what on earth that had to do with it.

    Interesting stuff gilding Simon. Fascinating to watch how they do it...steady hands needed so not something you'd be doing after a heavy session in the pub I would have thought?

    I might just take you up on your offer Simon. My Falcon bent could do with some titivating to attract more attention.

    This will nicely match my gold plated toilet.
