Cut out rotten bit of windowsill

Make sure you leave a rough surface to join to and mix up some body filler

Fill gap or remake corner etc to rough shape

After 20 minutes you can file and sand a lot easier than wood

Then repaint windowsill

Will outlast the rest of the sill

If remaking a corner or end screw a couple of brass screws in so filler has something good to grip on

That is awesome,definitely going to try that, i've saved it in my ebay for the future.

Go to local car spares place and it is called p38

Or p40 If you want to get the stuff with fibreglass matting with it to bridge big holes with but personally i would build up a few layers of p38

That is brilliant mate. I can think of one job I turned down once where this would have been perfect. (Cutting the wood out wasn't an option).

My late dad had a car once that if you put a magnet on most of the car panels it would not work.

It had so much rust in it he spent ages filling the rust holes will filler. Bless him:D

Well the good news is the gutters should not be frozen this morning as it's raining & and a bit windy instead. Oh deep joy :(

I'm still going to pop out to try do a bit and will see how I get on. If it gets too bad I will just have to pack it in as will be using a guttervac not ladders if I can help it today.

 

I might take a few pics as you do :D

My uncle is a full time handy man, he advertises in those small trade magazines with the magneton the back, he is never out of work, all day long booked in work. He started it after he got made redundant a few years back.

No ladders needed today which made a nice change as I did not fancy handballing all this wet crud out.

I had to empty that vac 3 times too plus get rid of loads of sods as not all are in the pics. Also customer son had to give me a hand each time to dump it behind a tree as the drum way to heavy to lift over the plants on my own.

 

It makes good compost missus honest :D

Can't believe that i only started up again 3nd of june and now am culling custys for better work

Shows that hard graft does pay off

Only have 3 weeks out of a 4 week month of work but still i think i did well

Not like certain people from grimsby who did it in 7 days lol but hard graft nonetheless

 

And yes it does make good compost

Used to dump mine down allotment

It's hard graft is it not especially when they want you to clean all the plastics afterwards.

Not as good as if you had priced them

Yes it is especially when done by hand

Wet microfibre. .wet scourer and dry microfibre

Then commence lots of annoying scrubbing

Sometimes it does a better job when having to do it by hand as your can restore plastics beter than just using wfp that's for sure.
