Replace rotten bit of wooden windowsill(sometimes with p38 car body filler lol)

See, I've learnt something right there, tell me more about this.^

The one i have tomorrow is full of leaves as a they back on to a big woods

Easy just throw onto driveway and sweep away

 

Careful of this with the weather so wet mate, gutter bukkake can stain like blackcurrent on a white t shirt.

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

If you are going out early then expect the gutter crud to be still frozen after a heavy fronst during the previous night. I started a gutter job at 11.30 today and the crud was still rock solid. Some can be dead easy to do but others can be a right pain in the arse.

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
