Any body seen the video on facebook the club are using spray cans and repainting the seats in the lower hope I dont get a red bum lol
Is it spray paint or some sort of heat gun to rejuvenate the surface of the plastic?
Heat gun I think.
Just remove them all! Job done
Think it’s just paint. The Twitter feed has a video
Think it’s a heat gun tbf - sounds like it’s burning some gas, a sound spray paint doesn’t make!
And there doesn’t appear to be any mess or covering of the seat numbers.
It’s a heat gun. According to youtube You can do the same to your own plastic garden furniture if you so desire
It looks immensely satisfying.
I defer to the expertise of others on this topic. Didn’t realise a heat gun could change the colour of things like that.
They’re basically just melting the top layer of plastic to restore the colour. We appear to just be using fuel cans with a nozzle fitted rather than a pipe to a gas canister.
I guess this is not recommended for a wooden stand.
You should try it and see.
Having had a quick Google, it seems that rather than melting the plastic the heat drives out any trapped water molecules and/or attracts oil molecules that have sunk into the middle of the plastic back to the surface.
That is quite impressive
If I do that to my walls at home will it save me from having to paint them?
Have you got plastic walls?
No. Would that be a problem then?
It’s a heat ‘gun’
Papering over the cracks comes to mind…
Calm down everyone, no need to get over-emulsional about it.
Another pun-fest will take the gloss off this thread.
