What problems did you have? Can you explain?

same thing as the last time: a lot of "dirt" in the rolled on paint. i tried this in various rooms (because i thought there would be too much dust in the air), but the results were basically the same. also tried extremely cheap and extremely expensive rollers - same result. the paint is the same as always (just a different color) - i'm totally puzzled by this and can't really finish my resto because of that!

and I need the W insert  :roll:... maybe someone can help me ?  :-* :-* :-* ... 

unfortunately, i can't remember where i got mine from, it was a guy on KLOV, so i would ask there. i've tried to find the details in old emails, but was unsuccessful. if i were you, i'd put up a posting on the american forum. if everything fails, you could at least have my scratched one or ask etienne to make you a repro 8)

"VET" is an expression in dutch for "totally awesome" or "supercool" or expressions with simular meanings of thiskind  ;D
