    Was a good 11 or 12 hours. Tried to do about 9pm by torch light wasnt happening. So had no choice to wait. Did the side wall of garage friday managed to get it all floated and sponged up that day this time. Pictures dont do it justice. Happy with the results having not rendered anything before. Ready for ne fascia.
