Welcome to the “Estimator”. I suck at it. Frankly, I don’t want to hear it about the painting. You did a great job on the exterior !!!

I know what you mean about mixing fillers etc... It had been awhile since I used fiberglass resin and hardener and body filler... so I usually mixed hotter than I need to and worked fast... Which means I always made a mess!! Lol

Priming with Valspar exterior primer/sealer.

For the doors and drawer fronts I'm using these 6" foam rollers meant for painting cabinets. They roll on pretty smooth to being with and both the primer/sealer and the porch paint I'm using smooth out as they dry, so the final coat should be acceptable. I will most likely use the same size rollers to do the interior; it will take a little longer than full-size rollers but I don't really have all that much open surface area to cover, compared with all the smaller bits.

I can't believe this actually happened, but today on my early-morning bike ride I got slapped in the leg by the crossing arm of a school bus. I was peddling up a hill, saw some kids on the right and heard a diesel engine coming up behind me. I was assuming it was one of the many construction trucks that use this road, but I suddenly saw a flash of yellow out of the corner of my eye and then the crossing arm smacked my leg.

Hazing by the school bus driver? Did you say anything?

Ha ha, not hazing. This was a different school system than the one I'm going to be working for. I think the driver just didn't think about where the crossing arm was going to be; they closed the doors again right after it hit me. Still, I'm being drilled right now in the dropoff/pickup procedure, and the driver really screwed up by not making sure I was well out of their danger zone before opening the doors. He was also less than 4' away from a bike which is another big no-no.

My trainer said a driver would definitely be disciplined for it, so they're lucky I'm not a vengeful sort.
