Handicapped Access Door ~ Historic Federal Building

I fixed a rusty steel door yesterday. I used Duraglas on some metal lath.

Brushing on Hammerite paint is like working with marshmallow cream. You get one or two good brush strokes and that's it. Done. No more trying to correct anything...and it stinks. Xylene! Duraglas is interesting. While it is curing up you can cut it with a sharp wallpaper knife. When it's hard you can't do much with it at all. So you have to stand by and feel it for the right time to trim it. I used it at Haddonstone for repairs to their ornamental models and some molds.
