Yes we are getting timber fence although our neighbour at the back of us who is the only one who needs to contribute, wants us to use his fencer as he is a bit cheaper ($200 cheaper) and the sleepers he does are $30 not $40 but I want to keep the one we have scheduled.

If their quality isn’t good go with your own one. Different places can vary so much. See the 1st pic below, back neighbours got this done. The retain supports are useless - not close/strong enough and it’s actually supporting from the wrong side.
Pic quality aren’t great still too early in morning.

Yes they have started winding me up a bit because I knew their fencer didn’t do timber because I asked them over a year ago when we considered using the same company. Our neighbours have been insisting they did so sent a screenshot this morning of my conversation with the fencers who clearly said they did NOT supply timber fencing.
Btw I LOVE the colour you’ve painted your fence! It looks great.

Nice colour, and you still have a decent room on the side.

Got all these from Parchem today from a last minute recommendation from a friend. Chris from the Wetherill Park store was super helpful with tips and advice.
Cleaning some plaster spills tonight then will mask up and pressure wash the floor tomorrow. Wait 1 week to dry before 1st coat

Hmm problems may not occur until months down the track (if we did it alright) but I’ll give feedback if there is hot tire pick up after the first drive on though
Plaster bumps scrapped off and scrubbed with a metal bristle brush. Walls taped up. Looks like a scene from Dexter lol.
Apparently it’s all in the prep so we want to get that as 100% as we can. We’re scrubbing down with a long handle stiff bristle brush, sugar soap and pressure washing it. It’s really lifting off all the dirt, oils and bits of plaster that couldn’t be scrapped off. Been told the epoxy won’t stick to any paints/plaster/oil/dirt and the acid won’t get through those materials. Next is acid etch and again pressure wash, maybe a few passes to remove all the acid
