Art work by Emilie and Concrete by me (https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6930d3ad12d5044c&ref=1&id=6930D3AD12D5044C%21863&sff=1#cid=6930D3AD12D5044C&id=6930D3AD12D5044C%211051):)
Nice work team :)
Will be expecting to see lots of high quality work this year now....
21-01-2012, 08:47 PM
Thanks - don't know about that but it'll be easier to set up and no bloody PA to worry about. That's got my vote :)

It certainly is your peer, you are almost as big as it.:lol:
Don't let it pressure you into doing things you wouldn't normal do.......... like 60min subs.
21-01-2012, 09:02 PM
That's the Xmas (chocolate) bulge. I can only hold my breath for 10s. :P
60min? Now you're dreaming...
21-01-2012, 09:21 PM
geez about time too. You need to paint the peir of course, and the Obs is a bit............small, but its nearly there.
21-01-2012, 09:23 PM
Good looking pier, very art deco:thumbsup:
60 min subs..... if you get that AO groovin'.... you'll try one I bet.:P
21-01-2012, 09:42 PM
Congratulations, that looks awesome!
22-01-2012, 08:04 AM
Magnifique! J'adore l'arte de sa fille.
22-01-2012, 08:41 AM
!? .. You must be (color) blind. Stop doing what you're doing. :P No Obs for me. No point. Too much LP. Besides I like getting out of Sydney.
Hehe... yeah I reckon too. ;)
Thanks Rolf. :thumbsup:
Merci beaucoup Rod. :)

Was the art work how you managed "planning permission"?
22-01-2012, 09:38 AM
Can we now expect peerless photography?
22-01-2012, 09:40 AM
Nope. Emilie did what she wanted with it. The relocation of the original clothes line leaving a big hole was what sweetened the deal for the pier.
22-01-2012, 09:41 AM
For sure :P... Everytime I get out and the weather is good enough for a long drive. This is only saving me time setting up when I'll do Ha from home. That's the idea anyway.
22-01-2012, 10:08 AM
Looks great Marc :thumbsup: . I decided to get a steel one fabricated , still waiting
on it .
22-01-2012, 11:25 AM
I made the mistake of showing this to my family - now both my kids are assembling the paints to have a crack at my pier!
22-01-2012, 12:22 PM
Very good Marc! Love the paint job! :thumbsup:
22-01-2012, 04:09 PM
Thanks Mark. My steel fabricating skills are next to nil which is why I went the concrete way. I have no power tooling.
Hehe... yeah it's fun. They'll love it. Thanks to Cristian who recommended the polyfila for the finish then Berger Jet Dry undercoat. The rest is spraycans from bunnings and a last coat of polyurethane weather shield.
Thanks Al for all your help and advices too. :thumbsup:
Now I can't use it, only look at it. More clouds and rain for this week.
22-01-2012, 05:24 PM
What do you expect?:P
22-01-2012, 05:34 PM
Ah Marc , c'est tres magnifique!:painting:
:party::party::party::party::party: Happy days!
22-01-2012, 11:43 PM
I was peering at your pier and thinking it is without peer...and you look like a pier of nutters :thumbsup:
22-01-2012, 11:51 PM
What a cool pier Marc.
Full marks for that one.
23-01-2012, 07:19 AM
Thanks Bart. :thumbsup:
That we are. Quite a peer review! :lol: :thumbsup:
Thanks Ric. Can't wait to use it though. :rain:
23-01-2012, 04:23 PM
You can even give it a name "Mon Ami Pierre"
Bonjour mon ami
23-01-2012, 04:35 PM
Could be... ;) Grace already has a name for it though.
It's : "Oh my god! What is this!"
24-01-2012, 12:15 AM
Cool! Love it - well done!
24-01-2012, 06:51 AM
Thanks Matt. :thumbsup:
28-01-2012, 04:08 PM
I take it that is the sanitised version.:lol:of what she said
28-01-2012, 10:52 PM
well I am impressed - wonderful work of art - almost priceless ;)
29-01-2012, 05:27 PM
She's actually been pretty good about it.
Thanks David. Groovy painting hey?
30-01-2012, 08:41 PM

30-01-2012, 08:43 PM
