Clean

Shiny steelSo here's a view of the section of deck I've just finished wire brushing and cleaning up.

Pete in answer to your comment, I've learned that exposed steel starts to rust almost immediately, unless the atmosphere is completely dry. So the trick is to get a coat of primer onto the bare steel as soon as is practical.

Needless to say, the very next thing I did, after a cup of tea, was to get going painting with the primer.

All this work makes for filthy dirty bath water once back at home!
