COMMENT: i think God just fucked my hobby with help from Wilkos
if you could have read my mind earlier today you may well have heard the words
for that was on my mind.
for the last 2 years or so since i have been an intense hobby type geek, i have used Plastikote Super Matt Butterscotch to spray my vehicles. it looks a bit iffy on its own but with more than one vehicle next to each other it looks shit hot.
i used to buy it from Wilkos.
but wilkos dont stock it anymore....and even worse, they have no empty slot where IT COULD be... its just gone.
yes, ohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuck indeed.
it seems they still make it but it might not have been updated on the website. its available online but who knows if thats just a "ghost" of a sale, waiting to be replaced with "no longer in stock"
so next step was search the plastikote website for uk stockists.... Focus and B&Q.
so, seconds after first publishing this post i blasted over to focus in the Jaguar... and found nothing.
every plastikote color but fucking butterscotch.
last chance saloon, B&Q, 3 miles down the A610.
searching the ailes like a man needing a shit REALLY really desparately i found the plastikote sprays....
and B&Q had about 100 cans of butterscotch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what concerns me is tho, all of B&Q's cans were of a very old design. so, not many people at all want this colour. if im planning lots of new vehicles it looks like id better stock up!
i hope you enjoyed this little ramble into my sunday but i assure you... if your favourite paint has been discontinued it sucks ass
