A couple of weeks ago I repainted the obsy floor and it is now a nice shiny grey. So I thought I'd better have a go at the outside of the dome.  An electric polisher makes the job far easier, along with wax designed for GRP boats. I was pleased to get a sufficiently high gloss to get a reflection. I wonder how long it will last....
