I had to go to the post office... While I was up at the shops I went for a coffee and a think about the PC. I decided I'd regret it if I put it together un painted (see previous post if you're wondering what all this is about). So as soon as I got home I pulled out the drill and set to drilling out a ton of rivets.
Then chucked carefully placed the whole lot in the bath. What I wouldn't do for a dishwasher.
