Damaged Whitefriars?
« on: May 01, 2012, 03:11:00 PM »
Hi
Another I understand is Whiteriars if so can the damage be polished out, is it worth doing and where/how can I get it done?
Many thanks in advance.

Yes one of Ray Annenbergs swirlys and no not worth the cost of restoration as the price has seriously dropped in the last few months .

That's probably not worth the effort, as too much glass would need removing
