splash is in the dictionary-noise made when pooring something into liquid so it must be a real measurement

A few more pictures of my last machines, The Fermec 860 and New Holland were suprisingly rough paintwork wise it looks as though the machines are just painted in their top coats without any primer which means after a while the paint just literally peels off. With the later machines i try not to do complete resprays as the paint does not fade to much you can do quite good blow-ins and get a good finish, it is also quite nice to mask up the hydraulic hoses etc it makes for a smarter job. 3 litres of paint was just about enough to do the 3CX.
