Work has finally started on the dome! As suspected, the paint falls off, there are about four layers, and once the top coat has been scratched off, the rest scrape off with a little elbow grease.
The two pictures here show the dome when we started, and the dome after Alan and I had spent about half an hour on it. Another half an hour and that will be done.
Scraping wise, we are almost there. I know I've been saying this for two weeks now, but really, we are. There is a little paint left on the fourth side, right at the bottom and to the right. It is so difficult, ideally we could do with the services of a contortionist to finish that off, along with the third side which also has a small amount of paint at the bottom.
I think we are planning to do an hour or so tomorrow evening which will hopefully see the external scraping complete.
