I know it's about the gravel lot, but I want to revisit the track color. That track is perfectly colored. Now...put in those gap ties!

I know. I'm really happy with it.

And I did! It's really funny, there are half a dozen visible in that shot, but the ONE spot where they're out of whack being so visible shows off EXACTLY why they're so important.

Ed is it possible/feasible to hit the grout after you wet it with a roller? Or is it better to wait until dry and use your Styrofoam technique?

Oh, absolutely - miss one tie and it stands out like a sore thumb forever.
