Apologies for the delay. Chinese New Year = virtually all shops selling the equipment I need have been closed for a week. Managed to get sandpaper, working gloves, wire wool, face mask, paint brushes and masking tape at an international hardware store but they didn't have any paint stripper.
Ordering the rest online, hoping they can get it sent over in a day or so.
As a side note, went to view the new apartment we got and was AMAZED to discover a tennis court on the roof. Nobody told me, brilliant surprise! Might put a few tennis videos together on there once the frames are ready.
