    someone only went and bought my oil drum bench seat i made for the garden
    dawn said ''what am i going to sit on out there now then?''
    so this afternoon i made number 1 of a set of chairs for her.
    ''don't put these on ebay'' she said sternly once i'd finished it.
    ''course not'' i said
    i painted the wooden boards and the inside a duck egg blue/green colour and just satin varnished the rusty outside once i'd taken the roughness off with a scotchbrite pad. i'm quite pleased with it.
    before and after......

    remember i collected that type 1 and rubble a while back, the guy had another lot today that he'd already bagged. while we loaded the poor old merc again he said could you use any of this wood? some good long lengths of 6x2, some decking boards and a few lengths of batten. oh ok then, on the roof and strap it down. there was a fair bit more weight than before but we did it in 1 trip.

    i had this in for a quick job saturday, he'd recently got it back on the road after a full restoration. i had to fit a centre console that he'd bought along with an old phillips radio and an original clock. unfortunately the radio just hissed and the clock didn't work, but they look the part.........

    Love the Escort. Always been a Ford man and have had a few nice Mexico/RS examples.
