Remember the tricycle? How could you forget ...
Well she is now in bits and the frame has been for a facelift
I chose 'Alpine Blue' - a bit like the previous colour but paler and a bit more sophisticated, I think.
It looks quite weird without the wheels and such (before you say it ... yes, I know it looks quite weird with them too!)
and then a bit of elbow grease is required (as well CRC, scrapers and wire brushes) - this is the 'before' picture
These are a few of the essentials for this kind of work - surgical gloves, rags and plenty of tea!
and then ... here is one I prepared earlier, as they say - this is the 'after' picture
So I have spent the weekend up to my elbows in grease and rust ... but I'm pretty happy with the result.
Watch this space for the next instalment ... dum dum dum!
