So last week I called over to see Dave & Matt as it’s getting real close, unfortunately the pictures aren’t too good as they’re quite dark, but here goes.

A couple of weeks ago I took the bench seat over to Bromsgrove Autotrimmers, as you all know a quality outfit that does great work.

I was hoping to reuse the original material but the base of the seat was too far gone, I have kept all the material though so if anyone has any original tucked up in their loft I’d gladly take it off their hands, until then it’s been recovered, beautifully.

Then tonight I get an email from Dave, definitely getting close if we’re in paint!

So the plan is where the new metal is it’ll get a primer, then a covering of sealing wax red, then another coat of primer before the final coat of darker red that it’s been over painted in, then it’ll be down to Steve Parsons to work some magic, hopefully it’ll look a little like this when it’s done.

Without the moss and definitely without the structural rust.
