Well a Happy Fathers Day to all dads and father figures.
Apart from my MiniMes giving me this card (thanks lads) I spent some of the morning with them painting a BR tail lamp I’ve got for my office (every office needs one you know).
It was a proper eBay bargain (unlike some of the comedy ones labelled as such, but no where near, or my favourite “RARE” when there’s 20 odd on sale).
The lamp’s bottom had rotted out so its lost the air holes at the bottom but apart from that is in good shape with secondary bottom in, reflector still inside and the red lens complete (no I won’t be shining it out of the window, what would the neighbours think?!)
Given it’s total lack of value I thought it’d be a nice project for me and the MiniMes so having spent some time cleaning it up over the last week or so we cracked open the white paint.
Once I’d persuaded no.1 not to use so much paint and no.2 that the red lens didn’t need paint on it, it went ok. It will need sanding back and a top layer putting on, along with a clean up of the glasses and lens but I just loved the amount the boys wanted to help.
Roll on the next joint project.
