This was a boot sale find, hand painted in purple but all the same cheap and complete.

There are signs of red paint underneath so will be matching the colour, note the back of the glass sitting low.

What intrigued me when I took this apart was the two piece casting, straight away I decided to do this a two colour re-paint, red body and white roof.

With all the parts painted and cleaned the seat unit looked really cream against the white top so decided to paint it.

So all done and re-assembled with new tyres.
