GRACE RESTORATION 22:  Here's a glimpse of the new serving window.  We redesigned it to be half as big again as the original and with a fold out bench top which will have a timber top.  The close up finishes on the pits and notches I've been filling and sanding. The things you do for a great paint job... prep.  Please note the 0H&S approved milk crate, secured bamboo upright and cordoned off working area.

Grace RESTORATION 28:  Red Seat Diaries Edition  The original driver’s seat is now the passenger seat and the ‘new’ driver’s seat comes out of an old Jaguar.  It’s like driving whilst sitting in a Chesterfield!  The steering wheel has successfully completed the Shane Warne teeth whitening treatment.  #RestoringGrace  _ Shane Warne, Vintage Ice Cream, Saving Grace, New Drivers, Chesterfield, Teeth Whitening, Jaguar, Diaries, Recreational Vehicles

RESTORATION 17:  The Arse End. All four back doors are on, spaced and fitted. Lots of putting them on, taking them off, tweaking them and refitting ... rinse & repeat. That's been a constant in this project. Grace is old, she's not square. Nothing fits without a bit of shoe horning... or a lot.  We have wires and insulation in the walls, a tow bar assembly designed... turns out we'll be towing cool room trailers & the like to festivals.  Fibreglass floor and rear window glass to happen… Vintage Ice Cream, Saving Grace, Window Glass, Back Doors, Rear Window, Insulation, Trailers, Festivals, Repeat

RESTORATION 16:  Stripping.  We got a big chunk of work done on Grace over this Melbourne Labour Day long weekend.  The door strips came back from the sheet metal workshop and I fitted them up, siliconed and riveted them in.  Apparently some on Team Grace think I'm slow.... that I'd be sacked if I was being paid by the hour (why are people so unkind?). Anyways, It's amazing how these strips finish off the sides... even without the paint job they change the look of Grace. She's looking… Door Stripping, Metal Workshop, Vintage Ice Cream, Labour Day, Saving Grace, It's Amazing, Sheet Metal, Long Weekend, Melbourne
