A Christmas miracle…

Don’t worry, work on Betty has not slowed or run aground. Rather I have become completely bogged down in the day job and completely failed to update the blog. It will not become one of the half finished passion projects littering the Internet and I fully intend to unleash the backlog of progress photos I have on my phone over Christmas. 
In the meantime, I wanted to share a Christmas miracle. A couple of months ago, I dropped a few portholes off at Davey &Co (more on them when I do my catch up over Christmas). They were a pretty sorry site and I documented them sitting forlornly on the pallet. (Always good to have a before photo, right?)

  

The refurbishment process wasn’t straightforward. The glass is screwed in Andrew seams were stuck with red lead putty. This meant the chaps at Davey had to build a rig to shock the porthole and loosen the glass. But look at them now… Paint-free, gleaming and truly stunning!
