I’m new to these forums and thought I’d introduce myself. Apart from my love for cars, I also like to up cycle and repurpose. I thought I’d share some of the items I have recycled. I resized the pictures so they’d be ok for the forum, if you want see more detailed pictures and other projects (before, after and higher res) then checkout my blog http://www.reinventingwheels.blogspot.com
Enjoy!

Old tractor seat that I made into a bar stool

Vintage Vespa (beyond repair- check my blog) that I cut up and remade into a lounge chair and a laptop work station

Thanks for the positive responses.. I appreciate it! If I make anything more, I’ll be sure to share it with you all. I doubt that will happen with the focus being on building my car
Cheers..
Although, I do have a photo that may be of interest to some of you..
