Thanks Russ, and I agree with Scott, although I find it easier to explain than do lol. Anyway I got this all done, a little late but at least I finished it. Start off with some bits and bobs for the trunk:
Then made a tarp out of sheet lead:
Added some chain in the back:
Thanks again for all the lovely comments! It was a great contest, well done to everyone that entered and to Scott for organising it. Now what's next.............????
