I've missed you, JUNKMARKET Style!February 9th, 2014 in member junk
This was my contribution to the Grayson Gallery & Art Center's "Car Show" exhibit in 2012. I got my ol' Land Rover Discovery running after several years of sitting out back and then began hand-customizing it! I masked off for tiger stripes on the hood and added small hand-cut stencils for painting leopard spots to the roof edges. Raiding my stash of vintage stuff, I attached an old farmstead's block & tackle/pulley to the front bumper along with a rusty ol' gas can. The roof was the perfect place to stack up old travel cases, fishing and camping equipment, my prize 22 rifle that belonged to my late brother, Chris, my personal walking stick, metal cooler and even a golf putter. You just never know what could be encountered in the beautiful Kentucky woods! Inside, it's loaded up with vintage everything - boots, binoculars, movie cameras, fishin' vest and a fun little alligator head for the dash. It was a real hit at the show... I will add some step-by-step pics later.
