The original plan was black but with lockdown it was out of stock. I've got some since and I'm doing the fire escape. They needed painting cos they'd oxidize indoors.

Thanks Steve,it is really coming together.
The shelving came from Tufferman (rival to BigDug). I already had the recliner chairs, sheepskins, picture frame and fake fireplace surround. Thus far, even laden, I've not needed to bolt the shelves to the walls. I did use connecting clips.

I started adding spares to eBay yesterday. The first being: Franco Columbu's Complete Book of Bodybuilding. Today is Lou Ravelles Grand Slam

Arriving after this mornings post was a package from Rosemary - containing three spiral bound sets of Muscle Mob (unique) from David's collection as well as a few additional Bodypower magazines (2 spares from the overall set). As always, if I have spares, I add the better issue to the collection and set aside the lesser for sale
