This is a project that I did a while back but never got around to posting. When we moved into our new house, my 3 year old son needed a new bed. We came across this old beat up race car bed, and I decided to give it a new lease of life. I started by giving it a really good sand back with an orbital sander.



Next was a fresh coat of paint, which I sprayed on, and then a new set of racing stripes. I had these racing stripes made up for my Lamborghini, but as seen in a previous post, I managed to botch up the respray of it, so never bothered to put the stripes on it! For the bed rebuild, I resprayed the wheels also and fixed a few bits and pieces on the wheel centres etc. that had broken over the years.



Next came a racing number, and some decals which I got online for a few bucks. The final touch was a genuine Ferrari badge, which cost four times as much as the bed itself, but I had to have it! I also glued on a couple of push-activated LED lights as headlights, which the little man can use as night lights.
