The whole frame is made from scrap metal I pulled out of a skip One man's rubbish is another man's treasure!

Yeah, thats right Axer, I put the legs on to make it more stable, although I have to admit, the extra height is nice

wire wool brushed over in one direction will give you a decent effect mate. It dont need coated, the aluminium oxidises & creates its own protective coating.
