David's talents take to the road

06 Jul 2017

David Ablett of Christchurch has been in the joinery industry all his life and has always loved making fun things from the offcuts. His latest project includes transforming a cargo bicycle into a mini tram, finished in Resene paints and products. 

The bike is electric, always ready for Dave and his dog Lucy to go on an adventure. He says he often gets a thumbs up when passing tram drivers in the city, and a lot of photo opportunities with tourists. 

It has two looks – the VW painted in Resene Hot Chile and the tram painted in Resene Hot Chile and Resene Bardot – which takes minutes to swap out. He also used Resene Hot Weather Additive, which he says has worked a treat while painting during hot summer days.
