    On one of my journeys I came across this Tilley R1 heater, this is the condition I found her in.
    I will not re-spray this one, as i like the original look, and besides she is in excellent condition.
    I often use this heater in my shed when its cold, It gives off magnificent heat and keeps me warm.
