  1. Interesting. I also have a burgundy Ford Cargo horsebox that I am considering having resprayed. I am also considering adding a couple of tack lockers. I would be interested in understanding how much this particular job cost as, without the tack boxes, my work would be quite similar.

  2. The cream horsebox looks like it’s got a moustache – looks like the ‘Go Compare’ man lol! Great job by the way 🙂
