Thunderbird HQ

Thunderbird HQ

Val and Cam have created a space, now aptly known as Thunderbird HQ. On the upper walls they have Resene Spanish White and then lower walls in Resene Edgewater.

Val is obsessed with the 50s style and had starting doing her garage project when she met Cam. Val already had the floor tiled as the Thunderbird leaks oil. The jukebox and diner booth were set into space.

The walls were chip board and ugly so Cam suggested they research 50s style American diners. With that they raced over to Tauranga Resene ColorShop and found it easy to pick just the right colours.

The excitement grew as they sanded and painted. They needed a name for the garage – thanks to the Thunderbird, the name Thunderbird HQ worked perfectly. Val ordered a neon sign to finish the setting. Now it’s complete, Val and Cam have so many fun times in their garage meets diner.
