The homes of Britain
are stacked with old possessions.

Now I've got my first item.

What looks like junk can actually
be worth a pretty penny.

I've just got a little bit excited.

Cor, I haven't seen one
that big, darling, for a while.

Henry Cole and Simon O'Brien
are here to help turn that clutter

into hard cash.

We're going to get
great money for them.

For Henry and his mechanic...

Don't think you should be
looking at that, mate.

...it's all about restoring
retro relics and vintage classics.



Oh, yes!

Whilst upcycling genius Simon and
his restorer love turning everyday

objects into fantastic furniture.

Oh, that's perfect!

Look! Feast your eyes.

I reckon you've done great things.

ALL TALK AT ONCE

They may have different tastes
but they'll always make

the old turn to gold.

Going back with you, Alan,
is £6,380.

What am I going to do
with all that?!

On today's show...

...Henry's puzzled...

When am I ever going to
see another one of them?



I don't know.

...Simon's chuffed...

...and there's positive news
at the valuation.

I don't think there'd be
any problem selling this.

Today, Simon's taking Henry
to one of his favourite

spots in Nottinghamshire.

Newark. OK, it's only a small town.
About 28,000 people live here.

Yeah. However,

it is of great strategic importance.

During the Civil War of 1642 to '51,

the town was besieged by
Cromwell's men three times.

It was known
as the key to the north.

Some 400 years earlier,

a beleaguered King John, who'd just
lost his crown jewels in a nearby

river crossing, went on
to die of explosive dysentery

in Newark Castle.

But that's not putting
these two off.

Hey, hey, straight away,
we're in business!

The pair have already rummaged
at Clare and Richard's home.

Now they're heading to the
business barns for another search.

It was so brilliant
the last time.

Well, there's more to discover.
There is indeed.

If I remember rightly,
it should be just up here.

Just up here on the left.
Mate, I'm on it.

After 20 years of travelling,

Clare's dad, Richard, has a huge
and eclectic collection of items.

While my dad is on holiday,

I've got Henry and Simon down here
to come and look at what he's got

and see if I can make him
some money while he's away.

Today is going to be a good day.

Clare, how are you?
Good to see you again.

Hi. We're back!

And it looks like
there's more stuff here.

So what's the difference between
the last place and this place?

The barn is where we keep
all the stuff and this

is where we use it as a workshop.

We keep things here
but we fix them too.

So this is where the family
does the business with the stuff

that they keep in the other place.
Exactly. Because the other stuff...

Completely clear now, isn't it?

If we make some money for you,
what's it going to go towards?

Ooh, I don't know.

Maybe a new van. A new van?!
Shall we get to work?

I think we should.
Cheers, Clare. Cheers, Clare.

See you in a little while, as ever.

That way!

As ever, they must find
two items each

they believe have profit potential.

Hello. OK, Henry Cole, it's...

When you say, "Hello,"
I know you're interested.

It's quiz time.

What's that? That's the question.

What are these things?

I'll try and give you a clue,
if I can. OK.

What are you doing? Ready?

I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready.
Talk to me.

SIMON BLOWS
FAINT NOTE SOUNDS

Australian.

Didgeridoo.

Think didgeridoo in a church.

Organ. Organ pipes.

No?! Yes.

This is a full set of organ pipes.

That is a massive organ.

Yes, organ pipes
from a church organ.

Fantastic.

I am very, very, very excited.

Organ pipes are shaped so that
when air is blown through them

they produce sound,

with different sized pipes
making a different pitch or note.

Yeah, I can tell you're excited.

All right. One organ to you,
I've got to find mine. Come on.

Hang on, Reverend.

So, straight away,
Simon has his first item -

the old organ pipes from
a dismantled church organ.

Hopefully it won't be the basis
for an excellent bonfire.

What the heck are those?

I've never seen anything
like those,

ever!

Henry has spotted two palm tree
trunks. They've been cut down,

hollowed out and polished,
but otherwise unused.

Man, they're great, aren't they?

I tell you what, mate. What?
What do you reckon on them? Lampage.

You're going to call in
the cardinal rule, aren't you?

Yeah. But Simon also
likes the look of them.

No, I'm having them.
Henry, they're my kind of thing.

I'm having them. My kind of thing.

Please. He was hugging them
to keep me away from them.

OK. I think he's changing.

I saw it first.

That's how it works.

He who sees it,

bagsies it. Thanks, mate.

Great, one-all, then.

So Henry has picked
the pair of polished palm trees.

More sheddage.

But there's still
one more item each to find.

Nice rivets over there.

Ooh.

Oh, wow. I smell things.

Yeah. Oh, yeah, man.

Now. We see these...

I always pass them by.

Simon's found some old glass bricks.
First developed in the early 1900s

to provide natural light
in manufacturing plants,

they became popular in the 1950s
in new-build homes and offices.

They're structural
but at the same time

they let the light come through.

Yeah, I kind of think they're cool.

Why don't you be creative?
Cos you're in the zone, mate,

with your organ today. All right.

Why don't you create something?

Do you know what? You don't
have to tell me or think.

No, no, I'm just going to
take them cos I like them.

Is that your second item?
That's my second item.

I've never seen a good enough
collection but there's enough

there for me to have
a real play with.

Do us a favour,
just pop back in the box for us.

Oh, careful. I've got two items.

Just gonna...

...take a seat, rest on my laurels.
Oh, don't be like that.

Just cos you've come good quicker.

It's quite comfortable.

Might take this for a spin
while you're floundering.

What's that?
A trolley of some description.

Hey, Si, check this out.

What the heck is that?

That is a brass barber's basin
for washing customers' hair in

and this ornate example
is probably 100 years old

and originated on the Continent.

I could just imagine the Parisian
coming in.

"Bonjour, monsieur, bonjour.

"Avez vous de haircut,
s'il vous plait?"

Just polish that up,
paint the base,

don't you think that's beautiful?

It is. If you think
of all those trendy kind of

fashionable barber shops.
Fashionistas like me.

No, absolutely
the antithesis of you.

But you see, because I could

restore it with that aspiration,
I might be the perfect person to go

to one of those hipster barbers
and say,

"You've got to have one of these."

When am I ever going to see
another one of them?

I don't know.

Lovely item. And I think, actually,
really the right item for Henry.

Cos he does need his hair washing
and he has the hair to be washed.

Two-all, mate. Two-all. Let's go and
see Clare. Let's go and see Clare.

We love Clare's places.

We do love Clare's place.
Wonder if she's got any more.

But will Clare love
the boys' four picks?

Clare, am I right in saying
those are palm trees, or were?

Yes, that's right. OK. All right.

See, I think they'd be
really cool lamps.

But if it's OK to take those,
I think they're really cool.

Now, talking about crazy items, I've
never seen one of those before.

Now, am I right in saying
it's for douching le cheval?

That'll be cheveux, Henry.

Cheval is a horse.

Those are my two items,
if that's OK.

Brill. Let's start with
the safe item. OK.

These lovely glass blocks.

If it's OK, I'm going to take them
away and give them a couple of coats

of looking at. Cool.

Now, organ pipes.
I think they're a fabulous thing.

You don't come across them
every day.

OK to take them? Yes, for sure.

Keep collecting the stuff.

Cheers, Clare. Thank you so much.

Coming up, Gemma's unsure...

Old organ pipes.

What was he thinking? What am I
going to do with them?

...Henry's lying down...

I don't do have to do any work.

Look - no hands!

...and Simon's dancing...

...I think.

Thank you.
Oh, I went all light-headed.

Henry Cole and Simon O'Brien
have each found two items

at Claire and Richard Walton's.
I am very, very, very excited.

Now they're heading back
to fix them and flog them.

In Liverpool, Simon is showing
his haul to upcycling partner

Gemma Longworth. First up,

the glass blocks.

What I'm thinking is, what if...

we were...

to drill through the bottom.

Uh-huh. And put in,
you know the rope lights?

Yeah? And use them as lamps?

Yeah, that... that's a nice idea.

OK. OK. Yeah. So that's that.

Love them. Now then,
what do you think of these?

What do you reckon?

Off an organ?
That's exactly what they are.

I never know what
Simon's going to bring back.

And this is a great example
of it. Old organ pipes.

What was he thinking?
What are we going to do with them?

If you imagine all the pipes
in a row like that... Yeah.

We cut them in half at the angle.

And we make a big bench that gets,
kind of, gets smaller and smaller

and smaller and tapers away,
both on the back and on the front.

That's a nice idea.
A musical bench.

We could try and get them to
play us a chord, yeah!

Well, before any
music will be played,

Gemma needs to tackle
the glass blocks.

I need to get started
on cleaning these.

Wonder how easy this
is going to be to come off.

Don't want to break them.

We haven't got many.

As the blocks were used
in construction,

Gemma has the delicate task
of chipping off the old cement.

That was an easy one!

With the cement removed, she gives
them a once-over with soap and water

before passing the next stage
of the job onto handyman Phil.

You can actually see
through them now.

Hi, Phil! Hello. Right.

I've got these glass blocks
that Simon's brought us back.

We need you to drill through them. OK.

I mean, is that possible?

Erm...

Not sure. Something's telling me...

...that I don't I think
I might be able to. Will they break?

They may do.

Using some soft putty,
Phil fashions

a little pool of white spirit

which will aid in the drilling
process through the glass,

hopefully protecting it
from breaking.

Oh, there you go! Yes!

I was convinced
that was going to go.

Brilliant.

There we go.

On the other side of the workshop,
Simon is working on his plans

for the organ bench.

BANG!
Ooh!

First thing he has to do is
count them to see exactly

how his plan will fare.

So, we've laid all the organ
pipes out in a row.

We worked out the ones that are
the best wood to use for the back.

So that gives you
the size of the bench.

Then we've mixed and matched the big
ones to make the base of the bench

which leaves us with the little
tiny ones to make the arms.

We have a plan.

Down south in Oxfordshire,

Henry is with his restoration
buddy Guy Willison, deciding

on their plan of action.

What would you imagine those to be?

A lamp. Yeah. Standard lamp.

The key to the financial return
on these puppies... Mm?

...is the shades.

Yeah, I think
they need to be quite big. Cool.

Now for something
completely different. OK.

Next stop, the continental
vintage hair-washing basin.

We'll paint the base a nice black.
You think black? OK.

That's going to be for
a beard emporium, isn't it?

A hipster kinda hairdresser
type club,

type quinoa-eating place,
you know what I mean?

Selling this is going to take
all of Guy's buffering skills

to reveal what's under
the weathered surface.

What I'm doing here is
I'm actually going very gently

because I quite like this nickel
here and the base metal showing,

and I quite like that patina.

So this is quite a gentle mop.

So I'm just going to go with this
all over and then see how it looks.

Onto the palm tree stumps,

which will become the basis
of some standard lamps.

Henry has had tops made,
so all Guy has to do is wire them up

by feeding the flex through
the metal shaft of the lamp.

I'm bored now.

Yes, you're not the only one, mate!

I tell you what... I can't even see!
How near the end is that?

And in typical Henry fashion...

We've still got to deal
with that one. Yeah, whatever.

Perhaps Henry will be able
to do better.

You'll get there in a minute.
Just stay calm. Persevere.

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

See. I'll give you this job to do

every time we're doing a lamp
from now on.

In Liverpool, Simon is working
on a slightly different-looking lamp

using his glass blocks.

He's watered down some white
emulsion and planned on

letting it dry on
the inside of them...

So, this is our guinea pig, basically.

...giving the lights
a nice, diffused look.

Time for Simon to get twisting.

Simon's hoping that the watered-down
paint will give an even coverage

inside the glass.
Oh, thank you. Thank you!

OK? I went all light-headed.

And it's... done. I think.

Wired in there...

That is...

the worst thing I have ever done.

That's just...

rubbish.

Chin up, Simon.

Perhaps your plans for the church
organ bench will work out better.

Helped by Phil, Simon cuts
the larger pipes to size and starts

to piece the puzzle together.

Just a bit of a crazy thing.

And the entire thing will be
built purely of organ pipes.

Won't it, mate?

Yes. Simon and Phil are making
the bench entirely out of the wood

from the organ. Right.

There you go! Made a vase as well.

We're going to drill them all
into the back and to each other

because we don't want to see
any screw heads at all.

After hours of sawing,
screwing, and glueing,

it's time to stand
this organ bench upright.

Oh, yes.

So, with some ingenuity
and teamwork,

the organ is now transformed
into a bench.

That's all right, that.

In Oxfordshire, the lads are busy
with woodwork, too -

the palm tree stumps, which,
hopefully, will look like lamps

faster than Henry can beat a drum.

Come on!

A dollop of glue to help
hold the top in place.

I've got it, I've got it!
Get your hand in.

I've got it. Pull!

Cool. OK.
So, now we've got the flex in,

I'll just check, can I do this?

OK. Well, I think that's great.

Good. Then we'll put the shades on

which are basically
a pair of UFOs.

One, two, three.

Happy days.

Those are the biggest lamps
I think I've ever seen in my life.

They are a statement piece,
aren't they?

A statement piece.

That's a great way of
describing them, I think, mate.

Lamps done, and,
having painted the legs black,

Guy's doing the fiddly job of
detailing the lettering

to match the basin.

Oh, my God, that's beautiful!

Check it out!

This is... Do you know what,
it's lovely isn't it?

Have you done the other side yet?
No, I've got to do that.

Do that. Best of luck. That's great.
I'll just be over here.

Yeah. Just give me a little while.

Yeah. Don't hassle me.

I'll just be here. OK.

Hm. Not like Henry to chill out
whilst Guy does all the work.

Look! No hands! Hey!

Hurry up, kid.

But it's time for an end to idling
as the boys hit the road again,

this time to
Henry's choice of location

on the edge of the New Forest.

They're visiting the vintage car
workshop of Richard Skinner,

who specialises in Edwardian cars.

And so passionate is Richard,

he won't touch a car
built after 1927.

I restore vintage cars,
predominately Model T Fords.

So just get people's cars
up together running nicely

so they can enjoy them.

He's been tinkering with machines
since he was 11.

But along the way he's accumulated
more than a little clutter.

There were a few sheds full of junk
and all sorts of stuff.

I'm not really sure what's in there,

so I thought it would be great
to get the pros to have a look

and see what they can find.

And old pros Henry and Simon
can't wait to get stuck in.

I think I've got a treat
for you, son.

Come on.

Now... No, really.

When you say that,
it means it's not a treat for me.

Richard!

Henry, how are you?

Simon, great to see you.

I've assured him, Richard, that
today is going to be great.

So, if we do make you any money,
what'll it go towards?

I think I'll probably treat
my wife's horses

to a couple of bales
of extra haylage.

Oh, that's lovely.
Hopefully we can run to that.

Well, I'm chomping at the bit,
so let's go. Oh, don't be like that.

See you later, mate.

Gallop off, then, boys, as you need
to find two items each. First shed.

OK. First treat coming up, mate!

No horse but lots of horsepower
bits. Yeah, go on, look. Wow.

In the first shed,

Model T Ford manifolds,
Model T Ford wheels.

Really interesting, little,
rummage-around shed, that one.

This shed's wheely, wheely good.
I'm loving it. Isn't it?

Look at them all.

I love these old sprung seats.

What could I do with them?

Well... little mattress?

HE LAUGHS

You have the imagination of a flea,
you know that?

Hang on. What?

These are nice, talking about seats.

These are lovely. Oh, yes, please.

Eh? Look at that.

Ooh, there's a pair.

Those two seats.

Does anyone else like magnolia?

What era are they saying to you?

Sort of perhaps '80s? Yeah.

Yeah. Yeah! Kind of.

So there's two of them. Yeah.

I'm going to have those. What?
I think they're rather nice.

Can I have those, my first items?
Absolutely. I love them.

1-0.

Love it.

The leather seats came
from an AC Cobra,

a classic British sports car
built since 1962.

OK. This is the stuff.

Here we go.

What have we got here?

He said we could have anything.
Exhaust manifold.

Oh, my word. What's that?
An accordion?

Like that, bit of Chas & Dave?
Yeah? Know what I mean?

OK, see if it works.

Now if you imagine them kind of
mounted on a nice piece of hardwood

on the wall... Yeah.

Shelves.

Many T Fords had no roof

so extra luggage had to be
stored on the running boards

using these racks.

I just like them. I don't know
what I'm going to do with them.

But they're brilliant.

So therefore they're coming with me.

Just hold that for a sec, son.
OK. Cheers.

Hey, look, we got our first
two items in one shed

but plenty more to look at.

Come on, come on.

Ooh, look at those. Come on.

I want to have a look-see.

Hang on.

I walked straight past... Uh-huh!

Wheel.

Model T Ford wheel.

Seen slightly better days.

I wouldn't run a bike
or a car on one of them. A-ha!

What?

Perfect. What?

Got 12 spokes.

So that means... Yeah?

...it can be a Model T clock.

12 spokes, 12 numbers.

Clock. Brilliant.

Oh, OK. Think about it.

Here. I'll just remove the ladle.

You can put it on the wall.

Here's 12. All the way round.

Fingers on there.
Yeah. I can see it.

Wooden T Ford wheels
were derived from gun carriages

and were used on the cars from 1908

until steel ones
were introduced in 1926.

Yeah. There you go. Lovely.
That's good. It is good.

I've got both my items. I can now
just enjoy this beautiful environ

whilst you panic.

Casually walk off.

I might be able to do a table
with that engine... Oh, no.

Picking the wheel clock
means Simon's finished.

So, time to get a move on, Henry.

So, where are we going now, Henry?
I don't care.

I will just casually
wander around with you.

Oh, cool. Another shed.
Another Model T, hey?

Hey, Si.

I know we get introduced a lot
to your fans

but that's your biggest fan.

Hey-hey, very good! That's what
you need, this commode here.

Something that's sitting on
the commode, thank you.

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

Nice lamp. Nice speaker.
Nice something.

Not specifically off a T Ford,
this general-purpose car horn

would have had a rubberised bulb
to squeeze to produce its honk.

That thing when it's polished up
in itself is lovely

and can't be left
in a shed for no-one to see.

Well, it's got the mount.

So you're on for something,
aren't you? Yeah.

It is, isn't it? That's cool.

Once again,
Henry has got a good find.

I can even have it like that.

Second item.
Let's go and see Richard.

Idiot.

But will Richard be parted
with his car parts?

No, you should go first.
OK, I'll go first.

I'm going to take that old
Model T Ford wheel. Yeah?

And I'm going to
make a Model T Ford clock.

That sounds fantastic.

I like that.

Now, my other item -

I just love them, I love
the concertina effect of them.

So whilst I carry on
looking at it and thinking

what I'm going to do,
over to you, Henry.

That's how you dream
and think and contemplate.

Richard, now, look.
I'm going to take those two seats.

Wonderful. Yeah. Now we've got
ourselves a horn there. We have.

That's called a Rubes horn.

But if it's OK I'll take it away.
Super. Absolute pleasure.

Thank you very much indeed.
It has been a pleasure.

Richard, thank you so much.
Great to meet you, guys.

Coming up,
the clock is ticking for Simon.

It was a really delicate job.

But I just took my time.

Guy's amazed at Henry's plan
for the horn.

You are mad.

Yeah, but I bet you
no-one's ever done that before.

And Elisicia says it as she sees it
at the valuation.

These put me in a bad mood,
these lights. Oh, no.

Henry Cole and Simon O'Brien

are rummaging
for refuse to turn into cash.

I'm going to have those. What?

After today's second search,
they have two new items each

from Model T Ford restorer
Richard Skinner's place.

Henry is now back at his base
in Oxfordshire

revealing his latest haul to Guy.

There are probably three things
you could do with that.

Go on. The first is a lamp.

Yes. The second is a speaker. Possibly.

The third... Come on.

Polish it up, make it nice.
Yes, lovely.

CCTV for a man cave. On the inside?
A little camera in there.

Oh, that'd be lovely.
What? You like it?

Yeah, because what else
are you going to do with that?

You are mad.

Yeah, but I bet you no-one's
ever done that before.

Next the seats from
the AC Cobra classic car.

Now, second item... Yes.

This is what I want to do
with them. Ready for this? Yeah.

I'm going to pick this up,
I'm going to put it over here

because I want
to demonstrate to you...

Yeah, close together.

Yes, that's nice.

Now sit yourself down. OK.

Then... Ooh, they're comfy! Yeah.

All right, so we make a frame,

like two kids to sit in,
in a sports car. Yes, right.

So they can then drive and play
on their computer games like that.

HENRY IMITATES CAR ENGINE
Yeah, bit of that.

I'll do the map reading.

Yeah. These are lovely.
I think that's good.

Wasting no time,

Henry orders a custom-made frame
to be built for the seats to sit on.

They will be made
to exact measurements

and will receive
a cool black paint job too.

At the workshop, Guy has been busy

polishing up the brass horn
from a Model T Ford

and Henry's about to show Guy

his nifty little
Wi-Fi enabled spy camera

he's bought off the internet.

I think we put a bit of Velcro,

brass bar that's
narrower than the camera...

Yeah. ..and then the top sort
of bent down at a slight angle

and, because brass is pliable,

we can just insert that in
and it'll stay

and if it doesn't stay like that,

we'll put some Velcro
on the tabs as well.

So it's back in the shed and
Guy's fashioning a piece of brass

which will sit inside the horn,

to which he will fasten the camera
with a piece of Velcro.

That's that fitted.
Let's go and show him.

In Liverpool, Simon is
revealing his items to Gemma.

What are they?

These are luggage racks

off old Model T Ford cars
and vintage cars.

Here's what I'm thinking. How about

if we got some really nice pieces
of wood to clamp them to? Yeah.

What about...
a set of shelves, you know,

for like hanging kitchen stuff,
pans and that kind of stuff?

Great, yeah, like them.

So I got I've got three of them.

They're all slightly different
and I like that. OK.

Right? Yeah. Easy. Bingo! OK.

So, Model T Ford wheel. Yeah.

What I like about this one is...

A clock! Bingo!

Yes, that's going to look great. Yeah.

Kind of nice, simple thinking, I
think, on these, just easy enough.

Yeah? Yeah, love them.

There you go.
It's all right, isn't it? Yeah.

With a little bit of TLC,
it's going to look great.

And Gemma knows just the man -

handyman Phil gets straight on with
polishing the wheel's brass hub

before Simon gets in on the action

with a paintbrush
and some black metal paint.

In the words of the man Henry Ford,

you can have any colour you like,
as long as it's black.

As the wheel is to become
a domestic clock,

Simon thinks a coat of paint on
the wheel rim will add to the look.

As well as the spokes,

we've got this beautiful brass hub,

which I'm wilfully going to

drill a hole in, but I have to say

Phil, as always, has done

a great job polishing that up.

And a few more minutes
with a paint brush

and this stage of
the process is done.

I'm going to leave that to dry

and work out how to
make it into a clock.

Next up, the luggage racks,

and Simon starts by building
an oak frame to fit them to.

Roughly speaking,
they attach to that,

that goes on the wall,

and then the luggage rack
mounts on these.

Plane them, sand them, wax them.

Beautiful!

Back in Oxfordshire, the custom-made
frame for the classic AC Cobra seats

has been delivered.

Yes.

Looks very good.
I think it's going to be great.

All they have to do
is bolt it all together.

Why am I one nut short?
I don't know.

That's good.

Beautiful, tuck him in, nice, nice.

Bowled over by the progress
of the leather seats,

Henry wants to see if
he'll have as much luck

with the Wi-Fi enabled spy cam.

OK. Go on, then.

Right, now point it there.
Yeah. Come on.

Hey-hey-hey!
That is a good picture!

Look at that!

That, mate... It's fantastic!

...is a fantastic item
for your man cave. Yeah.

Good job done, son. OK. Come on,
then. Let's video you in the bath.

In Liverpool, Simon
is making his wheel clock tick

with a mechanism from a cheap
alarm clock plus a couple of straws.

I've got an old movement...

Well, a new movement
out of just a cheap clock.

But, of course,
the Model T Ford wheel

is much deeper than
your average clock face.

To finish his time piece,
he needs to add the fingers.

It was a really delicate job,
but I just took my time.

Next he mixes
some epoxy resin glue

to attach the clock to the wheel.

So now we just leave that to set

and that's done.

The luggage rack is also
getting a seeing to.

Phil is planing and sanding
the oak pieces Simon has cut to size

that will eventually
hold the racks to the wall.

All done.

Gemma has cracked out
the black spray paint

and is giving these rusty old racks
a new lease of life.

In Oxfordshire,
Henry's turned his attention

back to today's first set of items.

They are a statement piece,
aren't they?

He has just the hipster in mind
for the vintage hair basin

at a trendy local barbers.

How are you doing, mate?
Now, look, right...

This, mate,
is something quite funky.

A bit different from
my basin back there, I think.

I just thought,
in a shop like yours,

it might look well trendy.
Very nice.

OK. 150 quid, mate.

That's a bit steep.

100 quid.

Can't do 100, mate,

but I would take a bid.

I mean, you know, a realistic one.

I'll go up a bit more. Do...

...125.

Go on, son.

Thank you. Very good.

But has he made
Claire and Richard good money?

We'll find out at the valuation.

In Liverpool, it's also time to
finish one of their first items -

the organ bench.

Now, with the valuation looming,
the arm rests have been attached

and Gemma is giving it
a once-over with some Danish oil.

She also has a surprise
in store for Simon.

Got a present for you.
Oh-ho! Let's see!

There we go.

I would say that's music to my ears,
Gemma, but it's music to my eyes.

It's gorgeous. It works,
doesn't it? It really does.

Let's see.

And it's comfortable, as well.
Genius idea, Simon.

Well, thank you very much.

Back inside and it's on to
plan B with the glass blocks.

This is... last chance motel...

...or I have to accept defeat.

Please. Please.

This time Simon is spray painting
the outside of the glass blocks,

hopefully giving the diffused look
he was after in the first place.

Once dry, he can insert
the multicoloured LCD lights

and give it a go.

There.

OK.

That...

They're looking cool.

OK, Phil, hit the lights!

What do you think?
Did I get out of jail? Just about.

Did I rescue it?
Well done, sir. Phew!

See, the lights are on
and there is someone home!

Success!

But what will it be worth?

Claire wanted a good clear-out
of dad Richard's workshop

and hoped to raise some money
towards a new van.

Now they're back to see how
the four items turned out

and to see if the boys
have made them any cash.

Hello, hello.

Hi, Claire, welcome back!
Hi, Richard! Hi!

Lovely to see you.
Richard, great to see you.

Have a look, see what you think.

Wow! Look at them!

CLAIRE: That looks great.
Hey, take a seat.

Go on, take a seat. Yeah.

A chair only works if you can
sit in it. It's good, isn't it?

You could play a tune on there.
Gin and tonics?

Yeah!

And there's all the other stuff.
That's ace!

What do you mean?! There's all those
beautifully restored things,

two of which are mine.
There you go.

Anyway, come back and join us
now you've had a look.

What do you think? Brilliant!

Fantastic. Crazy, isn't it?

I think they are absolutely
beautiful. That's what we think.

Yeah. Yes.
But have we made you any money?

You know how this works.

Time to be joined by
our independent valuer, Elisicia.

Hello, Elisicia. How are you?
Hello.

Elisicia Moore runs a London
furniture shop

specialising in upcycled homeware,

so she can accurately value
the boys' handiwork.

OK, Elisicia, can we start
with my little coiffure-y bowl?

I think you did the right
thing by removing the plate.

And what a nice surprise
it was brass underneath.

Bingo. That's lovely.

The neglected barber's basin was
brought back to life for nothing,

as the paint was from leftovers and
Guy's elbow grease came for free.

Barber shops are popping up left,
right and centre, it's a real trend,

so I don't think there'd be
any problem selling this. £130.

Well, sorry, yeah,

well, I have flogged it for 125,

so I'll throw in a fiver,
let's call it 130.

Yeah, let's go with the valuation.

So, Henry's addition of a fiver
means the basin makes a £130 profit.

So, now my palm trees.
A lot of work went into these.

Yeah, absolutely. As always!

The apparently useless
palm tree stumps

are now attractive lamps
for just £100 worth of lampshades,

metal work and electrical wiring.

Lampshades, they can cost hundreds,
just the shade alone,

and then the base is
completely one of a kind.

Looks fantastic.

I think £400 for the lot.

Wow! That was worth
the hard work, then.

He may be dumbfounded
but that's a whopping £300 profit

made from the two
old palm tree stumps.

Let's start with my beautiful

individually remote-controlled
glass block lights.

You'll have to keep selling it to me

because they're putting me
in a bad mood, these lights. Oh, no!

£50 was spent on LED lighting kits
to illuminate

the architectural glass blocks
into domestic mood lighting.

£20 each. £20?!

And no more. And no more? No more.

£20. I'm being generous.

Come on! I'm being generous.
Light up my life. I'll go lower.

If I get a remote control
for her and just keep...

She's emotionally
being a chameleon now.

Simon may be disappointed
but there's still a profit

of £10 per light.

Let's talk about the organ bench.

So you redeemed yourself.

Thank you. Well done.

The unwanted organ pipes are now
a fabulous and totally unique bench,

and all for just £30 spent on
screws, glue and fabrics.

It's extraordinary.

I LOVE it.

A lot of skill, a lot of time
and it looks beautiful.

£400. £400? Yeah. OK.

I have actually sold it...

...for £350.

Despite selling
it under the valuation,

Simon has still pulled in
a tuneful profit of £320.

All in all,
with this very eclectic mix,

which I think sums us up perfectly,

you are going home today
with £800. How about that?

Brilliant, brilliant.
Absolute pleasure.

Hopefully it was worth
coming back, then.

Claire, what's the money going
towards? Hopefully a holiday.

THEY CHEER

So, that's an £800 profit.

But it looks like the new van
will have to wait

until after Claire's new holiday.

Henry and Simon have done it again.
Everything looks great.

It looks really, really good.

Just such a pleasure, it gives me
great satisfaction to see it.

Coming up, Henry and Guy
take a well-earned break...

That's OK. I'm loving it.

...Simon and Gemma
admire their handiwork...

They are really good, actually.

...and there's commendation
at the valuation.

You've done a fantastic
job of restoring it.

It looks really good.

Henry Cole and Simon O'Brien
are searching barns for things

they can fix up and sell for profit.

Give me some of that.

Simon's choice of location
made £800 for Richard and Claire.

How about that? Brilliant.

So the pressure is on for Henry
to see if he can top that total.

That's magic.

In Oxfordshire,
Henry is finishing off the finds

from the vintage motor enthusiast
Richard Skinner's place.

He's finished the spy cam horn.

Hey, hey, hey!

That is a good picture.

Now he needs to finish
the AC Cobra seats.

After bolting the seats
to the bespoke base...

Beautiful. Tuck 'em in. Nice, nice.

...it's Henry's favourite bit.

Buffing.

I think the best thing to do here
is just do this.

Hang on, keep some for me,

because that looks like it's better
than this. 'Course it is.

That's why I chose it.

Just work it in, Guy, work it in.

It's rejuvenating beautifully.

I'd like to believe we could
just sit... Yeah, come on, then.

That's OK.

I'm loving it.

Over in Liverpool, Simon is also
finishing off the items

picked from Richard's place.

After Simon put the elements of
the clock together,

Gemma painted the rack
and Phil sanded the wood.

Now all the items
have been assembled.

Let's put this one on the wall.

They're really good, actually.

Oh, and look what's above us!

The clock!
And that's brilliant too.

Thanks, Gem. It really is good.

I'm pleased.

These are good to go.

They are indeed.

And Simon thinks he's lined up
a potential buyer -

art student Ali.

Hi, Ali. Hiya, Simon.

How's it going? Good to see you.
Very good. You OK?

Here you go. Da-da!

Love them.
They're absolutely fantastic.

I love them. Brilliant.

Yeah, great. It's a set of three.

I'm going to have them all.
They're ace.

Thank you. Deal is done. Cheers.

Right, I'll give you a hand out. Great.

But did he make as much
as the valuer will estimate?

Well, it's time to find out
at the final valuation.

Richard Skinner is back
to find out what they've done

with his old car parts

and how much cash
the boys have made for him.

Come and join us. How are you, mate?
Good to see you, Simon.

Hi. How do you do?
I love your braces, mate.

They're fantastic.

Well, hopefully you like our stuff!

Have a look around. Gosh!

Go and have a wander, mate.

Oh, yeah. I'm absolutely...

I didn't know what to expect at all.

That's what it is. Have a good look
at the horn, Richard,

there, up on the wall -
have a really good look in there.

So what have we got in there?

Keep looking in there, mate.

That's good.

Oh, that's... I do like your braces.
That is superb, isn't it?

There you go. Yeah. Gosh.
Hey, come on over.

I didn't know what to expect from
those. That's incredible.

Yeah. Super.

Richard, I'm so thrilled
that you love everything,

but have we made you any money?

So to that end, here's Elisicia,
who's our independent valuer.

Elisicia Moore is back to value
the boys' latest creations.

Be nice.

Come on, then,
why don't we start with...

Let's start with the clock,
shall we? Yeah. OK.

You've done a fantastic job
of restoring it.

It looks really good.

The neglected wheel is now
a unique T Ford clock,

for just £10,

the cost of a clock mechanism.

The winning element is just
how lovely you've restored it.

For a fast sale, I'd say £120.

Oh! That's great.

So a very timely profit of £110.

Which next?
Well, let's start with,

let's go with my second one,
my luggage rack shelves.

Yes.

We started on a high note.

We're going to go down
a wee bit here.

I think you had your work
cut out for you.

I think this was a difficult one.

The discarded racks are now
attractive kitchen shelves

for just £15 worth
of brackets and paints.

I would say £100 for the lot.

£100.

Well, Richard, I've got good news
and bad news.

Yes.

The good news is I've sold them...
Mm-hmm?

But not for £100 - for £90.

OK. But is that OK? That's good.

So all in all,
profit to you, 75 quid.

Well done. Brilliant. Bingo.

The sale brings in a further £75

for Richard's old Model T Ford
luggage racks.

Price for the horn.

I think it's great.
You said for a man cave.

I'd quite happily put this
in my lounge, hallway, kitchen.

I think it's fantastic.

The Wi-Fi security camera cost
only £15 from an auction website.

I could easily get £60 for this.

Mmm-hmm?

OK...

The only reason
I'm being like that -

thank you for the valuation -
is that 15 quid for the camera,

but I've sold it for 55.

Formerly bound for the bin,

the old horn has sounded

a profit of £40 for Richard.

Now, the gaming chairs. Yeah.

I could see little kids, big kids,
queuing up to use this.

SHE LAUGHS Yes.

Destined for the dump,
the AC Cobra seats

have had a new lease of life

with just £50 spent on
the steel pipe structure.

It's a good job. It's brilliant.
Thank you.

I would say £200.

Wow, OK.

That's a sporty little profit
of £150.

So that means in total, Richard,

after all our costs,
you'll be taking home £375.

Fab. Yeah, that's really good,
you've made me very happy.

You know what? We had an absolutely
fabulous time at your place.

That's £375 raised
for Richard's wife's horses.

Money he had no idea was
lying around in his workshop.

I think Henry and Simon
have done a superb job.

Great imagination,
wonderful upcycling on those parts

that really I didn't even know
were there.

So... brilliant.

But it was the items from the barns
of Claire and her father Richard

that raised the most cash today.

And as it was Simon's idea
to go there,

he's today's winner.

CONTENTED SIGH

I knew it was worth going back
there. Well, it was.

I do understand that and I do agree.

But...375 played what?

800. It was worth it for me,
at least.

That's over double, you know.

Well done. I'm offski.

I'm just going to sit here
and bask in my glory.
