    Finally finished the wagon after having to get a new computer and rewire some wiring in the attic.

    Martinius,

    No sand blasting just sanding disc, blocks and steel wool and repaint sand repaint on so on. Looks like I'm going to have to start getting some of the wagons sold have way to many. Sooner or later I'll get rid it.

    Thanks Nate,
    This one was fun doing, have a bunch more to tinker with, going to finish the one with the go-cart style frame now. Thinking of doing it a in Oliver green, yellow, and red. Just got in an 1920's Greyhound aluminum one which is going to need major tig welding surgery and tweaking of the sides and tub. Should have file a claim on ebay but I think I want to see if it can be saved, guy did not state the bed had rips in it.

    I would hate to hit the brakes hard and slide forward in the seat. It's getting hot in here!

    Naw, those are for a much younger person than me. I just need my truck and a tag along wagon. But that would one heck of a lot of fun not only to ride but built.
    Thanks ,

    Thanks Paul,
    The wagons are fun to mess with, it is about time I start getting some sold.
    This mania is starting to become or look like a hording issue.

    Another distraction~

    So my principal asked if I would be interested in installing a "Free Little Library". The idea sounded perfect for our yard, this community, as soon as I heard how it worked. I also knew immediately that my wife would be jazzed about a new landscaping project. Anyhow, if your ever in Pittsburg, stop by and get a good book. ;)
    The other is a painting I'm working on just for the heck of it. Thought you might enjoy? :rolleyes:

    Very cool project, Paul! What a neat idea. I also like the painting, but I gotta ask.... what's the meaning of the toilets hanging in the tree? Something tells me there's a story here.... :D
