Not a car, but oh well!

Post by austin26372 on July 16th 2011, 7:55 pm

In order to keep myself out of trouble I've decided to take on a mini project - refreshing my vintage Radio Flyer Town & Country garden cart.

First thing's first, remove the paint. Note that I am using a chemical stripper to remove the single layer of paint.

Before's:

Disassembly was straight forward; a mere 4 bolts were removed. All removed hardware will be polished, as well as the wheels & axle.

Stripping the paint is stupid easy. As of this post, all of the exterior has had its first session with the stripper. The inside has yet to be touched. The "rust" will be wire brushed, then hit with a rust reformer.

A fun project. You need to really doll that thing up with flames and fancy wheels. I've seen them with lowrider bike wheels and tires on them. Of course.....................then you have to do the lawn tractor to match. lol!

Cool project! This sticker on makes me guess that that thing was manufactured in the '80s. Maybe the '70s.

Gotta love "Semi-Pneumatic Tires!" I think I've had a few of those on some of the cars I've owned...
