That looks awesome, Will! Great job on it!



Thanks Kenny. I keep forgetting to answer yor ? about the tire shine.
I spray them with 303. Like armorall. just spray it on and leave it.
The tires on the 7E where very grey, and crusty looking. 4 or 5 doses of that stuff made a huge difference.

Okay, what is 303? I won't use armorall, had bad experience with it years ago. Guess just about any 'tire shine' would work. Thanks.

This stuff. We've been using it for years on boat upholstry.
I know Miller tire sells it.

Looks like some neat stuff. Never saw it before.

Found a place that sells it 5 miles away.

Give it a try. I scrubbed them a bit with a coarse brush and soapy water, and let them dry first.

I think I should build an Exec garden trailer, like in the picture.
That just looks like a wheelbarrow, backwards, with a "T" frame under it.
I've got a couple of nice wide wheels to use, and all the steel I need. Just no old wheelbarrow tub.
Not much point in going to the effort, and putting a rusty old tub on it.

I'm gonna call all the hardware stores in town and get them to dig out they're WBs, and measure them.
That should keep them warm for a bit.:bigrofl:

Will, if you were closer, I'd give you one. I have three. Be sure to document the build well. I have thought of making one myself since I have the tubs.

A couple years ago I bought a new replacement steel wheelbarrow tub for 20 bucks at Menards. Sales person said they sell a lot of them.

Beautiful work!

Went to all the hardware stores in town yesterday. Nothing that really looks right, and alot of plastic stuff.
A few places have all that stuff packed away, and being it was snowing like crazy, they weren't to excited about taking
me out to the storage shed to look at them. I guess this project is going to have to wait till the season gets closer.
