Got a bit more accomplished this morning. Here's that painted tire I want to clean up:

And here it is after a half hour of scrubbing with the MEK:

I went ahead and sanded the wheels and got some paint on them. They are basking in the sun drying:

Thought I would make a new hitch pin for it:

It will be after the first when I can get more gas for the welder. The frame is just tack welded, so lots of work there before I can paint it. The sky is falling intermittently here also, so painting the back wheels is out for a day or two.

Well, so much for rain! Got enough top make the grass wet. Went out and pulled the back wheels. They are all painted up now.

That sounds like a two headed sword. It's good it was dry enough to paint but I suspect you all could use the rain.

It didn't take but an hour to do those two wheels. They could have waited. Rain would be a blessing around here. The cracks just keep getting bigger.

Still waiting for argon to weld. Hopefully by next weekend. But here's a couple update pics. Cut some pieces for side boards to fit into yesterday. Last pic gives an idea of how they will be attached. There will be 3 front/back, 4 on the sides. The side boards will not be full, rather just stringers for holding things in. When I go to make them, I will show what I envision.

Funds for that got moved. All the high temps made for higher electric bill, thus less GT money. I'll get some soon. Got the Ford cart to finish too.

Looks like you are going all out on the wagon. The side boards will make it a lot easier to secure stuff.

I keep looking for smaller hay bales to put on it. The side and end boards will be a help, depending on what is hauled. Long stuff, take out the rear first and front if needed. Wide, remove side boards. It will be a good little wagon and it will find it's uses. The top of the side/end boards will be less than 4' off the ground, so easy to load.
