Ryan, Do you happen to have a couple sheets of Insul-board that you can make a 4'X4' box and put a small portable heater in? It wouldn't take much heat in a box like that to dry them and you wouldn't have to heat the garage.

No I don't, but that is a great idea! I will check with Neighbor Herby, he might have something like that.

Herby wasn't home, so I decided to just stick them into the shed with a propane heater. I hung them with a piece of wire from a length of square tubing that I put across the width of the shed. The heater had no problem heating the shed up. After 4 hours in the shed I figured the smell would be gone enough that I could put them in the basement to conserve propane. Tomorrow I will put them back in the shed and give them another coat.

 

Before you guys tan my hide, all of those gas cans have been empty for years (and I double checked to be sure. I also took all of the oil based paint out.

I have 4 coats of paint on the wheels now, and I don't think they will need another. I will give the paint a couple days to harden up by the Woodstove and mount the tires. The original tires where 6.00-16 but all I have is a set of 8.00-16 off of a power king. I wonder if I should buy a set of the original size to put on it? What do you guys think?
