Finished my 'wheelbarrow' rebuild Friday. A total redo that included the sandblast of all metal components, a new front solid tire, new wood, and a 'rattle can' paint job . . . And, all new nuts, bolts, and washers and exclusive JD logo stickers.
The old, I've had this wheelbarrow so long I'm not sure when I bought it. I think it was shortly after moving into this place in September of 1977. . . Hmm, forty years.
And the rebuild . . .
I realize the 'paint job' will only last till I use it the first time, but it will be in the shop when not in use and that should help it last. I won't be around, but someone else will enjoy it after me.
