Started another project as if I don't already have enough irons in the fire! This is a father/daughter project. Been wanting to build a custom low rider radio flyer for a while now. Well, finally got all the stuff I need. My mom brought me a wagon she had back around Thanksgiving. Picked up some square tubing and some thick sheet metal this past weekend while back home. Only thing missing was the front suspension. Bought a prefabbed kit off ebay. So today, Madison and myself got the wagon stripped down to just the tub. Went back out after dinner and cut 80% of the tubing cut for the chassis. Just need to hit the welding supply for some gas, and wait for the front suspension to show up.
Before tear down:
Torn down and mocked up at "ride height":
Chassis laid out and ready to be welded:
Rear axle ready to be welded:
Plans are to leave the paint alone for now, leave the frame in bare steel (for a short while). May get the frame powder coated later one. Not sure if I will paint the body later on, time will tell. Going to cut a piece of wood to sit down inside, covered in a diamond'd leopard micro fiber, with red leather buttons. Should be a pretty quick and easy build once I get my gas.
