I just finished restoring this old Speedaway sled. I made all new wooden parts, cleaned and repainted the metal component and handpainted all the graphics and lettering. I posted a blog that provides more detail of the process. My inspiration came from Rick Dale and his crew at Rick’s Restorations. They appear on a show named “American Restoration” on the History Channel. The sled will serve as a Christmas decoration at my front door next Christmas. I applied two coats of marine varnish to all wooden parts and the metal is painted with a Rustoleum product.
