Recently I refinished a wagon made by my father-in-law way back in the 70’s. The wagon frame work for the wheels is all metal welded at each joint. The wheels are solid rubber and are mounted on metal hubs.
I sanded all the parts. and repainted the body of the wagon red. Then I sanded and sprayed the wheel hubs and other framework for the wheels with a chrome rust paint.
I then added the rail assembly to the wagon. The rails are 1/4” Red Oak and the stiles are White Oak. I finished the rail assembly with several coats of General Finishes outdoor varnish.
The wagon now sits at my son’s house where my Grand Daughter will use it for the next little while.
Its a family heirloom, made by Grandpa Kuntz and updated by Grandpa Bowern..
