It has been 80+ days since I arrived in Islamabad, Pakistan and I have only one small project to show for my time here. Problem is I have no tools. I had hoped I could secure some here but to date that hasn’t happened. I did bring a bag of matchsticks, tube of white glue and a razor cutter with no idea what I would build. The base is just a block of plywood. The wheels are cut with an electricians hole saw from a pallet. The treads were turned with a battery drill and a hack saw blade. The wheel attachment is not wood, but 1/4” drive anchors. Multi angles accented the build I thought. My plan is to add mirrors but I have decided to wait till ti is home due to shipping it. For a finish I was stuck and almost did not apply any. Then I came across a spray can of clear industrial finish. Hay it worked good and made the whole thing shine slightly. The coin is a Pakistan aluminum coin with a 2013 date. Another coin will be the steering wheel when I can get some CA glue.
A tough build to say the least. I am heading home for R&R next week and will bring back some tools to make life better. Doug
