I can't wait to see how yours turns out! I love the reinforcing and plan to do similar.

I showed this thread to my daughter and she says I need to tell her when its all done so she can see it.

That looks pretty classic and old - might want to leave it as-is.  I'm no Radio Flyer expert but I'd bet it's worth more as-is vs. repainted etc.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Mines worth $8 dollars :)

The more I think about it, I'll probably have everthing chrome and brass plated like the bike and paint the tub to match the sidecar..  Get some new decals and then have it pinstriped like the rig.

Can you imagine one with some chrome wheels, maybe brass caps on them... yeah

I picked up some stuff at the hardware store, but now I'm realizing I'll need more of them.  Those fork shaped things (clevis fasteners) are going to be real handy, but they were a little expensive ($6.50 ea).  I'll need 4 total, which means those pieces alone will cost as much as the wagon did ($25).

Rear half-shaft components

The new half shafts were cut from the original axle, hence the rust.  I like rust, BTW.

I need another piece of metal to attach a bracket to the frame rails so I can rivet this piece to the firewall.
