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).

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.

I located an appropriate piece of metal and welded it to the frame rails.  The rest of the wagon should be able to go together tonight.

Here's the front end all mocked up.  I took this pic before welding on the frame rails.

Just slammed.  Real basic rat rod here.
