Thank you very much. I do indeed feel very fortunate to be able spend the time with my parents while working on the wagon they bought when they were 25yrs old and expecting their first child (my older sister).
The goal is to get the wagon operating safely but not to alter it cosmeticly. Its a true surviver vehicle that I would like to show off just like it is.
I've always liked the saying "You can restore it a 100 times but it is only original once!"
Picture of it's face with all that great patina... beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
