The rust was so bad that stuff would fall through. It was both inconvenient and dangerous to use.
We came up with an idea to fix it without having to go out to the store and purchase a new one.
In this Instructable I will show you how you can repair a rusty wheelbarrow.
Hope you enjoy it!
Step 1: Materials Needed
Pop Rivet Tool
3/16 drill bit
Aluminium Sheet Metal (aluminum flashing from a hardware store will work)
All these items are easy to find at any hardware store.
Step 2: Make a Pattern
You cut the right pieces to make your pattern fit. Make sure you make the pieces much bigger than the rust holes so that you can attach it to metal that is still solid. The area near the hole will be to badly rusted for the rivets to hold.
You will use the cardboard cut out later to trace it on to the sheet metal.
Once you trace it use the shears or tin snips to cut it out.
Step 4: Rivet Sheet Metal With Pop Rivets
Now attach the sheet metal with the 3/16 pop rivet. You can use the back up washers on the back side of the rivet to make sure the rivet does not pull through.
