Just recently I bought a beat down wooden toy tractor on a fleamarket. I costed me 4€. Before giving it to my son I decided to give it a little facelift.

Tools involved:
Screwdrivers
3mm and 5mm drill bits
sandpaper (80 to 320 grit)
handsaw
cutting knife
hammer
pincers
file

Materials:
wood dowels 5mm
welding wire 3mm
wood beads
blue masking tape 6mm from 3M
standard painters masking tape
spray paint (red and clear)
primer for plastic

Step 1: Taking apart and sanding

The title says it pretty clear: take everything apart, keep all the parts (for now) and give the wood parts some treatment with sandpaper. Start with a rough grit to get rid of the old coating and work yor way up to the fine grit to create a smooth surface.
