Introduction: Restore a Radio Flyer Wagon
Have an old Radio Flyer Wagon sitting in your garage gathering dust? It only takes a few easy steps to make any wagon ready to conquer the hills or the sandy beaches of the coast.
Step 1: Disassemble the Wagon
Take off all of the main components to the wagon including the drive system, side brackets, and wheels. Gather materials including screwdrivers, sandpaper, spray paint, wood finish, as well as other miscellaneous tools.
Step 2: Sand Parts
Use Sandpaper to make the wood smooth before applying the finish coat.
Steel Wool can be used for the rusted metal parts to prepare the drive system for painting.
Step 3: Paint and Finish
Once the parts have been cleaned and sanded they are ready to be painted. Rustoleum is preferred for the metal parts on the wagon to avoid future rusting. A wood finish can be applied to the deck for an updated look and feel. Be sure to use painters tape to avoid panting unwanted pieces.
Step 4: Assemble and Enjoy
Now start to assemble the wagon when the parts are dried and ready. Don't forget to pump the tires and lube the moving parts. Done!
