Rat Rod Wagon Overhaul! Radio Flyer Go Kart Build

  Դիտումներ 141,804


9 ամիս առաջ

The Rat Rod Wagon is one of our oldest projects. We built this project from a Radio Flyer wagon tub, a Briggs and Stratton 5 horse engine, and scrap metal. It was originally designed for the weight of a five year old, but when we finished the build, we realized that it was way too fast. In today's video, we're redoing the steering for better handling at speed, and to better support the weight of an adult. We also paint the frame and body to stop the rusting process.
Thanks for Watching!

Muriatic acid for that "rusted" look. Be sure to use it outdoors! I opened a can in my closed garage and the fumes attacked everything that was not painted or protected!

now it looks like a Poser Wagon , all those wantabe Hot Rods out there shinny rusted Patina paint jobs , you just ruined it now it's a Poser ride just a wantabe , you could have done the maintenance and even painted those tie rods black or something so they didn't stand out so much but the clear doesn't matter if it is gloss or simi-gloss even mat finish , when was the last time you seen shinny surface rust it just doesn't happen that way , good luck Posing maybe you could wear a Bow Tie while you are riding around in the Poser Wagon , I don't think Ike could pull it off but I know John could with a button up shirt , slacks and wing tip shoes , I tell ya Ike you have to try to teach John how to be Cool

The engine may be worn out and burns oil like a 2 stroke, but why don't you put a diaphragm kit in the carburetor? It will pump more fuel so it might perform better. I like the springs added to the front end.

Unassailable reasoning - "it's gloss because the can was in the wrong spot at the store..." You just can't argue with that kind of logic...

Soak the parts in vinegar, (I know it will remove zink) so it may oxidize the metal enough to knock the shine off. Saw it on Alex Steele a couple of weeks ago.

How on earth could we object to you guys applying all you have learned to the build that started it all? It’s wonderful to see it grow with you and stay true to the sprit of the build. Is there another cart that makes you say “damn, we really would do that a little better now” any more than the Rat? Probably not.

This is still my favorite little kart you guys built, it's a perfect rat rod. Wanna weather those tie rods quickly? Get some copper sulfate ( blue root killer crystals) dissolve in water in a spray bottle and spray to your hearts content. Works like a champ
