With my youngest grandson turning three soon I went and retrieved the toys I had built for my son when he was a little fella. His two sons had grown out of sandpit toys (computer games now) and they were just rusting in the weather. They all needed to be stipped, sandblasted, welded/repaired, repainted (they had some hard use through two generations) and reassembled. I made this for my daughter about 1984 from some leftover gal sheet and a wheel from a tricycle. This is made with some aircraft alloy fitted to a plastic truck. The mongrel dog had chewed the cab and wheels off the trailer (Bunnings replacements) but I'm sure it will carry a few loads yet. This was still working but not straight and very rusty needing to have metal welded in. The tractor and trailer I made (in about 1987) from sheet steel and some wheels from a broken plastic tractor and two baby stroller wheels. The Jeep had been smashed up pretty well but I was able to straighten it out and made a new roll bar from some old car fuel pipe. I still had the John Deere green that I painted it with originally but not enough to do it all so used some left over Kawasaki green. Might do this one next.
