    Seems that the Rust Blast etched the metal somewhat.

    Starting to paint tomorrow.

    Don't really like the dark red color...it was labeled Oxide Red.
    Gonna stop at the store tomorrow and pick up a lighter shade of red and paint over.
    Will post pics after that "Color Change".

    Still haven't heard from anyone who might know the approximate age. Any help of info is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Bolted rails on frame. 2 2x6 boards for each rail glued and screwed together.
    Cross braces just setting in place to see how they will look.
    Will remove cross braces and put a piece of aluminum flashing on top of the rails to help protect against rot.
    Then will lag bolt the cross braces in place and cover them with flashing as well.
    I plan on using 5/4 x 6 boards for the deck.
    Question: Should I use 2 or 3 screws to fasten the deck to the braces? And if the wood is somewhat cupped, should the cup face up...like a U...or down...like a sad face?

    Looks good. The Electric Wheel Company was in business from around 1890 up to 1957 when Firestone bought them out. My guess would be that it is from the 1950's judging by the tires. The older wagon utilized 4 x 28 tires and the ones that are your wagon look to be the later 7.5-20 tires.

    The front tires are 6.5x16 while the back are 7.0x16. The back tires are Goodyear while the front are Allstate. I googled Allstate tires and they were sold by Sears. Both sets of tires are very much dry rot and I have replacements that were given to me by Dobbs Tire Store. A little bigger with lots of tread but still a little dry rot on the side wall. They will do until I can afford better ones.

    Bolted cross boards to main rails using 2x2's and lag bolts.
    Added aluminum flashing to rails and cross boards. Started to put deck on.
    I begin vacation this Saturday and will not be working on the wagon until Sept. 10.
    Will keep you updated.

    Current tires have a code/number stamped on them that will indicate their date of manufacture. Older tires I do not know and it was not uncommon to put older used tires on farm wagons.
    If the U is up would that not trap water unless the wagon is always shedded.
