The Vardo - Cleaning the Bones

 After we got the bones home Eli had to remove the wooden sides and bust out the drill and wire brush tools.  There was a lot of rust around the support brackets and on the front of the bones by the nose of the trailer.

Here Eli is giving me a break down of where each of the components will be in the wagon.  The front is projected to have a window and some pass through storage below the bed area.  We're tossing around the idea of making our bed out of straw.   I'll keep you posted on how that goes.  LOL

So here's the bones all cleaned up and getting a fresh coat of Rust-Oleum.  We went with flat black. So far I'm extremely pleased with how she's looking.  Next steps, floor frame.
