Wow it's been a whole year since I posted anything regarding this project. I guess I didn't realize last year that I had posted the day after my dad had died 15 years prior. Yesterday, the 24th was the 16th anniversary of his accident.
The wheelbarrow hasn't been forgotten, but it's definitely on pause for now. The weather during the summer was just too warm for me to do anything with it, which is unfortunate because I could really use it for a yard cleanup project I have in mind for the fall and winter. Ah well, at least the weather will be nicer soon and I can resume work on the restoration.
