Repair Progress Report #1
The bolt that held the seat assembly onto the leaf spring broke when Hubby loaded the cart onto the trailer. Therefore we had a repair to do. Hubby took the seat off, then the staff off the leaf spring and headed to Home Depot to purchase replacement bolts. One day's work and the repair is complete. There was also a tear in the seat vinyl so we removed that and tomorrow is "replace the seat foam and cover day". The cart will then be useable. The left tire has separated so it has to come off so we can bang it on the driveway to move the rubber back in place. The bearing will be repacked. That will probably be another day.
Finally, Hubby wants to touch up the black paint on the wheel rims and the iron fixtures on the cart. Phew. I kind of wish we bought new but then we wouldn't have the pride in fixing the cart up.
The bottom line is that I will be making Hubby take me and the cart to the stable on Saturday for a test run. The cosmetic painting can wait til next week.
