    Sooo... I have some exciting news. I finally got around to staining some bits of my cart. It looks very nice, IMO. I love the color, couldn't be happier. Though thanks to the snow falling outside/cold I can't urethane varnish it today. It's still drying so it's a bit "patchy" but, here's some pics anyways 'cause I'm so darn stoked.

    Really quick, I thought I would post a picture of the sanded wheels and such which I do not think I have done yet. These pictures are from a month or two ago.

    transporting a cart.

    Im deepley thinking about makeing some brackets and have them welded on to my trailer so I can take tricky and quincy and my troting sulky.
    I have seen quite a few sulkys like that.
    So the thought is there and if sarah takes pebbles and misty and my sulky to her mums at the sea in my trailer and I have my new one and van I can take nancys cart as well so I can ride quincy on the beach and also drive tricky so that's in my wish list.

    So I've been very busy these last few days trying to strip sand and stain my cart. I've got about 1/3 of the floor boards stained along with the dash and fenders. I'll be putting the parts I've stained back on the cart until I can take the whole cart up to the garage to be re-taken apart and varnished... Not ideal but, better than varnishing and having a ton of dust stick to the new varnish...

    I am really loving this color...

    They are beautiful, Love the color too.
    I hope you numbered those floor slats, or it is going to be one heck of a puzzle putting them back together.
    Looks really good!

    Yes, I heeded your warning the first time!

    My dad walked out this morning with a grim look on his face... I hope you marked all of those boards... Yeah, dad I did... The same way? Facing the same direction, too?... LOL, no faith.

    I know how excited I got when refinishing. I said, "oh I will remember" or "it can't be that bad". Ha! It took me days! I just didn't want anyone else to go through that nightmare. Then I marked some just numbering, well each numbered board could go 4 ways, It was better but still a pita.

    The first time we went to Sport Horse Nationals, we had an older Meadowbrook that needed refinishing....DH decided, rather than paint the metal, he would take it to a shop and have it all powder coated. With the thing completely dis-assembled, I twould be SO much easier(for ME) to work on.RIGHT? So, we numbered all those slats, took it apart, and the metal went to the shop. In mid August. The show was in late September. I sanded, and stained and varnished, all the while dripping sweat, because it was 105+ on the porch, and then DH decided he did not like the slats, and he took them to our friend's house and RAN THEM THROUGH THE PLANER....yep, erasing all the numders. The metal came back from the shop on the day BEFORE we were supposed to leave. At 1 in the morning, we were STILL trying to figure out how those slats went on the cart!!! We actually made it to Dallas, and then on to Virginia. And Hurricane Ike came through while we were gone!

    Just a tip for anyone refinishing a Meadowbrook.
