    I used the inexpensive Harbor Freight clear Epoxy. It can be sanded and works well on things like this.

    A friend gave me this beat up Nylint camping trailer saying I could probably do something with it or use it for parts. Originally I was thinking of making it into a horse trailer for my Granddaughter who enjoys playing with cars and loves horses especially her real Pony. After a lot of time with the rust removal I found it was still structurally in good shape so I decided to leave it as a camping trailer. Not fond of the original light blue color these usually came with, I chose a darker blue. Now I need to find a car or truck to use as a tow vehicle and do it in the same color combo.

    Nylint made a 63 country squire that I think has a hitch.

    I got one of these Country Squire wagons. Not sure if Nylint made one. The one I have is a Buddy L. Ite was pretty beat up and missing some hard to get parts. I started to work on it by lowering the suspension and filling the holes for the woodgrain trim. Still need to make a tailgate and find a rear bumper.

    My bad I thought they were from Nylint,there was a trailer available for them if my memory is correct. I might have the parts you need as I found a mint wagon missing the roof rack and picked up one for parts that had the roof rack and will have to find it.

    Last week I Picked up a Wyandotte stamped steel Touring sedan that I restored and a Marx Bouncing Benny with the old foam rubber tires that are now as hard as a rock. It is missing the little guy and the pull string. Both are from the late 30's early 40's. I am also trying to identify a trailer chassis that I had laying around for a possible repurposing project. Not sure the maker or what kind of a trailer it actually was. Any help identifying it would be appreciated.

    Here's one I found in that scary space behind the toy department display where fallen toys go to hide. I'll be cutting it up to make a flash drive at some point.

    Picked up a few pieces last week including some Tootsietoys, a little Goodie Caddy and a Hubley Roadster. The little Tootsietoy truck was a broken Graham tow truck. I found a small metal piece in a box of old tools that I cut to make the boom and used epoxy to attach it to the truck. Going to order a new grille and some wheels to complete the re-build.
    I was also able to identify that trailer base I previously asked about which turned out to be from a pressed steel Wyandotte. A friend gave me a Wyandotte cab so I have started using the pieces to make a custom car hauler.

    While I was wondering around in WM today waiting for my meds to be ready....I think they plan it that way...I of course made a pass through the toy section and this is what came home with me.
    I got tired of waiting for the meds so that's tomorrow's trip.....but I got my toys. 20200218_194808.jpeg 20200218_194615.jpeg

    It's not too bad for a cheap friction toy car.
