Thrifty Thursday-Ride On!

Big K is beyond handy.
He can fix just about anything
with a paper clip, a rubber band and some glue.
The Original MacGyver.
This is his latest project with Lil' Guy.

One was found along the side of the road.
The other was obtained by a fellow who was asked to remove
an overabundance of "stuff" in front of his house
by a friendly code enforcement officer.
Big K offered him $20 for it.
He jumped on it.

Here's what they did...

This rack wasn't as desireable as...

the toolbox.
Lil' Guy likes to haul stuff around.

The tires were in baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad shape.

A simple swap-out was in order.

The grill on one was better than the other
and one light was missing in front.

Easy enough to replace.

Wax makes everything look better.

Here's the finished project.

Hmmmm, just what we needed,
another ride-on.
Pretty soon there won't be room in the garage
for the family vehicles!

Boys and their toys...
