'73 Red....Wow!
« on: April 07, 2013, 12:10:27 PM »
I posted a couple weeks back regarding the '73 red I picked up from Craigslist.  It sat in storage for approx 35 years and was in near perfect condition.  I finally refinished the handle and shined the legs and ash pan with 0000 steel wool.

That's nice enough to make me think about adding more reds to my stable. Awesome rescue!

Can you flip the triangle over?  You would prob need to take the wheels off, I think it's upside down....other than that it's perfect.....

Just pull the legs and flip 'em end for end. No need to pull the wheels.

I appreciate you pointing that out.  I didn't notice.  I just flipped the triangle.

Thanks again...
