At long last weâ€™re getting weather good enough for me to spend time outside on the wagon. I wheeled the wagon out a couple of weeks ago to get started on reinstalling all of the interior parts. Pretty much all of the interior parts were sitting in a pile in the cargo area with the exception of the seats and the carpet. a couple of hours later all was right in my world again as the interior was put back the way it should be. I still need to reinstall the old blue door panel on the drivers side but itâ€™s a small portion overall and the rest of the wagon looks like a functional vehicle again.
When putting the wagon back into the garage again I noticed several streaks on the driveway and the garage. It seems that the rust on the top of the front frame forks decided to eat itâ€™s way through one of my brake lines and every push on the pedal caused a stream of brake fluid to squirt across the driveway. A quick trip to my mechanic gave me firm brakes and a fresh layer of undercoating on the front frame forks and my wagon is back in business. Not the best way to start the wagon season but progress is progress.
