Project Tot Rod
 
5 Attachment(s)
So I've been thinking about this project for awhile, and finally got started.

I am building a pedal car/wagon project to pull Norah around in. I found the startings of my project this past week at a swap meet. its a 1960's Murray V-front pedal car.

I am going to build a tube frame for it and steering assembly so that I can pull it around like a wagon. I'll pull the pedal parts out and save them for when she is bigger. It will hopefully turn out to be a cool little toy.

I did some drawing in solidworks this week to see what my frame should look like.

I also found wheels that I'm gonna try, they are off and old person's walker. Its really hard to find wheels that size that are narrow enough.

That'd be cool. I was originally going to use go kart wheels/tires, but I don't much more than 1.5" in the back for tires, I already have to make wheel wells into the seat pan so I can lower it. Any wider there wouldn't be much left of the seat :(.

So i have been picking at this over the summer, in hopes of using it at the Oct Cars and Coffee. Well I have it done in time, but now it is supposed to rain...

So I welded up the frame (not the best welder, but I don't do it often). Primed and painted the frame.


My father in-law collects signs, and gave me an older "crappy" one to use as the floor pan. I had my coworkers dad bend it up for me.


I found a seat from a Audi R8 Powerwheels for cheap and it fit perfect!

This thing has really come together! I love the seat and harness.

Looks good! Just needs some Monster stickers wrap.

Picture with my daughter in it. She looked like she was having fun cruising around in it this weekend.
