Where is Snoopy When You Need Him?
He took a new Radio Flyer scooter (from the 2000’s), got rid of the plastic parts and gave it a red baron inspired make-over. While it looks like a relic from the 1950’s, that is due to Radio Flyer making toys in China, to lower specifications than we have in the States. Rapola got this for $28 at a local auction.
Steel wool and stripper took care of the old paint. A couple things they were trying to accomplish with the fiberglass:
1. Patch all of the holes from the cheap plastic grill/steering column
2. Cover the ugly factory seam where the the two halves of the body meet
3. Lay foundation to better profile the scooter
This was actually the third scooter he’s done, last one was a P-40 Warhawk themed scooter. No word on if he sells them once completed, or if he keeps them for his own collection.
