Suggestions on painting my wagon

Postby ShawnAgne » Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:32 am

Got a Sears wagon that looks like the 528. It is black but underneath you can see some red. Anyways I'm going to restore and paint it. Question is what do you suggest for the bed of the wagon? Primarily it hauls trash from the garage to the burn pile. It may haul mulch.

Originally it would have been painted the same as the rest of the trailer. If you want a more durable coating, use spray-on bed liner.

That is what I was wondering, there is a local place that does the Rhino lining. Should i do that provided I can get it red?

You can buy it in a spray can at most Auto parts stores, but not sure what all colors it comes in. You may find a paint or automotive store that deals in paint, who would mix it for you to match....I've never inquired along that line, just used black.

The only thing I would add is to think about how easy you want anything to slide out of it. Some of the spray on liners have a pretty good texture to them. Sometimes when I want the protection, I put a stall mat in the bed. Take it out when I want something to slide easy

I got a couple rattle cans of it at Rural King a few months back for another project. I'm thinking what I've got left will get used on the wooden flooring on my utility trailer.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

I'd be careful with that, since it will prolong moisture retention.
