Recently, I've made an effort in my "new" studio room (been in there for over a year, but it still feels new and not moved into) to set up a work station just for the Stagecoach.
Before deciding to fix the wheel, I ended up peeling off the "tire", intending to break the rim apart and start the from scratch rebuild. After deciding to repair the wheel "as is", I decided that this removal was fine to do, it gave me an idea how hard or easy it would be to tear down the wheel later. It wasn't too hard, but did require some patience.
I called it a night last night, after repairing the (long) broken wheel. Four wheels with spokes again, for the first time in yeeeears.
I really wanted to work on the project tonight, to keep up the momentum unexpectedly started last night. I decided to stop for tonight once I saw this:
I'm taking it slow, I'd like to work on this a bit every day (if possible). Maybe I'll finally finish it, THIS decade?
