    agree on the brilliant.

    now trick it out.

    spray paint uniform color.
    that flat area by handle - 6 pack cooler.
    some carriage bolts in the old mounting holes.

    Yea I might put a fresh coat of paint on it but the existing holes in the wheelbarrow are going to stay as weep holes so water doesn't accumulate in the tub.

    After i read your comment about the cooler I think the next pressure washer I find will be turned into a fishing cart add a cooler and some rod holders.

    Nice! How is the balance? Do you have pics of the pressure cleaner with one wheel and wooden handles?
