Inspired by Abbott- Pimp my Wheel Barrow.
My ski is away and the wife said why can't you spend that time fixing my wheel barrow. Beer was involved in this project.

A feeble attempt. I think the fumes got the better of me. That's when I mounted the rear view mirror and clock. Still need to find a gimbled cupholder and cellphone mount. I bow to the pimpmaster John.

I went with the raised letter flat free wheel and guilded them in gold. Painted the hubs in metallic blue yet left the white wall. Called Chip Foose- Still waiting for reply.
in. re. the shovel project- We are already working on a prototype but it's very hush hush stuff. Working closely with NASA, Kerry and Budwiser.

Just came back from lake. Speed tests with the wheel barrow did not go as well as predicted . Blame it on weather but resolved porpoising issue.Can't trust the dreamo. Will report once I mount the gps.

If you shim the wheel mount then you will reduce the porpoising, but at the same time you will lose top end speed.
The Fercho/Kerry package will give you more load carrying capability without losing speed or handling.
Riva has a Stage II, but nobody gets the same results with the same parts.
