Quick & Easy Second Chances

The new wheel

On a recent trip in a mountain village, we found this truck, missing one of its rear wheels.

Our son wasn’t happy that the truck was hurt, so we decided to improvise a wheel for it.

After finding a water bottle cap, we used a little knife magic to remove part of the cap to make it fit the size.

After a quick intervention with the lighter to melt the plastic, we managed to weld it to the axle of the missing wheel.

And it actually works!

Look at it go!
