The wagon had come to us as a flatbed Studebaker, circa 1880. We added the hoops, canvas and resin, then structural foamed the inside to make it impervious to wind. This was a collective invention of methods not really tried before, after all how many folks know how to make a covered wagon sign that can withstand the brutal elements of the Carson Valley? So saying that, I would like to thank the following folks who did the physical work and design.
We are still working on the solar lighting and making sure the base looks rustic and fits the theme. See everyone at Candy Dance
