Tonka front loader conversion with solar upgrade. via instructables
In this Instructable, I will attempt to show you how I converted a 1980’s Tonka push toy into a working RC robot. Since the robot was assembled prior to the thought of creating an instructable, I hope this serves as a guideline when thinking of creating your own.
When converting a Tonka truck, getting parts isn’t the difficult task but locating the actual metal truck will definitely be a challenge. I had the best luck on Craigslist. I got four for a deal and started with the front loader.
