Yes, indoors until spring.Both the truck and trailer. The MINI is in Toronto with me.

Maybe you mean Port Bruce? I rented a house down there for the first couple years of the 5 year long rebuild.

Yes, you are right. Sorry! I must go back and re-read your "rebuilt".

Under carriage painted black. I think we are finished painting. Now all we have to do is get everything put back together.

The world needs more of this kind of originality.

I've been waiting for some non-conventional thinker on the silver side, brave enough to paint their trailer banana yellow or lime green or robin's egg blue....

Airplanes used to be all aluminum. They're mostly painted now.

Maybe they realized that a good paint job far outlasts a shine. Or maybe they just want to be noticed in a crowd, stand out from the competition.

'Way to go Billy!

Absolutely gorgeous!!! Your friend does excellent work!

I want to paint ours white on top, and royal blue on the bottom. Sean has other ideas (Sergei, I believe banana yellow and/or tiger stripes were mentioned ), plus painting is expensive, so it will stay the original color for a while longer.

So, now that your friend has done one of these on a "helping a buddy" basis, does he have an idea what he'd need to make to feel like it was worth him time to paint one for a "normal customer" transaction?

It looks cool. All you need now is a red cross painted on it.
