Here's latest pics....
I re-designed the bumper storage area b'cuz:
1) it's the single most complained about issue with AS's REAR END SEPARATION/ROT.
2) I wanted more room
3) I never want to do this job over again
So. A) Remove piano hinge from bumper access hatch.
B) Remove bumper (mine was gouged so painted with truck bed liner, black)
C) Prep and paint every thing.
D) Install drawer pull's on frame channel.
E) Fab and install marine ply bumper inserts to create barrier...install outboard of
frame channel....caulk and fasten into bumper.
F) Cut Alum. pce. to replace piano hinge.
G) Assemble and provide gaskets above and below bumper.
Mean while get a Sport Fish rod holder and make to fit below (but above grounding off sets.
Here are also pics of the front of trailer with painted rock guards...they had too many pittings to look good any more.
