Ah yes, the smell of a new project is in the air! Exciting stuff, and I have mixed feelings. I'm happy for you that you got the trailer and are going to be redoing it the way you want it, and I'm also happy that I've already done that and am now just doing the maintenance stuff that happens after useage. You can have a lot of fun redoing a trailer and then using it.
Enjoy, and keep us posted. Pictures are always good!
Name him Buck. It'll ryhme with the other word you'll use when paying for parts or doing a three handed job with only two hands during the rebuild.
Truely spoken from someone who has been there and said that.....
Brandok....interesting that you refer to the trailer as a "he".....
I believe they are all female - imho -
always needy of something -
never gets quite "exactly right" -
looks good when cleaned and spruced up -
expensive to keep and maintain -
may require extensive body work -
does not do well with rough handling or abuse -
really difficult to figure out -
maintains a certain attraction you can never quite define....
But then again, that's just me.
