Go to it! I know you can do it.

I restore Military vehicles. The one thing I can tell you is... No project is too big when you break it down to many small ones.

Looks like the last time it was on the road was 1988, or at least that was the last registration. How are the windows?

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!

Barry

Guy..... how can you tell, I thought it was a girl! BTW, Lloyd's of London no longer refers to ships as female. They are now offically IT'S. "It has good lines".

Amen Brother!

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.
