Here's one picture of your front end cap Brad. As you know, the snow is covering the worst of the damage. The bead is pretty obvious in this shot, although it is not a close up. Doug's test beads look pretty darned good for a first cut.
(P.S. I special shout out on the blog this past Sunday. Congrats again!)

Thank you Tim

You made this possible. Ill let you know in a year or two if thats a good thing or not.

Dougs test beads do look good. I have been doing alot of reading and am starting to understand what I am up against. I guess its good I dont watch much TV. I know where my time will be spent.

Its hard not having the trailer here.

Jennifer has already named her. The Ms Holly Golightly. Holly G for short

Our other trailer is the Ms Glory B

I didn't post any pics yet cause she isn't home yet and I am not sure how, guess I need to work on that

The first photo shows part of the blemish on the front .I will probably end up replacing most of the segments on this end cap. The back of the trailer has also been damaged by a tree or something from above.

The second photo shows the blemish in back. It will require a little less attention.

Work is slow right now and its getting hard to sit here without the trailer. I might need to open some windows and see if I can melt some snow

Holly G can come out of hibernation this weekend with the help of John Deere(a close neighbor of mine) if you have a place for her. Come on out anytime.

I would like that but I need to wait at least a couple weeks yet. I need to figure out where to park it till I can get it into the back yard. As well , the money needs to sit just a little longer.

We, Jennifer and I may be interested in stopping by Saturday afternoon so she may see it. Let me know if that would be ok, if so Ill need your address. I didnt seem to pay to much attention to directions last time I was out.

The more I read on the forums the more I am looking forward to this project.
Nothing seems beyond reach!

The photo is part of what I did to our current trailer

Hi BradS!

I am glad I finally got to see pictures of your new "project". That is going to be one good looking trailer once it is done!
