This trailer was actually GIVEN to the customer in order to get it hauled away! I neglected to take a "before" picture but here are some "in-progress" images.
Prime with epoxy primer
Paint with high gloss anti-rust paint
Purchase and install:
New aluminum wheels with locking lug nuts and radial tires,
New tongue jack
New wishbone bunks
Still to come:
Replace bearings and seals
Replace nylon spring bushings in suspension system ( some are already missing)
Add keel roller
New strap-type winch
Fabricate and install custom "goal post" style bow stop (as on trailer above)
New fenders (there were no old fenders!)
New LED light kit
Before and after pictures of two more trailer refurbishments.
New trailers are great but do they have the old time tilt bed mechanism?
Do they add to the originality of the boat when trailered?
This trailer was sandblasted, then painted with XORust Gloss so that the owner can go to a True Value hardware store and get touch-up paint (in a "rattle can" to spray on) (which can also be bought in quarts and gallons for brush-on applications).
