My latest trailer recon
I'm not big on pictures, or very good at taking them, but I will try to show some of what I have started with and what it becomes.
Starts as a 94 Load Rite Lil Rider Double with Zero rust on it.
I stripped it down to frame and axle.
Cleaned, preped, and brushed on one coat of POR-15 BlackCote top coat paint. This stuff is tuff, and expensive. $45/Qt last year.
Goes on thick and is self leveling. That is if you put in on correctly. I used a foam brush and I suck a painting. Results show this.
Only got the top of the trailer done today. Tomorrow will be the bottom and axle. Then after that come all the bolt-on intems.
I will try and update with a few pics as I go along.

Stripped down about to be prepped

After one coat of paint on top only.

Painting is done on the main frame and 95% of all the brackets. Just need to paint the bow stop "bars" and then come rewiring and installing all new LED lights.
I have all parts needed except for 2 diamond plate fenders and 3-rims/tires. Not sure if I am going 12", 13", or 20.5x8x10
Whatever way I do go, they will be aluminum rims.

Looking good Jer! I know where some 4 lug aluminum 12" wheels/radial tires can be found for a good price if your interested.

Thanks Doug. It's fun doing this, but my back is protesting badly. I may wetsand it and buff it out, but then again it looks good for a 10-footer. lol
Those still for sale? Too bad mine are 5 lug. I found some nice, new, 20.5x8x10 tires with aluminum rims for about $450 shipped for 3.

Maybe now would be a good time to open up that package you sent me and use it. lol
I think the trailer looks like hell all apart, but will look better once all the diamond plate and sterling silver color bits are added back on it.

Looking good. Nice idea's. Cant wait to see the finish with that fender and rim/tire combo

I hope to do some more work on it on Friday. That is if it is not raining or 100* outside.
Going to start wiring it up and add all the lights, including the rear corner LED "pole" lights. Also have to paint a few more small items with "sterling silver" POR-15 paint.
