Wow Scott. You keep going like this, and adding stuff to the collection like you are, you'll have more than any of us. Great find, and Congrats!

It doesn't need to be 100%. They're all special.
I really look forward to the day you post pics of that trailer, all shined up.

Well I was able to do some work on the dump cart this weekend. Learned a hard lesson on body filler. I normally use spot putty, but in this case ( the bed was solid and in very good shape) I felt I needed to use a harder filler on the rust pit marks. Lesson 1- make up small amounts of the putty. Lesson 2- put on thin coats and clean up the extra putty.
Since I put it on pretty thick and had made too much at a time, it was drying up on me as I put the last amount on. When I came out this morning to sand it, it was hard as a rock and hand sanding with 46 grit sandpaper was not making a dent. I finally pulled out the angle grinder and with 120 grit was able to sand it down. But I lost an hour or so getting this done. At this point the bed has been filled and the sides have been spot puttied. It has been hand sanded and sprayed with primer, just ran out of daylight to get it painted. Rain tomorrow so may be the end of the week before I can get it painted.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1350260566.237271.jpg
Bottom right hub is painted with the correct yellow color, now I will have to repaint the other rim.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1350260712.567541.jpg
Here is the axle/tongue already painted.

Has been raining and over cast since I got finished with the cart, so I only have one picture to share at this point.
Here is the before and after pictures.

Updated with new pictures. As you will see, it is not perfect, still learning how to paint with a gun and my prep work could have been better.

Here is a little clearer picture of the cart. First time using a air compressor and gun. Yes there are several things I would have done different. But it has been fun learning how to do it.

Forgot to give Daniel credit for the decals! They look really sharp!

I think it looks super Scott! If I can't ever find a true Bush Hog trailer, maybe some day I'll get time to fab a replica cart.
