crap, lost em... gotta start this post over I have mentioned my trailer build a few times here on GT talk and I'm (finally) gonna get some pix up here of the trailer I built in Fall '10 and struggled with legal issues to get it legally able to be titled, plated and on the road during late winter and Spring '11... sorry no pix taken during the build itself (I wish now I had, especially to detail how I did the dovetail)
but building and snappiing pix while working myself, well I only have 2 hands LOL
I have mentioned this trailer (bordering on thread jack) in Kenny P's thread so figured I'd better start my own.
This started as a 16' camper, that was already stripped to a bare frame and axle before I got it; I got the frame from a long time buddy, whose yard I helped clean up (3 months' worth of being over there everyday) when he sold his former home so that he could "close" on the deal... he has since moved 2 hours away.
I was told "take it, or I gotta scrap it"...
These pix were during my "final assembly" and testing of the lights/wiring, as I was going thru the fight with the IL Gov't to get it legal to actually be used on-road as a trailer and not just to have as a "yard ornament"
I do have about 20 more where I have those pix stored, some are "repeats", and I also want to get pix of my recent winch addition; warning, it isn't so nice and crisp and fresh lookin no more it has recieved a few battle scars since the ones shown here were taken....
I'll detail the build story and reasoning for doing some of what I did to it, later; and get some pix of that winch install I did recently "later"... I went back to MTF last nite and looked, the most recent post has now been buried at the very end of pg 9 in "trailers" with alot of questions.info seeking from during the build, on pgs 11-12 in that topic heading.. nevermind... don't. some of my "writing skills" make me look like a fool
my name there used to be "Don B'" til I got banned a while back.. (don't ask, I will just say that I avoid any topic where Mark 777 is remotely involved, now)
looking back and reading what I wrote then; it was like "OMG, I wrote THAT"? not real organized or punctuationally "correct" if you get what I mean/ I will try to put up a condensed version here.
some of you who (used to?) frequent MTF may find these shots, familiar looking.
