here is the latest update on redoing my yard trailer with diamond plate. When I showed pictures before some body suggested I put  fenders and a upper rail on it, well I have the fenders installed and in the process of making upper rails.I am doing the tailgate which I also had not planned .This has turned into a real project,but I am enjoying it.Wider tires and wheels are in the future also.

It looks very nice with the fenders, but be careful you don't catch them on a tree or stump, or car bumper!

Looks very nice but won't material "hang up" on the checker plate when you dump it? Or is it a show buggy that won't be hauling dirt and mulch etc.?....Dave

it will be a show trailer, I use most of my stuff but some pieces all they are good for is the shows.I just painted the work trailer with brush on bedliner inside and gloss black outside.
