Time for picture update. It has gotten colder again so no painting lately. I did start taking the tape off the orange trailerband installing the LED marker lights. Also, you can see the black trailer uh... Apart lol.

Best advice I can give you, is don't attempt spray bomb on projects this big. The orange trailer ate I believe 10 cans of spray paint ($5 a can). The black trailer is already up to 8 cans already itself (also $5 a can). Spray is needed on angle iron and tight spots, but paint brush would give better coverage overall for dollars spent. Oh, wait til warmer weather. I'm at the point I had to quit on these trailers again due to the cold. Had I focused on the black trailer only it might have been done by now, but oh well, I like the result on the orange trailer.

It might need that too! If you'll remember, I had to rework the cross members when I got it!
