|A view of the inside - it doesn't look like much, I'll admit. The
drivers side tail-light is busted |
and needs fixing. Some of the pads need some fixing up, too. You can't really see it either but the driver's side
slot, where a horse would go, one of the previous owners horses must've leaned right into it and bent the door.
So we'll be straightening that out too. This photo was also before I pressure-washed it.

This will have to be replaced. Also prior to power-washing.

front pieces). |
This made me uneeasy, so I wanted to replace it before putting
my horses in there. This is pre-pressure washing again.
And now it looks like this (I apologize for the screenshots, I only took photos for my Snapchat and forgot to take photos for my blog, lol):
|Carpet has been ripped up. You can see how much rust there is just from|
the moisture from the carpet. Saddle racks have also been stripped of the
padding as well. Doors were left open to help it dry out a bit.
|Floor has been removed completely - it actually scares me how horses are just standing on|
tiny little crossbraces. It wasn't too bad of flooring - mostly the very tops of the boards were
starting to rot... so not safe.
|Most of the pads were easily removed - the front two are actually|
screwed in and need a special screwdriver thing.
And lastnight we took the trailer to the shop. Today after work I'll be prepping it to get sand-blasted. Need to remove the fenders, spare tire, lights, etc and tape up the windows and whatnot. After that, we will have to weld some things and then prime it. Electrical work will be after that (mice chewed thru the electrical) and then painting, new floors and reinstalling the pads!
I can't wait to see what it'll look like afterwards!!
