I know a lot of my readers are probably interested in what this has costed me - to completely strip down a trailer and refurbish it couldn't be that inexpensive.... or could it?
|Let's all take a moment to remember what she looked like upon|
So what have I paid out of pocket for this rebuild?
Well, with the cost of some materials and products, I have about $800 invested into the trailer thus far. My end cost will most likely be around $1000 with the new bumper pads.
Not bad considering I scored this trailer for a mere $1750.
Now, onto the fun part. Photos and progress!
|The checker-plate came in last Friday!|
|The Boy painting the roof - the actual color is a dark|
|Fenders - resanded and painted.|
|Stripe goes on.|
|Another view of the inside vs the outside. (The doors are|
going to remain white, but have not yet been finally painted).
|The stripe was lined with tape and the remainder of the body was|
painted, including the rims of the tires.
|Roof and fenders were slapped on!|
Now the only thing missing is the checker plate... oh and windows.
|Checker-plate is assembled and it looks |
pretty damn sexy.
|Now to mount the other fender and implant the windows.|
So tonight we re-install the windows, the rest of the chrome pieces on the outside and hopefully remount the spare tire. After that, it's re-lining the bumper pads and installing them.... and then waiting to get the electrical installed by a friend.... and then laying down the flooring. She'll be ready for her maiden voyage soon!
