Caution to Harold and Doug (ETS) get the defibilator ready.

My trailer was in need of some work. Last year I replaced the bunks and carpet along with doing some touch up sanding and painting. However, my lights were becoming a problem and my fenders were begining to wear. I did some research, talked to some people and decided to have my fenders covered with black Line-x. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It looks sharp and is very functional. I had a lot of "spider webs" and cracking in my fenders and this took care of it. I replaced all of the hardware with stainless (it was galvanized). Additionally, I pulled all new wires and put in all new LED lights. I've really happy with it. I'll post a picture soon. Can't do it now cause I've got to run out for church.

When you are at church it might be a good time to pray for forgiveness for spraying those fenders with line-x.

Brian, I've got a few spider cracks on each fender where the wheel well meets the step. Just comes from 13 years of using the step. It's not bad yet though. Let's see some pics.

That's why God created pressure washers.

I was praying there would be a new boat in my drive way when I got home. I guess I didn't pray hard enough. :D

That looks pretty good to me, especially with your black and grey boat. Nice looking LED tail lights as well.

I think it looks really good, and the lights are great! Also - I like the wheels, better than OEM for sure.

Looks nice BriEOD. I'm not crazy about that functional coating on the fenders but does it really matter what others think as long as you like it?

Ah, trailer looks great but has it been getting wet other than with rain? Lets go bri, Dip that thing in a lake..

Thanks for all the comments guys. I like it. I put about $225 in it for everything plus about 6 hours of labor.

Mark my brother, yes, it has been getting wet! We went out the weekend I got back and than again yesterday. Cody actually was jumping off the swim platform to me. I got in a few good slalom sets and saw a TriStar out on the water. Brianna got up the first time on her new wakeboard. She seems to like it. We are going out again Saturday morning!

It's unreal Leroy. We have gone from this to above in 2 years. It is really a miracle and we are very blessed. Children are very special little people.

Funny you use this clique' Harold. Carla and Cody walked our daughter to the bus stop this morning. When they got back the little guy threw up all over the place. He was a rough camper until about 2 pm today. Then whatever it was is gone. He never had a fever and is holding stuff down. I wish I got over things that quickly.

:uglyhamme That's usually the way it happens with kids, the older they get the longer it lasts.

Glad he's feeling better. Been there, cleaned up that.

Wow.... That looks great. I was thinking about doing my whole trailer in that in the spring (if I can ever get that garage built by then).

It's amazing how fast they grow up. Before long, his momma's going to be asking for another 8p

I'm not so sure about that one Jim. I'd love more. However, I think she will have to have some plumbing work undone before the next one.
