I Completely Re-did The Boat Trailer (new Paint, New Wood And Bunk Carpet, New Winch And Cables, New Vertical Trailer Guides With The Mastercraft Pads, New Welded Prop Guard, New Black Window Trim, And New Rims And Tires)

I Got The Rims And Tires Off Ebay Mounted And Ready To Install For $110 Each Brand New. I Love Ebay!!

I ALSO PAINTED THE WINDOW TRIM LIKE SHEP DID ON HIS PRO-STAR. IT TURNED OUT NICE. THE BEST $3 I EVER SPENT ON A SPRAY CAN!!

I ALSO ADDED SOME 25 CENT PVC CAPS TO THE VERTICAL TRAILER GUIDES. I GLUED THEM ON WITH HOUSEHOLD CEMENT. THEY MAKE THE TIPS EASY TO SEE WHEN THE BOAT TRAILER IS IN THE WATER LOADING THE BOAT. GREAT IDEA I THOUGHT!

Trailer looks great! Nothing like a nice trailer and wheels to show off your MC! What kind of wheels and tires are they? I think I paid almost that much just for new tires alone. Great job!:)

Looks nice man. Thanks for the head's up. Going to order 3 for my rig now. You going to do anything about a tie-down point at the front, or leave as-is?

Great job 02! You're almost making me miss that old boat... almost...

Those wheels look sharp. The white caps are good idea. But when you re-do your lights/wiring, it's a fairly easy job to stick some cheap lights on top of those boat guides. They really helped line up for the trailer on those early evening ramping sessions.

Shep what kind of lights did you mount on your guide poles? Any pics of that?

I just got some cheap truck-type lights at AutoZone - I think they were around 4 bucks each. The back of the lights were domed so they fit nicely into the top of the poles. There was a metal mounting tab on the back of each light that i was able to screw into the guide pole to hold it in place.

There should be a few pics of my trailer with those lights towards the end of my "restoration diary" thread, including an evening shot with the lights on.
