Kicking myself for not taking 'before' pics, but it was typical for age with probably more than typical rust on the cross members (previous owner lived on a dirt road) and the right fender had been damaged in a 60 mph wheel off incident. Notable aspects of the project:

1. Switched color from white to black to color match my boat.
2. Had to have the fender repaired at a body shop, cause can't buy '93 fenders any more
3. For graphics, used the window decals you can buy at the dealer plus 3M pin striping
4. Added roller wheels to prop guard
5. New winch, bunk carpet, grip tape, misc. hardware
6. Trailer sand blasted and painted

Happy with how it turned out. Had added the new wheels a few years ago, but they really pop against the black. Still waiting for the other 4 grip tape pieces to come in at the dealer.

What did you use for paint product? Primer - final coat

Did you do that work yourself? If not, how much did the sandblast and paint cost?

Looks great by the way - exactly what I am planning with mine.

The paint is an acrylic polyurethane, recommended by the shop that did the sandblasting and painting. Said they use it on snow plows, very tough stuff.

I did some of the work. Had one shop sand blast and paint the frame, and another shop repair my fiberglass fender and refinish both. Sandblast, paint, welding (drag wheels and couple minor repairs) $850.

Fiberglass work was expensive, $960. But one of the fenders was badly damaged and needed a fair amount of glass work. If I remember correctly, the refinish portion of the bill was about $300 (Sand, paint, clear). Got it done at a body shop that does a fair amount of old Vett work. The shop rate at the local boat repair joint was double the body shop's rate. The old boat premium...

Has anyone found a replacement trailer jack that fits cleanly with the factory mounting configuration on this era trailer?

If someone has, I would like one too. I saw a thread of someone creating an adapter plate.

The original jack is an Atwood #84025. I ordered one from llmarine.com, but they went out of business last year. Try contacting Atwood directly and see if they can assist.

FYI...Redneck Trailer Supply has the Atwood 84025. Called Atwood, they will also sell direct but happened to be out of stock, referred me to Redneck, said they are the biggest distributor of Atwood products.

Just called Redneck Trailer Supply and the Atwood 84025 doesn't mean much to them. Do you have a part number they understand?

Call the Illinois retail location, 309-862-1000. They are the only branch with the item in stock at this moment. I called and told them I need an Atwood trailer jack, model #84025...they were able to look it up.

The rep I talked to at corporate, 1-866-9REDNECK also was able to look it up based on the Atwood model number, so not sure why you had issues. Corporate pointed me to the IL location because they had stock.

Great Job!
Where did you get the rollers? They look like poly wheels, but smaller than the ones I've found. Doing my '91 this winter and gathering parts/pics now. thanks for the post!
