An update on the brake overhaul on my trailer. I just put in an order for the items listed below from CalTrailer. If I'm going to replace the actuator and the calipers, I might as well go ahead and replace the lines to ensure there's no corrosion material left to foul up the brakes in the future. I'm going to turn the rotors. As soon as these parts come in I'm going to have my local weld shop fab the new housing to the existing hinge-piece.
Something else I decided to do while I'm working on the trailer is to replace the trailer pads located on the fenders. One had fallen off and the others were cracking badly. I decided to replace them with what Sk8solomon had done, all-brite aluminum diamond plate. I took the old pads in and they're cutting them using a flowjet. Material and labor is going to run me about $150. I intend to pop-rivit them to the fenders rather than glue them on.
I'll be posting pictures during the installation.
