Getting my trailer blasted and painted this weekend. I need to take bunks, boat guides, lights, fenders off before I take it to the shop. Any words of wisdom when taking this stuff off?

How do you get the reflectors off? Drill out the rivets? Do did you fill the rivet holes or can they be re-used?

Thanks!

D.

Bunks are always a fun one. The carriage bolts are sometimes tough to get out. I ended up having to grind mine.

Reflectors were drilled. I then replaced with adhesive circle reflectors to cover the holes. Send me your address... I have like 30 extra. Tell me how many you need of red and amber.

Pony up and do LED's, too. Make this thing as pimpin' as the cart! Good luck and let me know if you need anything!

Are you powdercoating or just painting? I had to remove the trailer brake lines, wires and also the actuator in the tongue. That will keep your cost down so the blaster doesn't charge you extra labor to remove that stuff.

What is your expected cost to sandblast and paint (powerdercoat??)?

No powdercoating, just paint.

Hey, I need to replace my jack on a '94 MC trailer. It has a mount welded on the trailer like yours so I was curious which jack you found that fits it. My original Atwood jack is no longer made so I need to find a replacement. Thanks

Crazy, I'm just going through the process today!

I picked up the Fulton single wheel jack with a weld on plate. Once I got the plate and compared it with my 94' jack bolt holes, there just isn't enough metal to tap for the trailer and then mount the new jack. I am bringing the trailer over in a few hours to a welding shop and have him cut off the old bracket and weld on the new one. It just won't "bolt up" to the existing one. I've heard about $40 to get it welded so we'll see what my welder says.....

I just did my '93 trailer and drilled 4 half inch holes in a metal plate that sit right over the oem mounting tabs on the trailer and plug welded it. No need to lose the tabs or cut anything off. The original tabs actually look like factory stand offs when it's all done and it provides great clearance to swing the wheel up

Boatmate sells an adaptor plate to make the f2 work on the original welded on mounting location

Thanks for the tip. Would be great to get a new plate welded on there but realistically, this might be the answer.

I'm not trying to be a butthead here, but those plug welds don't look too good. I would think if you were going to plug weld like this you weld up the entire plug and make sure you get good penetration on both parts. The lap weld on the back seems to be sitting on top of the metal with very little penetration as well. Was this done with flux core wire or shielded gas?
