Trailer restore

Hi Guys

Looking at a bit of a restore job on my old 1993 trailer .
Planning on taking it back to the frame blasting it , and a coloured powder coat.
My question is re the hydraulic braking system , is how do you bleed it ?.

I am guessing it is by cracking off 1 wheel cylinder bleed nipple and pushing the front tow hitch in and out .

Any advise on this .
thanks

Kevin

A power bleeder works wonders.

Too bad there is no way to dip it to remediate rust internally.

Looking forward to more pics

I had my entire trailer & axles Powder Coated for less than I could blast and buy paint for.
Might be worth looking into.
