Looks great beach! Thanks of the pics. My boat is getting its carb rebuilt right now but the trailer (and teak platform) are next on my list.

What did you do for the steel? Did you sandblast before you painted or did you just grind down the rusted areas? What type of paint/primer did you use? How many coats?

trailer...

I had the entire trailer sandblasted (minus the fenders of course) and then powdercoated gloss black... RMI in Olathe, KS sandblasted AND powder coated it for me and the total cost was $400 + tax... I couldn't justify painting it for that cost! And the PC is going to hold up longer and be mroe durable...

The fenders I refiberglassed by hand (i had broken a taillight hole out) and then used a body smoothing filler (2 coats sanding in between)...
Then 2 coats of black primer - sanding in between
3 coats of high gloss black paint (mixed with a hardener to make it more durable)... I bought the paint at Duncan Auto paints (total cost was around $100 for paint, primer and hardener)...

Trust me go with a sandblast and a powder coat! You'll be happy you did!
