Thanks for the slalom guy decal idea Rod, and thanks to you many members who sent me graphics files for it. I ran out of black bunk carpet, so I used some ugly carpet I had lying around the house to pad the cross members.

I need to show a shot with my new wheels. I had a couple extra PROSTAR 190 decals, so I put them on the fenders instead of buying new "Mastercraft" decals.

That is unbelievable!! Great job. How much cheaper was restoring it than buying a new trailer? I know alot of the fun is in the before and afters but just curious on the financial side of it?

What winch (make/lb) and strap (length) did you go with? I just replaced mine but like your setup better.

Doing most of the work myself, except sandblasting and painting, it cost me a total of about $1200. A new trailer probably would have cost twice that, or more. I lost track of exact cost after my 20th trip to the hardware store to get another bolt/washer/screw...

Slink (and anybody else), if you want the skier guy decal files, pm your email address to me.

I got the winch at West Marine. Edit: It's a Fulton XLT1401 winch.
