Speakers next...
Looks great - where did you find the vinyl around here?

Did some painting on the front of the trailer. Put a new winch on and then decided its shiny newness made the trailer look that much more dingy, so I took it off, got some rust killing primer and sprayed it on, then got some gloss white and sprayed it on in several coats. Much better! I blended into the rest of the trailer as best I could but it's a different white and there's no way around that. To be done right the whole trailer should be sand blasted and repainted, but that is not in the cards right now.

Before:

After:


Still gotta hit the bow rollers with some lacquer thinner to remove the overspray.
