1981 S&S Resto

Well I'm back for vacation and starting my resto thread like I told everyone so lets get started. Today I got the boat on jack stands and lifted it off the trailer. I pulled the trailer out pretty much like everyone else has done moving jack for every cross brace. I think I will do it differnt when I put it back on the trailer but that willl be covered later. here are some pics of the trailer. I will finish the trailer first and then get to the rest of the boat. See my other threar What Did I Get Myself Into for previous pics.

Took the fenders off and bunks off this morning. Almost got everything off but it was just to hot outside. lots of work to do on frame. You can see in the pictures below the rust and damage. P.S. is one of the rear bunk frames suposed to be bent in or are they both suposed to be straight? Any recommendations on how to clean and paint the trailer?

Those bunkers look pretty far gone. Have you considered cutting them out and replacing with new channel steel?

a New trailer for that boat might not be a bad option either.....Are you going to blast it to see what is left?

I didnt really want to spend 2 grand on a new trailer. Media blasting is not out of the question but I am having a hard time finding somewhere close to do it. Might just sand blast it myself
