Putting all of the details on now. Tomorrow I'll start rewiring it with a 5 wire harness and adding the LED lights.

Mike - what paint did you use and what sprayer? Did you spray this thing where it sat? No issues with dust/dirt?

I used Delstar single stage enamel, PPG. I matched the white on my Suburban so I could use the extra to touch up the trim on my truck. Using medium reducer it flashes of pretty fast so dust didn't have time to settle. I tried the fast stuff on the fenders and it flashes way too fast. For a 65 degree day, the medium worked fine. Not must dust at all meaning you would really have to look for it. I actually got more dust on the fenders shooting them in my garage than I did outside. Having the fan sucking the air out I think circulated the air enough to disturb the dust. Being that it was clear coat, it can be lightly wet sanded and buffed out.

Had a calm day and wet everything down around me. Sprayed it right in the driveway. I have my favorite Binks spray gun, old siphon style, since I wasn't really going for showroom quality. If I did it over, I would have elevated the trailer a bit more so I could get better coverage under some of the rails. Laid a big tarp out so I didn't get any overspray on the driveway.

Side shot. Still need to rewire it, lights, pinstripe and secure the fenders. I left the old side reflectors off and instead used a 3M diamond reflective product. Much stronger reflective properties than the originals.

Nice work on the trailers! Mine has a few dents in it and your pics are good inspiration. Any idea on where to get the brake parts?

Thx.

I haven't done brakes yet. In a few weeks I'll pull the drums off to see if they're tired or have been rebuilt recently. Scrambling to get it ready for Friday to take east of the mountains to finally get it on the water. I sanded the transom with #1500 after the #1000 and buffed it this morning, came out great. I put a newer decal on the back and it looks great. I'll shoot a pic and post.

Had to do the decal before I started on the lights to get a little jazzed up before I dig into the wiring.
