1990 Trailer Refurb PROJECT(photos)

I thought I'd post the link to some pictures of the entire process of refurbing my 1990 prostar trailer! It came out better than I ever expected! Enjoy!

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Wow that is awesome, very nice job. I need to do that to my trailer, but I am torn. My boat lives 90 to 95% of the time in dry stack at the marina, and the trailer in a storage yard not to far from there. I would hate letting the trailer sit after all that work.

The powder coat really looks nice. $400 to blast and coat seems like a deal.

Yes, you can buy a kit to do this. Do a search for SodarSki's trailer project. He recently did this mod.
