    You can buy Nozzle Spray or Nozzle dip also.
    Not trying to step on toes here, just an observation. Cost wise, Pam (in our neck of the woods) cost's around $3.69 to $3.99 for a 6oz can. The same amount of money will buy you 16oz of anti spatter spray.

    Anti spatter gel runs about $4.50 for 16oz jar.

    LOL, yeah I hear that. LWS is 45 minutes to an hour away on a sunday afternoon, and probably closed. Only have a couple of welds left and the spatter gel is gone. The cook gets robbed.

    No I don't like spatter.

    Just a thought!! I bet she would see no humor if I was to replace her Pam spray after my next trip to the LWS. Oh Boy>>> anti-splatter fried eggs. Best thought, I dont think I'll go there.

    It looks like I could be off tomorrow Bad news is I probably cant work on the trailer . This rain is getting OLD! It prob ally wont be long and I'll be wishing it would rain, but for now I want it to stop.

    To be totally honest guys, I was in the driveway with a fair amount of wind to deal with and I actually forgot about the spray. Its a little more work but I will just have to knock it off with the flap disk.

    I am using 1/16 plate that I have a surplus of for the box instead of expanded metal. I know that its extra wind drag but I figure that whats out of site is out of mind when it comes to the thieves. I dont mow for a living I only do it to help out family and for the few extra bucks it earns me. This means my trailer sits most of the week and works on the weekend, leaving it for all to look at thru the week.

    I cant decide if I should weld the sheets completely or skip every 3 inchs or so and use silicone to help seal the water out. It doesn't have to be totally water tight but I would like to keep most of the water out.

    Well we got rained out today, but the day wasnt a total loss. The rain moved out about 2:00 and I moved right out to the driveway shortly there after. Ya I know I wont melt but I really HATE getting shocked, it just isnt as fun as it used to be. I was able to cut my sides, top, and doors. I decided to go ahead and weld all the way around. And I would like to say that I am quite proud that I managed to get it done with out making any salad bowls. Most of the time I get carried away and lay down a little to much bead and wa-la it draws up and I have a worthless salad bowl. Here is the pile of leftovers.



    And here is a couple more of the welds and panels.







    Sorry the cam on my phone doesnt take real good pics of welds. They always end up fuzzy looking.

    I made a little progress so here is a few pics, there is no paint yet in these pics so tomorrow I will have to take a few new ones.






    I got the side rails ran all the way to the back of the trailer now, it turned out very nice and is much more solid with the brace behind the fender.



    Oh great now everyone can see that I haven't trimmed my bushes in a while.
