    Default Good looking job!

    Looks to me like you do good quality work..I like the way you primer before painting..a lot of folks don't do that anymore.

    Default Axle from what?

    chilinges, I was wondering what the axle you used on the trailer came off of?
    Looks like it's heavy duty.
    Thanks, Farris

    That axle was already on, but it was welded on dead center on the frame. I carefully removed it and put a slipper spring kit and set it back where it should be placed. But that axle was shorten to fit that trailer, who ever did the work did a very nice job doing it. I replaced the both hubs with bearings and added the expanded metal, new fenders, lights and light fixures, new wood, etc. I fixed it up for my dad. Who was hauling a homemade cattle trailer which was to heavy to tow around just for a few goats. I also built a cage with a ramp and door that can attached or remove to the trailer. Its alot lighter to tow around with his Ford Ranger. See pics

    Thumbs up

    that's really sweet, the expanded metal really gives it a quality look that seperates it from the hardware store type. Nice job on the paint too !
