    I spy a non compliant fuel can...


    Trailer looks like its coming along GREAT!

    On and FYI I HATE these new CARB approved gas cans. I Don't know how the heck spilling fuel all over the place can be better than letting a little vapors vent out when transferring gas.

    Nick

    It sure is looking good. I bet you can't wait to pull it.

    I would sure hate to put the first scratch in it though.

    I just spotted something you guys should have done before painting the jeep :Banghead:bash I think you ordered a new wiring harness from us for the whole trailer and when it was originally built it was set up with two tail lights and the new harness is set up for three so should have cut a couple holes out for two more tail lights...but nothing a little touch up paint cant fix ;)

    Any more updates? looks awesome :thumbsup. are you gonna get to pull it Nick? Not bashing you or anything but with as much work as you guys are putting in to it, would you have been better off building a new one? or was it a steal and cheap labor? also did you get a weight on it before it was disassembled?

    Brakes are on they were wiring it today,that's about it just waiting for the last 2 pieces to get painted.Yeah I will probably pull it now and then.As far as the work put into it yeah it was a lot of work it wasnt in that bad condition its just if it was gonna be put down for the stuff it needed might as well do it all and not have to worry about it .The price even with all the work done is still alot less than a new one would have been.I dont know if it was every weighed.

    here are a couple of pics almost there.Had a couple of issues with the paint so a couple of pieces had to be touched up,so it set every thing back a bit,but it came out real nice,and a few other minor issues but every thing is back on track should be done real soon(I think i've said that before:confused:)
