Re: Ol' Rusty Hauler (8th Jun 09 at 4:50am UTC)
it only had brakes on one when I bought it when I get a little extra cash Im gonna freshn up the pair I have and add them to the other axle also, they work but I disconnected them when I went thru them and the wheel bearings today one of the springs on the driver side brake broke......

pulled it around a little today and picked up wood and some stain for the wood, it pulls perfect it feels lighter than it use to, it might be because I moved one of the mounts because it was off too so it tracks better the tires dont kick in anymore since I put the bow back in the axles (when the guy narrowed them he welded them together straight) and the fact that I cut a shit ton of junk un-needed metal out of it.... and its way stronger than it use to be {Grin} the deck is 82" now and I put the 4 inches back in the axles the guy cut out it is 1 inch under max legal width on the tires..... Im super happy with the way it pulls cant wait to get all the finishing touches on it done!!! :kranker:

Re: Ol' Rusty Hauler (11th Jun 09 at 4:02pm UTC)
Thanks! I got what I wanted a multi purpose flat bed trailer instead of an ugly ass car hauler only... did what I need to do for my use.... stretched the tounge to fit a box up front moved the jack so I can open the tailgate when the trailer is hooked up and lowered it a couple inches even though I wish it was still a few more inches lower.... best part is its now wide enough to where my truck just barely fits without the tires hanging over the sides now!!! Im still gonna add a few more d rings and stake holes on the sides possibly a step on each side in front of the tires too when I do the wheel wells, so it still has a few things to be done but I finally feel accomplished on the thing, time to work on the rig now Smiley I cant decide what to do with the wheel wells thinking of a tube frame and cover it in sheetmetal or pie cutting some angle iron to bend to the shape I want to make a frame, something that can be driven on so when I go full width I dont kill the fenders

I need to do that to my trailer. What brand sealer is that? Do you spray it on?

Olympic from Lowes PPG makes it, The old man at the trailer supply recommended it, Rob put boiled lin seed oil on his I like the way his turned out too.... I used a foam roller and just rolled it on did all sides before putting the deck on, I got a cedar tone sealer it comes in that clear or redwood color
