I looked into buying a new trailer until I decided to re-paint, re-wire, and re-bunk the old one. <BR> <BR>Before Pictures: <BR> <BR> <BR><!--attachment: 1-775090.unk*attachment_icon.gif*image/jpg*43.7*Upload*1%2eJPG --><center><table border=1><tr><td><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/icons/attachment_icon.gif" align=left alt="image/jpg">Upload<br><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/1-775090.unk" target="_blank"><b>1.JPG</b></a> (43.7 k)</td></tr></table></center><!--/attachment--> <BR><!--attachment: 2-775091.unk*attachment_icon.gif*image/jpg*90.9*Upload*2%2eJPG --><center><table border=1><tr><td><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/icons/attachment_icon.gif" align=left alt="image/jpg">Upload<br><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/2-775091.unk" target="_blank"><b>2.JPG</b></a> (90.9 k)</td></tr></table></center><!--/attachment-->

Nice work Ryan. Just saved yourself some Coin!

wakemann 02-15-2010 1:33 PM

Nice work, what type of paint is that? Looks 100% better.

99_slaunch 02-15-2010 1:40 PM

Very nice work. I will loan you my trailer and you can do the same to it.

rkinsell 02-15-2010 1:53 PM

The paint is sherwin williams automotive. Color is compatible to Du Pont's "BS 455" to match the nautique gel coat. <BR> <BR>Anytime Aaron <BR> <BR>Here is another pic of the sandblasting process. I used a product called Garmet rather than sand. It worked awesome and was alot safer<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/775145.jpg" alt="Upload">

jtnz 02-15-2010 4:48 PM

Did you get the garnet in your eyes at all while blasting? No matter what eye protection I wear I always seem to get it in my eyes when it bounces back off the job.

akman 02-16-2010 5:56 AM

Gotta love those low boy trail rite trailers....they tow great and look sleek with the boat on them.

rkinsell 02-16-2010 6:45 AM

I was fine with just safety glasses except some spots you had to take the ricochet right off the face. I went out and got a hood and used it part of the time.

wakeboardsam 02-16-2010 9:20 AM

Ryan, <BR>I thought a bunch of school kids did all this work for you for free....

pcolajosh 02-16-2010 10:20 AM

Very nice work! Is the side mounted light near the license plate a back up light or does it have an amber bulb for turn/running lights?

rkinsell 02-16-2010 12:06 PM

Yeah a few guys from the training center got me started, but then we had a falling out with the union hall the next day. A bunch of drama thats cleared up now, but it was bad timing for me. <BR> <BR>The side rear is a clear backup light.

wakeboardsam 02-16-2010 12:24 PM

Did you get the grean slime off the boat? Did you get a hold of Dustin? That kid does good detail work!

rkinsell 02-16-2010 1:08 PM

never got Dustin's number from Lantz

njwaterwarrior 02-17-2010 10:07 AM

Ryan, real nice work cause the trailer looks better than new. I am thinking of re-doing my trailer, but in full line-x or rhino lining. I just saw a trailer that was completely done with the stuff, and it looks real nice. Not quite as nice as the blue you have, but pretty cool though.

durty_curt 02-17-2010 10:25 AM

cant wait to see this trailer with the matching boat! i dont see where the green in your boat will match the trailer<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> jk, when you gonna pull it out of bartlett &amp; cancel your slip rental?

rkinsell 02-17-2010 12:02 PM

I pulled the boat out last Saturday. Took a ride towards the dam, but had to creep back since there is still debris everywhere
