I looked into buying a new trailer until I decided to re-paint, re-wire, and re-bunk the old one.

The paint is sherwin williams automotive. Color is compatible to Du Pont's "BS 455" to match the nautique gel coat.

Anytime Aaron

Here is another pic of the sandblasting process. I used a product called Garmet rather than sand. It worked awesome and was alot saferUpload

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.

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.

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?

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.

The side rear is a clear backup light.

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

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.

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