Thanks all for your comments!

Stevebaz - I have the hardware because we had planned to order the gravel shield when we first got the trailer...so we ordered hardware as part of a bulk order of other parts because we could afford it that month (that's one of the benefits of building your own trailer...you can do it in bits and pieces as the budget permits! ).

Well, after looking at everyone's comments and watching the video I posted a link to, we thought we'd at least consider that option. Well, the old window that came out probably wouldn't make a good shield. It was scratched, which is no big deal since we were going to paint it, but there's a small crack starting to form in the lower right corner (well, it is the original plexi window after all).

So...while I'm a pretty handy guy, and I love doing the DIY thing, but after seeing what y'all thought and talking it over with the boss (aka my wife), we just decided to go ahead and bite the bullet and order the shield from Scamp. I think they're going to start awarding me frequent shopper points...

We were able to get it without the decal. Devin in the parts department said the decal is separate from the shield and you can apply it if you want to. We told them to keep it. And since I have the hardware (like I said, I threw it in on another order because it could fit in that month's budget!), he said he could take off some from the price. That's helpful. Those guys in the parts department are pretty cool.

So, when it arrives, we'll take off the edge trim, sand it down and get it ready for paint.

Thanks again, all for your insight and comments!!!
