So today was the first day of solid boler work. Was able to get the frame dropped, hopefully I can pull it out some time tomorrow.

Pictures are up at the blog.

I've come to the conclusion some folks that are pulling frames from under all molded trailers must have stock in a brick yard

This is going to be a fun rehab to follow. You're off to a good start

Day 2 is done. Was able to get everything ready to weld. Or to start cleaning then weld.

Busy weekend on the boler. Started to weld new steel onto the frame and strengthen everything up. Not quite done yet but we'll on my way to getting it ready for the new axle installed.

Just got back from picking one up off of Paul up in Sebringville, with brakes and all.

More pictures up at our blog.

So was able to get the trailer flipped and started to work on the underside. Had a little hickup on my axle riser blocks. I made them out off 2 inch square, I need to make them from 2X3 instead.

Little set back, but it's all good.

Finally got the new axle installed. Took if for a spin around the block and everything seems good. Jumped up and down on common "break" points and things felt fine.

As always I put a bit more over on the blog.

Got the body dry fitted back on the frame. So far everything is going good.

Super busy working on the boler this past couple weeks.

Getting so much closer to a usable trailer again.

Worked on the taillights today. Not bad for a DIY hack on some cheap LED lighting.

That looks great. I haven't seen one as nice as that and just like a crib before.
