thanks for the thumbs up Lise , my pictures don't do it justice ,if you go too dryland storage sechelt Facebook page theres some excellent photos AL at dryland worked a lot of bumps and bruises out of that old 40 year old fibreglass there is still lots to do but my main concern was getting the trailer sealed up ,I hadn't planned on a complete paint job ,but oh well its done now.

I think the Biggar is one neat trailer. I've been in Marina's several times. Fabulous job

Wow, looks great. To bad there is a ferry between us, someone on the Island was looking for a paint job. Still think I will re-post this to our Facebook page. Good paint jobs can be hard to find and the ferry cost might be well worth it.

Come show it off at our bolerama in June (9-11) in Nanaimo at Living forest.

It looks awesome!!! It's amazing how much different it looks. How much of a lift did you do? Also, did you increase the wheel / tires size? Great job.

thanks Claire ,Donna, I made a small mistake telling people tp go to dryland storage sechelt ,its dryland marine sechelt Facebook ,if AL decides to give up fibreglass repairs he can aways go into photography. those are the pictures you want to see. just remember time is money so try and do as much of the work yourself ,unfortunately for me because of an accident I was in years ago I had to get AL TO do 99.9 % of the work but the rest I hope to manage myself. as for the island in June I would love to show up with the Biggar , could you talk to the ferry corporation for me ? that is a six hundred dollar round trip. that buys a lot of fuel for my dodge , I guess I shouldn't complain though considering what it cost me to have the Biggar's door hinges reproduced in stainless steel,Now for the Biggar question.can anyone tell me who the previous owner was ,I have already figured it out but if someone is bored with nothing to do they can do some research on the website as there are pictures of this trailer.I am going to attach the photos that have the clues maybe the previous owner will figure it out.Click image for larger version

I'm going to guess. Was it J.J.'s?

bingo Donna D, this was johns trailer ,I believe in one of his posts he wondered where it ended up now he will know, as for your question Clayton, the trailer now sits on 3500#axles complete with new brakes, bearing, and drums, I had them derated to 2500# , it is lifted about 5 inches and the tires are 205/75/r15 tires with a D rating mounted on aluminum rims. changing the tire on a Biggar with a 14" tires is difficult,with 15" impossible, it's also getting difficult to find 14" with a D rating.
