I needed to get spark off of her trailer for two reasons. One is to scrape and repaint her bottom. As you can see the years have not been kind to her paint and it is literally peeling off on it's own. The second reason is to rebuild and upgrade the trailer. This will require a lot of scraping, wire brushing, sanding, and paint. If I am honest, it is not in bad shape for being 6 years older than I am, but I certainly hope I will look better than it when I am it's age.
All done with 2x4s cut to fit and screwed together to form a very sturdy structure for her to sit on. As the trailer slipped forwards as I was trying to jack up the bow, I had to pick it up and wiggle her back, so I know the structure is quite sound.
The trailer is not so sound.
Best described as "Rust with white", I have a couple days of work ahead of me to get it all ship shape and Bristol fashion.
I definitely need one of those front and rear facing dash cams. in the short 5 mile trip home I had two near incidents. One from a guy in a VW golf who did not even notice the trailer until it was almost too late. He almost centre punched his grill on the end roller. The other was a pickup truck that went around me as I turned left off of the road. I guess he forgot that trailers swing wide, he almost lost his door to the end roller too.
