Trailer all apart, and a teaser!
With my hectic work schedule recently, work has slowed to a crawl, but I did get more done today. As of now, Spark's trailer is completely apart and ready to be sent off for welding, strengthening, and extending.
The rear box section, where the axle hooks onto, will be scrapped. At 54 year old, I do not trust the springs or axle itself. The new section will be built of C-Channel with an Axle-less suspension to clean things up, add ground clearance, and make repairs easier. The central spine will be lengthened two feet, and flanged where it bolts to the box instead of clamped.
Now for the grisly stuff:
At the very rear of the trailer, where it sits beneath Spark's transom, will be the license plate, a third brakelight/reflector, reversing light, and a rear fog. Yes, I am wiring this trailer up for 7 pin to better fit my Land Rover Discovery's trailer wiring setup. I do not have the reversing or rear fog lights yet, but I do have the rear brake, It is a reproduction piece for a vintage English Motorcycle. I think it will be quite stylish!
