    This next tidbit is some in work pics..... new fenders, holes cut, flush mounted signal lights.... New clevis mount with safety chains, and new tongue..... We also ground the frame down to get some of the rust off.

    First the fenders,

    Here are some progress pics and a pic of my "tow rig"

    Clearly you can see that my tow rig is "reliable" "eco friendly" economical and practical. It has a granola dispenser in the back and the tires are made from recycled styrofoam.

    That's gonna be a whole new trailer man. Nice fender work and I love the way those flush mount lights look with the fender style. I think the tail light is technically required to have a light on the side as well though, am I wrong? My drifter trailer just has the rear light, not the side facing one, and I worry about getting pulled over - it would take a real bastard to pull over for something like that though.

    I believe youre right, but those LEDs "broadcast" a hell of alot of light, im assuming you can see it from the side. I also have two 15 led "strips" that are going to mount under the roller flush against the back. Maybe I can find some slick looking side markers but if not, im really not worried about it......

    In fact........... let me be the first to say this.........

    None of my business really but ..... FYI, the state of Washington does not allow safety chains to be welded on home built trailers. They have to be bolted on. If you need to have the trailer inspect and retitled this may be a problem. If you already have a good title your set.

    Looks good

    good call bfic, i did not know about that and didnt think to look into the laws. i can make it weld tabs on the top and bottom of it and bolt through it so it will be secretly welded and bolted.

    I went thru inspection with my old drifter trailer a few years ago as it came from montana, the land of "why are you at the dmv? go fish idiot!" apparently, it didn't require a license there or title there. It is also set up with chains to welds. The boat was on the trailer. I mention this because the inspector thought she was the 2nd prettiest boat he or she had ever seen come thru, damnit, who's 1st? :p The inspector mentioned the welds to me as it is a requirement, but did not fail me on the inspection. He or she did reinforce to me to bolt on as the strength is significantly better than a weld. He or she also did not ding me for the lack of side trailer lights which were also mentioned but not written up. It took over 30 days, it may have been 60, from the time I scheduled the inspection and my appointment day - it aint no drive thru in that regard, appointment only, and I bet you need one to re-title it, so call sooner rather than later and request your spot in line.

    Cheers.

    Well, I just have to change owners, It has a title and after calling htem yesterday, I just need to bring it to any DOL. As far as bolt on chains being stronger than weld on clevis mounts, I call B.S. on that one, But the DMV and I can agree to disagree.
