My trailer used to have homemade fenders & expanded metal grating for running boards, so I cut all that out, welded in 3/4" angle to lay the aluminum checkplate(diamond plate) on. As I am painting it on the trailer, I had to get the fenders & running boards in place. I also welded a plate for the jack in, & a spare tire mount(didn't take pics)

Oh ya, it will be painted within a month...Just painting a few small parts for my chopper tomorrow.
I bought a different sanding block earlier this year to finish my boat. Hard foam, should work good.

Trailer looks nice. I can never figure out why guy's spend thousands on their boats and have a piece of sh*t trailer to haul it around on. I think a cool trailer compliments the boat as much as the boat it self.

Let's see some pics of your cool trailers you pull your dream machines on.
