Can We Fix It? Yes, We Can!

To borrow from Bob The Builder...

Here is the progress today. Boards purchased. Old boards removed. Rust scraped. Rustoleum Gloss White partially applied; ran out after 4 cans, need more. Do-it-yourself Herculiner roll-on bed-liner purchased for putting on trailer walls.

Considering the rot I found at the back of the trailer and around a few screws in the boards was the worst of it, we’re probably doing a job that didn’t quite need to be done yet. However, the few holes that I have found and the amount of rust that I have encountered makes me think that better now than after a serious problem shows up. Once we get this all done then it’s time to tackle the wiring, but we’ll leave that to the professionals.

Sunday is a day off for the most part as we are heading into town for a Mariners game.

Thanks for stopping by my blog; and for the link. You have your work cut out for you on this project;looks like you are doing a good job. We did ours 12 years ago and need to redo it.

Wow! I am impressed! That is quite a job. It will be like a brand new trailer!

Goodness, what a project! Looks like you are doing a great job. It always scares me to see the wooden floor of a trailer, I always wonder how that holds the weight of thousand pound horses and the alternative does not sound pretty. When I was a teenager I read something in a book or magazine once about a horses leg going through a trailer floor and the image has never left me for some reason!

I can't wait to see the finished project!

PG, I have the same nightmares! Of course, I have also had a horse kick a trailer open on the freeway...’nuff said.

I have the same image in my head as ponygirl! Even though I bought my trailer new, I always worry about those floors and picture my horses' hooves going through and scraping to nubs on the street!
