A few weeks ago I picked up this ratty old trailer. It had surface rust, White paint here,Black there,Somebody painted some Chevy valve covers Orange on one fender and Ford Blue on the other fender. Basically It looked like it was ready for a Mad Max movie. I spent last week Repacking the bearings. I decided to make it all one color. I spent a couple evenings Sanding down the bigger ugly spots, banged out some dents on the fenders etc. Then I hit it with some Rust modfying primer. Then my wife thought it would be neat to have the truck and trailer match. So about 10 Cans of Rustoleum later here is the out come. I cant decide if it looks like the Clampets are in town or if it looks ok. grin Atleast its all one color now.

Clampetts? Just put a rocking chair on it for your wife and buy her a blue tick hound to go with it! Seriously, lloks just fine. Nice to see that you brought something back from "the edge" and have made it a useful article again. Kudos.

A local paint store had a sign @ the counter years ago (prior to computerized paint mixing) that said "Men seeking custom colors must have signed notes from their wives"
