Today we accomplished:
1) Reinforcing the trailer with steel beams, we were able to rent a welder from Home Depot.
4) Painted Rustoleum on the new weld spots to protect from corrosion.
This was my first time ever welding, and I loved it! Sam and Kyle did the majority of the welding but by the end I took over and made the last few welds. It turned out great and all the welds look really good.
Next step is to finish painting the trailer, put on some lights, and take it to the DMV to get a home-made trailer title. Because we changed the weight capacity and structure of the trailer, we will need to get it re-licensed.
