Thanks Rob. I think it is lifting very well now. I tried one more test using 7.2V just to see if it would still lift the same weight. It does it without a wimper! Of course the speed is much slower but that may be a decent compromise over running a dedicated battery for the trailer itself.

I'm finally making some headway on the second one of these I am building. Does this look OK so far Alex?

Well I spent a few hours welding things together on this one today. I still have to finish the front part of the fenders and some welding here and there but the tub is nearly finished.

Glad you like it Alex. I think I have the tub almost finished now unless you have any other ideas? I thought I would take a picture of the two side by side to show the style differences. I know a few people have been interested in this style of trailer so I am trying to get myself set up to take some orders soon....

Yes I think they are turning out OK for sure! I'm glad you like how yours looks Alex. I am really happy with how the ladders turned out.

Yes the ladders and the way you shaped that front apron on mine just adds SO much detail! I'm pumped!

For me to be able to just send you a couple pics and give you just a little bit of direction and have you turn it into this is just amazing on your part! You certainly have a gift!

Well, I think I have had this project on and off my work bench(tailgate) for nearly 10 months now. I have spent most of the last two days finishing up the last details and I can now happily say that it is ready to go! Initially this was supposed to be powder coated but the owner has since sold the trailer to a buddy so that we can work on something else together and now it will be polished. I'm not sure how much work it will take to shine this up and it certainly would have been my preference to have it coated but to each his own. If he can pull it off I'm sure it will look great. Anyway, enough babbling... Here it is all ready to go short of one last cleaning before it gets boxed up...

I had some tailgate parts done on a waterjet for these half round tubs. I wasn't sure what to expect but I think they will workout great! Now I just need to cut out a sheet the same shape and weld it on!

I got a tailgate assembled for Alex's trailer. I really like the water jetted parts! It really made my life a lot easier and it looks nice too!(I think) Now if I could just win the lotto....

This one will be powder coated black. I am looking forward to see how that looks. I think it will look nice with the silver anodized frame.

Unless DieselKid has some last requests, I think this one has finally made it to the finish line. Alex will be adding lights to the rear panel and such so that will really set it off. I am really happy with the way this turned out.

Quick walk around video. I wish it was sunny but that's just not in the cards today. http://youtu.be/SQPm74P4fRc

Photos to come.
