Thanks guys 👍.
I try to think some of the things I sell are a building block to something else, maybe a bit bigger and better.
Here's a pic of what comes next.
Just a 10 footer.

Well I finally bought a mini mill to add to my tool collection. Been looking for a used one forever - bought this one new.

You'll have fun with that. So much of what we need to make for our cars can be made on that and it won't take up the space a big one does. My son had a little Harbor Freight combination tool. He always surprise me with what he could do with it. That machine made a lot of car and motorcycle parts. He used it to help rebuild a much larger  more precision lathe. New tools are fun.

just doing a late nite troll on ebay........spotted a 1933 Chevrolet MASTER right front NON welled fender for auction.

Seller in CALIF says no shipping.......IDIOT

If you know somebody in calif who can go pick the fender up for you , great, then figure on transporting to you.

Went to a Interstate dealer today. Well made trailers. I liked the "Victory" series had welded square steel doors, super tough but most of thiers were way too tall compared to the LOOK brand I've checked out.
The quote was higher than my budget to get one built with what I wanted.

Went back to the LOOK dealer and theirs fits my measurements I wanted and had the dropped axle to fit in the shop.
Have another quote from another dealer in southern Utah that fits my budget (same brand) Gonna travel down next weekend and "hopefully" place my order.

I have till May to get another trailer and build the inside. 😰
Trip already planned. 😁

He changed ad auction text from when I spotted it.  I get a laugh out of these clowns who say NO SHIPPING pick up here, then hour later decide maybe that's not a good idea, I should make shipping available so I can sell it.

Back in the '60s when the original wave of tiny houses swept the hippy movement people were building some very cool trucks, busses, and trailers. One of mu friends put a 20' '50s trailer on a '36 Chevy flatbed as a cabover camper. He put a 292 six in it and a two speed axle. It went down the road fine. Another friend built a shingled house on hid 3/4 ton long bed 4X4 Ford. It could be removed at a camp site.
I only mention this because with components from modern motorhomes, trailers, and boats along with  your old world skills that trailer is a blank canvas. Give it some long thought.

Yep. It's almost done.
That shop had the nerve to re-use the original pads and trim-sticks  >:(. We wont do a top on these unless it gets all new hardware. Most of these cars have already been molested a few times. Ain't worth doing it without hardware.

Already been thinking long and hard on the trailer.
Even have a floor plan drawn up. Also a tiny wood stove may be installed one day.
Once I order, I'll have a few weeks till it's built. More time to think.😉
