    Project fix up rotten trailer .


    CALIV210
    • Year: 1994 Brand: Other (include in description) Model / Trim: Zieman Cost: $500-$999

    So I've been helping a good friend work on his new to him Chapparal Deck Boat . Getting the servicing up to date and cutting and polishing the get coat and digging deep into the trailer . The trailer was rotten in a few places and needed updating . Its been ground down to expose all the cancer and remove it and new steel welded in its place it was a big task but we got it done . We added some uprights/guides put some tie down points for the rear straps , replaced all the brakes from the surge assembly back including lines and even changed the idler hubs to match the new drums .  We also added a new crank/winch new chains replaced the wood and re-carpeted the bungs the roller on the front and LED light kit to it and have the diamond plate getting powder coated black for the fenders and steps .  He sprayed the paint with an airless it turned out really good for a couple of dudes working on the gravel. lol I even got hurt in the middle of the project and delayed the whole thing Thankfully it was during the welding process and a friend of ours came through and like a stud and handled it for us . Here is some before and after pics .

    @CALIV210 - You got it!

    Nice rebuild.  That's a lot of work when you get to replacing steel.    Lots of modern features and it looks brand new!   Nice job.

    Thank you !! I wish I could take all the credit but it was definitely a group effort.
