horse trailer restoration.
Just got given a 1977 circle j 2 horse trailer. Needs alot of restoration work but considering the age its not in bad shape at all. floor is pretty solid and it was taken care of most of its life.
I just wanted to see if I can get any tips from anyone who has done such a project. I need to get this thing sanded down all around(axles and frame too) and painted. Theres a few spots where itll need bondo on the body, some sheet metal can be replaced. but its pretty solid over all. Got a fiberglass topper(best part about it!) so any tips? my friend suggested wet sanding with 200 grit paper. its probably alot for me to take on but I know i'll have help.
The brake on the left is also sticking, and the lights dont work, im assuming the brake is probably rusted and stuck and the lights probably been chewed up by something, gotta find the wires and see how they look all around.. it has tires but they need replacing, dry rotted but they got home ok.... alriighttt throw tips my way! This is going to be my rig and i want to get it road worthy by late september latest!!
