My FB/EK trailer

Post by Blacky »

Been wanting to build this for years , finally bit the bullet and started on it with me mate John the metal magicians help a week or so ago .........

The donor -

And this -

End result will be something like this -

Early days yet, have built a new frame using the bits from the old trailer, quarters and guards are at the sandblasters , we have mocked it up and think we know how it is going to come together - will be a bit longer than the photoshopped pic so the club gazebos fit in there comfortably, will also be equipped with eskys , BBQ, etc for club duties ImageImage
Watch this space !!

Nice job. I was going to suggest you consider a massive tub job but that kind of defeats the purpose of a trailer.
