I painted the trailer with Dupont Chroma base with clear coat, I used 3m plastic
adhesion promoter and Nason sealer under the paint. The spoiler is the same one Tommy boy has on his trailer. I added chrome wheels and painted the hub silver with Krylon spray paint.

So, where did you find the chrome wheels, and how much were they?

The Chrome wheels were purchased from Harbor freight .com $42.99 each, they come with tires mounted. So I mounted one of the of the white wheels under rear of trailer for a spare if needed. I purcased a jack from the local Habor Freight store to jack up trailer to change tire. The tounge jack on the trailer was made from 1 inch piece of black pipe painted silver.Hope this helps with your trailer

Very nice! :thumbup:


Did you do any sanding before you used the adhension promoter?

Also, did you extend the tongue?

Front runner I was told by local paint suppler to use a gray scuff pad which I purchased from them. They said to wash the plastic with hot soapy water then rinse, scuff wash again. I also used 3m plastic cleaner before adhesion promoter.
When scuffing I saw some of the texture getting thinner in spots so I sand lightly with 180 grit, 220grit, and 320grit on the main box so there would be no texture.

Great looking trailer!:yes1: I like the spoiler idea. I'm almost finished with my HF with Sears 20. Hope to post some pics soon.

I heard from the manager of one of the HF stores that this trailer was going to be discontinued, if it wasn't already.
That rumor was in the air when I bought mine, too--in October 2009! When I mentioned it to the manager (in Spokane WA), he knocked $100 off the price--$299, assembled. But I see people are still buying them. :)
