Default restored the snowmobile trailer! (lots of pics)

so basically we've had this trailer sitting around for quite some time now in need of some TLC.. the whole front beam support was rotted out, so we welded in a new piece of 1/4" square metal. (forgot to take pics) we decided it was a perfect project to test out the new harbor freight gravity feed HVLP spray gun!

Prepped:




The HVLP $15 Spray gun (ran at 50 psi)


My dad taking the honors (not using the correct breathing gear)


Bottom side complete:


Pretty good shine for a 15 year old trailer out in the elements 24/7 (Oil based Rustoleum high gloss black) 5% hardner and some mineral spirits


another glamor shot


Flipped right side up


Complete:






Decided to respray the trailer for the lawnmower (why not)




not bad for a quick scuff up


Pleased with the results of the $15 spray gun! paint came out pretty good! going to be using this gun to coat my rangers frame eventually.
