Default project: budget trash trailer build

so far the only pic i have from the craigslist ad, but got this little gem this morning, this is gonna be a budget trash trailer build, so far its pretty solid trailer, no rust, has a vintage model A axle, and wheels on it... so far is has been a great build, and what did i pay for this you ask..... how does the tune of FREE sound???





gonna run some stringers on the front and back to beef up the deck a little but, throw some sides on it, and a swing gate on it, and call it done, also she is in need of some tires, the current ones wont hold air, and they are probally original firestone 6.00-16 bias belted tires, i drug it home a few miles, and it rode alright, but anything about 30 MPH it felt like it had square wheels on it, and i'm gonna also swap out the 1 7/8 ball coupler to a 2" coupler, gonna run new wiring, and put some LED's on it

you should make a rat rod bed out of it......paint those wires red, get a fat whitewall and a model A truck bed w/o the fenders, and of course......slam it!!! looks like a fun project dude, and good job haggling down the price!! HAHA
