just enough to stand to the side so it throws the tooling at the wall and not me

Todays progress .

This is what 5 minutes of Kleen Strip aircraft stripper did . The yellow is all gone , tomorrow it will get cleaned then painted .

The front panel is tacked in place . Initially it was going to be removeable , but once it is LineX'd its not coming out so I went ahead and welded it in. Between seam sealing the front edge and LineX'ing the backside the front panel should be pretty weather resistant .

The tub is clean and ready for seam sealer . It took a lot of scrubbing to get all of the grinding dust out .

Lastly I started cutting out the trim for the old wheelwells . The plan is to cut and roll the angle around the radius to clean up the edges .

In addition to working on the trailer today I had both J trucks apart and I worked on them as the trailer was drying . It was hot as heck , but Kimbo kept the ice water rolling out to me .

J truck goodness ...

Nice work Beasley.... man the little details sure do add up on that trailer. You're doing it right though, I'm sure the end result is going to be impressive.

The lathe is going to take some getting used to , but I am ok with the mill . With some practice there should be some cool ideas coming to life this fall .


I was busy with work today so I didnt make much progress , but I plan on being out in the garage early tomorrow so that the trailer will be ready for inspection on Friday morning . The good news is I that I have everything I need ready to go in the garage for tomorrow .

At a bare minimum we should be able to make threaded inserts , spacers and blocks . I am excited to start making stuff with the combo , it really opens up what I am able to make in the shop .

Three words: Machined. Aluminum. Legos.

Billy would love those , but I think aluminum legos would be even worse to step on than the plastic ones ...
Todays jeeping so far ...

The Gladiator grille is installed and the hood latch is figured out .

The trailer is seam sealed inside , and on the front filler panel .

The final trim is cut , unfortunately I ran out of angle .

I feel like the trailer is complete enough to go get it inspected tomorrow morning ... wish me luck

Good luck. Is the angle going around the perimeter for a rubicon-type slider?

No the angle is being used to clean up the edge of the wheelwells. Basically it is just a piece of trim . I do have my old Rubi sliders , but I hate to cut them up as I think they will be rare one day .

Before I add armor I want to take it out and use it to see what all is needed . The one piece of armor I do have for it is a set of rear corners . I would like to install them before I take it out on the trail because they are going to be pretty exposed and I am terrible at backing trailers
