Alright, I was finally able to get into the shop today.
We checked the last set of shackles today, and got them completely welded up. All done on that for now, now its time to get the tongue finished, welded up, and then we're going to flip the whole thing over and start placing our 1" square tubing inside of the frame. Now, most people don't do this, but this is how we plan on running all of our wiring, because I personally have ripped out multiple sets of wires dragging a trailer because they weren't secured properly. I suggested the idea to our sponsor, he loved it as gave me the go-ahead. So, that should start later this week hopefully.
Also, we're going to put the axles under it to make sure that everything hangs properly, and that none of our hanger kit pieces are missing. Shouldn't have any problems with that.
Otherwise, we're just going to be doing little things for now, putting on the brake light housings, getting everything ready for running wires later on, building a spare tire mount, license plate mount, etc. We're waiting for summer to start before we go get metal, because my buddy and I that are building this project will both be working in the shop this summer (paid by our school), so if we wait till the first week of summer, we can go down to Ashley Salvage at the same time our Ag Teacher does, and that means we'll get to pull one of the good school trailers (instead of the crappy ones they usually lend out). So, from now until the end of May there wont really be any MAJOR updates.
If you have any questions/suggestions we are more than open to them! We have the general idea of what we're going to do on this project, but since its still so early on, we're willing to listen to anything you think may help!
Thanks for reading!
