Well, i apologize for the lack of updates!! Finally got our axles in yesterday, so we can finally get it rolling! Best part is that my friend and i that are building this trailer are both working at our school shop this summer, so we can work on this project as we go!

Soo, hopefully we'll be able to get tanks to start with the pits pretty soon! We'll let yall know when it happens!

Thanks for reading!

Btw here's a pic of our latest puchase sheet from Quality Trailer Supply. This includes everything up to date that we now have! Also, post #1 with a running total has been updated!

Unfortunately i dont have any updates recently! Im working at the same shop where we're building this, but we have had so much paid work to do lately that we havent had time to work on our trailer!

Keeping an eye out for tanks, but havent found what we need yet.

Ill update again as soon as i have info! Hopefully itll be sooner rather than later!

Thanks for reading!

Any suggestions or comments are more than welcome! I know i tend to make mistakes, over/under think things!
Thanks!
I would go with as thick of a steel plate as I could find to go for the floor/deflector .

A really good grill should be very thick IHMO and acts as a heat sink sorta, to help keep the heat nice and even for when you have to open the lid .

I am debating putting bricks under my deflector to act as heat sinks/retainers .

Well, small update today in the grand scheme of things but pretty big seeing as nothing has gone on in a while!

Finally got around to hanging axles today while i was waiting for the project i was working on to cool. Called up my sponsor to let him know, that way we can get a set of tires and wheels from his companys warehouse. Hope to have it rollin on its own ASAP that way we can switch bays again in August after the summer work is over. All in all, pretty good day!

Will post photos when my phone quits being a PITA.

Thanks for reading!
