Is it for distilling Lou ? Looks like a lot of stainless ...

Trailer is on hold for eight weeks , I am stuck on a bad job and the hotel doesnt have a 220 plug

I should get three weeks off when I get home , by the time I hit the road again it should be ready for paint .

Yes, check out the mason jars in the pic. As soon as the weather lifts a little bit here I will be painting.

I sneak out there after they go to bed , and they also end up playing in front of the garage while I work . I wouldnt change a thing even if I could.

Tonight my brother and I got to work on finishing the trailer wiring. I hate messing with 12V thankfully he is Nuclear engineer so this is cake work to him .


All of the wiring is inside of conduit so that it lessens the chance of something popping up on the trail and grabbing the harness .

And we have tail lights ! Everything is wired up with plugs so that it is easy to change the tail lights out in the future if the need arises . From everything I have read on the NC DOT website I dont need side markers as the trailers gvwr is going to be under 4000 lbs . Hopefully the trailer will pass the inspection and I can get tags on it soon .

Looks like we work at the same pace Looks good , what all is required to get it licensed down there ?

Progress !

This is the wiring that came out from under the Jeep . It had over 30 splices and it was a fire waiting to happen . So all of that came out and this is the newly rebuilt trailer tap / tail light harness .

The new harness is Occam approved I still cant believe how bad the old harness was , and how simple it ended up .

After all that wire was pulled and the new harness was fished in this was the reward .

We have lights ! Another day of welding / patching and I will start the body work . The goal is to have it shot in an epoxy primer and all welding complete by the end of next week . Oh yeah , theres the whole licensing thing to deal with too .

Thats about the same we have to pay figuring in the exchange rate . We dont get to self assess though , thats nice . Our assessment is done for us by the state highway patrol then the license bureau .

Well why I ask is this: I was wondering why you didn't run the wiring down that center tube? You could have it enter out the bottom from your conduit next to the receiever thingy, then exit out that rear crossmember behind the axle.. Just curious?
