    Well! what do you think /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif I'm not sure if I wanted to paint the Blazer my self or pay to have it done /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif so I thought I would practice on the trailer first /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Looks good, but I don't see an enclosure around the painting area. Does everything in your garage now have a slight mist of paint on it? /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    most of the overspray will go on the floor.
    looks pretty good from the picture though.

    The paint over spray was not to bad /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif but the over spray from the bed liner that I sprayed on the bottom of the trailer made a mess on the floor. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    When Tim painted Butch red in the attached garage of his last house, enough paint made it into the house to turn his beige carpet pink. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    DuPont ChromaBase, and for the bottom and front, Color Your Hippo bed liner. Not sure how the bed liner will hold up but I like how it matched the paint /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I used the Dupont on my truck too, I liked how it turned out as well.
    Do you have any information on how your trailer was made ? Did you do it ?
    I'd like some pics on how the frame was brought in to form the tongue. Any pics ?
    That setup is killer ! Nice paint and nice big block !

    All you need to do is cut a small < shape in the top and bottom of the frame and bent it togather and then weld it back togather /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif just don't cut the v shape to big like I did /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
