:angry1: state DMV has me pissed off today . . . sent my trailer paper work back for vin # application cause i was missing 1 form . i tryed 7-8 times before hand to get them on the phone before i sent it all out and make sure i had it all first time but no answers or returns of calls . and the local DMV offices have zero clue on how to do custom vin# stuff like this as its all threw the main office in the capitol .

mother f*ckers had my phone # as they sad we need it to ask you questions or get in contact with you but they never called me 1 dam time the lazy bas*ards .

there is no cheat sheet form to show you exactly what you need to have . you have to basicly just wing it unless you have done it before or know someone who has .


Last couple of times I've had to deal w/ the 'dmv' I've had better luck dealing w/ the independent 3rd party companies. Not sure if you have those there or not but for me the couple of dollars extra I pay is more than worth it.

We always joke that if you don't like the answer you get from the DMV, hang up and call back in 15 minutes. You'll get a different person and a different answer.

She got used the other day for her first full day and did 6 driveways .

Super happy with layout of thd parts and even with a half full tank its hardly wanting to wander all over like the old smaller trailer ALWAYS did . .

Cant wait to build the new transport / bulk storage only trailer and put the 500 gal tank on it and get it off the old worn out early 80's dodge flatbed .

Oh we fixed it now . Tie in support plate in the rear were it let go and ground out the crapy weld they did before .

Then each side got feet to support the middle of the tank area to help take the load off each end .

Lets try this again .

so after doing lots of HOT tar work we ( joe & my self ) said we need the hot tar melter to tip thats on the right front of the trailer to help clean outs .

so i ordered up some HD hinges with grease fittings and a spring latch for when its in the lock position . this will let us tip the box to drain out 99% of the hot tar for helping in later clean outs you HAVE TO DO and make our life better .

pics to come but a simple mod no the less .

Going in the AM to check over and buy a dump trailer with a rusted out box but 4 new tires and battery with working NAME BRAND hydro pump . Its priced less than what i can buy the axles and wheel tires for .

Plan if we drag it home is cut up the box . Swap the hydro ram for a shorter one . Install 1 of the 2 new to us tanks we got this summer . Then its a bulk sealer hauler trailer .

Drug this home this morning .

Its almost new from 2008 but the original owner left stuff in it for LONG periods of time and it let the sides and floor rust out super fast .

Plan it ditch the box and install a sealer tank . Then its done as i only need this one for a tanker not full on work unit .

So weird being from my neck of the woods (or lack of woods) seeing moss growing on vehicles/trailers.

That moss will bite in and grow in all sorts of stuff . . .

Seen some come off easy and if it stays to long you can pull up blacktop when you try and remove it with a pressure washer .

Stuff is tuff to deal with thats for sure .

edit for crazy weird spelling mix up from my phone :dunno:

Less than 1hr and i have popped it apart this far and took a air hammer with a button head to the floor . I have 2 5gal buckets of rust on the shop floor now .

This is all from the original owner leaving crap in it to hold water for long periods of time.

What a shame they did this . . But there loss my gain .

Took some HEAT to the hydro ram pins today along with the air hammer and got the ram off .

Then i dug out the 525 gal tank and set it on the frame for its first test fit .

It come out good size to frame . But i knew it would need to be set down in . And a few measurements show i can drop it 14-16" down in .

Should make a NICE tanker only trailer .

picked this puppy up the other day . its lightly used from a spray rig for sealer work but should clean up just nice . it will hold up to 175 feet of 3/4" hose .

the plan is to use a graco fireball style air over pump to feed me sealer threw this unit and keep us from having to use buckets all day as much . this length of hose would get us in to 90-95% of the driveway jobs we work on day to day . only going to pump the sealer and NOT spray .
