Those C channels where the wood fits between at the top and bottom of the trailer are usually the worst, as water will sit in either end and will destroy the frame and wood. Might be good to drill some small 1/8" holes along the bottom at the back end? Oh and I had a hell of a time getting that last board in there! We used a 2x4 to bend the board, but it still took us a couple hours, Now I would just cut the flat metal piece that is welded in after the boards go in, then weld it back.

Brad, instead of making money on that big job I lost, I decided to spend it instead.
Lol that happens to me everyday if I am not working I am spending! If had had a place I would offer to come down here but our garage currently has my dads truck and moms car. The place where I got my trailer stored would work but there is no lights/power

That's a good idea. I'll keep that in mind whenever I replace the decking.

Thanks for throwing that out there. I'm sure I can find a spot, I just don't really want to move it when it's got wet paint.

Here's stage 1, completed as of 5:30 PM. It's not perfect, but the trailer is 10 years old. It was in pretty bad shape before, as you can see. Can't wait to get the final coats on in the next few days.
