Hey the trailer turned out great! Did you spray the trailer yourself and what kind of paint did you use? Thanks and again, nice job!

Thanks guy! I used XO Rust red metal primer and XO Rust glass black enamel. I brushed and rolled the paint on, I didn't spray. I did use spray cans for the expanded metal, but that's it. Hope that helped.

You almost have to spray the expanded metal, it is a nightmare to try to brush it on!

Yeah, it could be rolled, I think, but not very efficiently.

Yeah, that's the best way to get it.

Just out of curiosity, roughly speaking and if you don't mind telling...
How much did that set you back?

Just trying to figure something out

The trailer was $500, but regardless,

The decking, electrical, paint, and grinder wheels cost me between $400 and $500.

Plus, I nailed about $500 right after I bought the trailer to get ready for inspection, which included some suspension and axle components.

Basically, altogether, it was easily under $2000, closer to $1500
