Looks good but I have to ask why you put a foot and a strap to bolt it on the trailer. I would of just bolted it through both pieces of angle on the trailer. The wood will rot and you will have to keep an eye on it. I am a certified pipe welder and still hold my card as a pipe fitter and fab stuff up all the time.

I have it bolted to the angle on the trailer and the wood right under the foot I have bedliner sprayed. I see your point but next year I was replacing the wood and will see by then hope to have a bigger trailer and better equipment.

No problem and your work looks good, keep playing around and rethink your design and you will refine it and you might start making them for others. Post a picture when you get it all pretty and painted up.

Well finished up the rack and your right sealcoat should have went with what i was going to do the first time ...the rack works great but Now after looking at it better I'm just going to build the one I was going to do the first time like the green touch one.. I already have the rack sold if I really want to get rid of it so it's all good.Next I should be making up a lift gate ast.

I Think it looks good, just "Dip It" or "Spray It" w/ "Plastic Dip" when you're done. Then you'll Look like "PRO-LAWN" when you pull up to your account, & will have saved $50.... Plus you'll Have the Satisfaction of having "MADE IT YOURSELF!"

I also recommend using 12" long Pieces of of "Coated" Cable Looped, Crimped, and Heat-shrinked, & attached to the pin. The ones that I make look like the "Green Touch Lanyards".... But they Look better than OEM, & last longer.
