    Default Boatmate trailer upgrades / advise

    Well it was time to fix up the trailer as it was starting to look pretty beat up. The lights were dim, the guide posts were vibrating and the wheel wells were bent.

    I've replaced the lights with all new led lights and new wires. Welded the posts and hammered out the wheel wells. It's been primed and painted after a sandblast and sand.

    Thursday new brake lines and check the hubs, bearings and bleed the brakes. She's going to be like new.

    Not sure how to bleed the brakes on this trailer. Any insight would be helpful.

    Also I'm wondering what you guys have used as for materials for the side steps and on top of the wheel wells.

    Apparently it's a 84' Lamborghini countache 5000s. It's at a friends shop. He builds custom hot rods.


    Couldn't have a better friend help work on your boat and trailer.

    yep, the wing has been removed which threw me off, but the wheels should have given it away. I'd take the Cobra over the Lambo.
