    Refurbished trailer project

    A neighbour down the road was selling an old trailer for $150. I started using it as is for utility work around the property and even moved quite a bit of firewood off the beach . Somewhere along the way, however, I got the bug to shine it up a bit.

    I replaced all the old wooden sides with 3/4" pressure treated plywood and gave it the green/yellow treatment. I did not have the patience to stencil on any John Deere logos so some JD license plates will have to do. The 3pth even tilts it up enough to be a "partial" dump trailer

    One of the neighbours walking by said: "John Deere would be proud".

    Make me chuckle every time I look at it.

    Well that there is right purdy!

    How did the axles and hubs come out? New grease and a repack maybe? Was the wiring good or did you replace that?
