I have the toungue off the trailer at this point. Took the winch bracket off as I will use it for the new toungue. I have a 3" by 4" by 10' piece of tube steel on the way. To replace it. The old toungue was only 8' so this will allow me to move the boat forward a little so the transom boards will be roughly 1" past the transom.

The winch bracket is now prepped and primed. Paint will follow tomorrow and then I will mount the new winch

I put a coat of paint on winch bracket. Its not going to be a fast project working a lot of hours. I am waiting on my replacement tube for the toungue to come in and then the trailer overhaul will continue. Boat hopefully will be painted by end of week.

My boat is painted and drying as we speak! Going to be cutting vynil lettering and installing later today pics to follow this evening. I am contemplating using a product called deck restore on the decking. Anyone had experience with this product on boats? I used it on wood decks off of homes and it works well for that.

Lol! I actually am working a lot of hours, my boat was in the paint booth at my job and I couldn't help myself! Most of the other work will be evening/weekend hours only. :-D

I have the 3"by 4" tube that I am using as a new toungue for the trailer. I welded the tilt bracket on to it and then ground everything down.
Next was a coat of rust-oleum rusty metal primer. Tomorrow I will topcoat it and attach the hitch coupler to the front.
Hopefully have the whole trailer painted and wired by the weekend.

Well, I put the new hitch coupler on and installed new toungue on trailer. Next step is to wire wheel/grind trailer very well, prime and then paint. I then will need lights, bunks, saftey chains, trailer jack and mabye some side bunks

After much grinding and using a wire wheel to clean the rust off my trailer, it was clean enough to prime.
I primed it with rust-oleum rusty metal primer.
Going to let it sit overnight and tomorrow will topcoat. Here are a few pics of primed trailer

Looks good. I used rusted metal primer on a jeep frame for a rock crawler i built once, works really good on surface rust and bare metal. You're doing great so far, I wish I could tig weld aluminum. I used to tig for a living in my late teens on steel and stainless, never did learn aluminum. Don5 have a tig either. LOL

Thanks! I have had good luck with the rust-oleum primer on previous projects. As far as tigging aluminum, its not fun at all!
