    Trailer is almost ready, axle and towing unit with jockey wheel back on the chassis.
    Now looking to cut some planks for a new floor and there will be some work on the rear hatch as this was really the worst bit on the trailer .
    Will rivet a new plate on to the original angled iron construction of the rear hatch.
    Still had some new made mudguards from my 1st trailer project that I can use for the moment but looking to repair the original mudguard witch where on the trailer .

    So it looks I can get this trailer ready for next War & Peace show , will be a nice tow behind the Bedford QL.

    Just some extra work on the trailer , rear hatch in to paint and the census numbers painted on the rear and the sides . Made the missing handbrake rods, on this type of trailer you only had a parking brake.
    Now the repair off the mudguards and some easy removable lighting on the back and we are ready .

    The repaired and painted mudguards are back in place , I am happy that it was still possible to reclaim the original mudguards.
