I got the lights wired on my CJ3B tonight. 
I have ordered bearings and seals. Should be here next week.  I will get them replaced over Labor day weekend before I tow her 1600 miles to Jefferson City and Back!   Sorry no room for anymore towable items!   Can't believe

Jamie,
 
Based on your hitch casting, front frame rail caps, angled tongue supports, and "C" style rear shackles your trailer is between 10000 and 16271 making it either a 46 or 47 but we have no proof on years of production so this is mearly a speculation.
 
Now help me narrow something down between the other 6270 trailers and we could get closer.

I finished my side rails this weekend.  I made them out of a Texas Mesquite!  Soon as I figure out how I am going to make or purchase the hardware for the bows, I will start working on bending them.

Have a extra set of hardware laying around, drop me a note!  J

I was out of town for a couple days and the Postman brought me a top while I was gone!   Overall I am pleased except it is a too long.  It is my fault not Black Dog Design. They followed the pattern.    I will have to pick up some rope tomorrow to see if I can get it taught.  If not I may need to send it back to take a 1" off.  If you are going to use my pattern, I recommend that if you make it 1 1/2" shorter.  I had a 3 in overlap past the rolled edge and it was too long.

Wow, Jamie, even though is a little long on the sides and back and front I would venture to say that it looks GREAT!  That's how I want mine to look like.  GREAT JOB on the trailer Clap

Is there any way to raise your sides higher to compensate for a little of the over length?

It should not shrink.  The top is made out of a product called Sumbrella Plus. They use it to make awnings and boat covers.  The spacer idea should work fine.

Art, when did the cover for the old MBT floor drain disappear?  I don't see that on the the data list.  Is that a clue that can help?

Interesting, so my trailer with three tie downs on the side and the floor drain cover in the floor may be right at that transition period.

(Sorry for the hi-jack Jamie!, just thought it may help place your trailer on the time line)

I ended up putting 1" spacers in the side rail pockets and it raised my cover up enough to work.   I towed the trailer 150 miles today at 70 miles an hour.   Top preformed extremely well. I am very pleased . If you use my pattern have them shorten it 11/2". The overlap is too long.
