I was just going over the belly and the sides where the fenders had been mostly.  Cleaning up the gunk and flaky stuff before blasting it.  The earlier picture with my wire cup is just where I got carried away.  That part was coming clean so well I just kept going for a bit.  Only as far as the picture shows.  

Thanks for the advice on the flap wheel.  I will look into that.  I have the kind that has the "flaps" laid down and I use that on the welds.  Never tried the kind where the flaps are standing up.  Is that the kind you are referring to for sanding?

For now, just going to blast and paint the original wheels.  Too many projects that require $$.  So that's one place I'll have to save money by sticking with what's there.

I did the same on the wheels.  Part of the beauty of these little trailers is that one person can man handle them on level ground and they can be tucked into small space when you are in the field and not towing them.  Bigger wheels - wider or taller - may change those things.

How much did it run you on sandblasting and primer on the frame and tub, if you don't mind me asking?  Looks good, btw! Thumbs Up

I'm married to one of the owners, so I got a pretty sweet deal.  :)

She just told me they would give a "not to exceed" quote of $500 if someone called asking for what I just had done. That's blast and prime.

If I was closer to you, I WOULD! But I'm afraid I'm pretty far from you.  Darn it!!!!  Thanks for the offer, though.

Sometimes it's baby steps, as frustrating as that can be.  But I did get a few small items blasted and primed today.

Since I'm welding a new back wall on the trailer, I need the tube stock that is at the top of the walls.  Pardon my ignorance, but I don't know what to order.  Meaning, the size.  I did order a length of what I thought was right, but it ended up being really thick walled and smaller diameter than I thought I was getting.  So I either ordered wrong, or they sent me the wrong item.  I'm really going with it was my fault.  So can anyone tell me what size tube stock is used around the top of the M416 trailer?  TIA
