Great looking trailer.
 
Can you post some more pictures of the front showing the tongue from the sides and the hitch/safety chains and a front on shot so I can see the fronts of the frame corners.

Let me know if these work.




There is a bend in the Fulton that I need to straighten.

Here is the Arrow 41, 217 and a wheel cleaned up.


Ignore those ugly Phillips head screws.  They are temporary until I find a suitable slotted head like the original had.

If there are small dents, I leave them, because I'm a little dented up too.

Almost done.  Just have to wire it up and add a passenger side light.

Finished it up today, just have to get it inspected for a new title and VIN.  

I unfortunately had to add front and rear marker lights and reflectors, and a passenger side tail light for the State.   Im a little frustrated with that because you can't title a trailer as anything, but a trailer, regardless of age, antique or classic etc..  In my opinion, the trailer looses some of its character when it gets modernized.

Thank You

.....A word of advise to my fellow Pennsylvanians:

Don't buy a trailer in Pennsylvania with out a title if you want it on the road,  what a pain!     Censored

I've heard it's the same pain and expense in Texas.

I  bent some top bows from wood lath I got at Lowes for $10.    Found this canvas on Ebay.  Almost looks like it was made for it size wise.   I just have to get another sheet to make and sew a front and rear panel on.  I hope the wrinkles work out after it heats up.

Looks great! I've been looking for a set of the top bow metal brackets for mine... Might just have to fab a set of shorty bows if I don't find some soon.
