Thanks Joel. Your project back in 2010 was one of our early inspirations for getting this done and was probably the reason we chose powder coating over paint. I remember referencing your reassembly photos when we were planning color schemes.

Dad got the trailer registered with the DMV. It has a permanent trailer license plate for the first time. Had to be registered as home made because of a lack of historical paperwork, but that seems to be the usual for these when trying to register them.

We took the trailer out on an admittedly ambitious 75 mile round trip shakedown run to pick up a desk. It pulled much smoother than I have ever recalled. Whether that was due to properly packed bearings or smaller tires than usual, it's hard to say. Simply having canvas on the tailgate chains was a major improvement in noise. The only real mishap was that one of the tail light bulbs went out randomly and it's hard to find correct bulbs to fit the model A tail lights. It seems to be an 1156 bulb, but it's a shorter bulb than the standard 1156.
