Hello Folks:

Not to revive this post or anything but just getting back at the person who kept asking me what color I had given my trailer.  I FINALLY FOUND IT!!!!  It was in one of my OLD invoices from the powder coating company.  

The official color is BENGAL RED Thumbs Up

So, Sir, if you are still out there and happened to see this UPDATED post, this one is for you.  Sorry, I could not remember if it was on this post that you mentioned it or some place else.  All I know is that I could not remember the color.  I remember you telling me that you wanted this color for your trailer.  Well, better late than ever, as they say.

Thanks,

Joel

Hi Joel,

Great job on this rebuild.  It's obvious you took a great deal of time to get everything right and it looks fantastic.  

In looking through your posts, it looks like you replaced all the bolts, ubolts, shackles, bushings, etc.  I'd like to follow your lead with my recently purchased Bantam trailer…any recommendations on where to buy all that hardware?  Did you just source it from Home Depot or did you purchase it online?

Thanks,

Brian in San Francisco

Even though I love to use JB Weld I found out, through trial and error, that JB Weld does melt in an oven of 350 degrees.  When I took my trailer to get blasted and powder coated I had sealed all the little holes with JB Weld.  Well, they all came out of the oven without the JB Weld on it.  So it did not work out the way I expected it to work out.  But you can try it if you want to.

Just my two cents worth....

Thanks for your response and for the info.  Like I said, I have not decided whether I'm going to sell them or not but will let you know if I do decide to sell them ok. 

Joel

P.S.  Who is Dennisanvil and what type of hooks are you referring to?  I'm just curious.

INQUIRING QUESTION.  These are the original chains that came off my Bantam T3C trailer.  How much do you think these chains are worth.  I have had them sandblasted and powder coated black.  I HAVE NOT DECIDED whether I want to sell them yet but would like to know how much they would be worth.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Joel,
Yeah I have some work to do on it.  But I won't be doing it for a while.
The floor is not to bad.  There is a couple of pin holes so far.  I am sure sand blasting will bring out a lot more of the issues.  Original color was red so I plan to stick with that.
Gotta get a Willys up and going to pull it with though.
Enough of me hijacking your trailer thread.Big smile

Wow, Dave, I had say you have your work cut out for you.  Are you going to have it sandblasted?  What color are you going to give it?  Looks like everything is there including that nice Arrow tail light.  Are you going to keep it with just the one tail light or are you going to add the other one too?  How's the floor?  I couldn't see it that well.

Well, it's a project but it could be fun.

Dave:

That's too funny but understandable.  Once you begin looking for parts for the Bantam there is no telling when you are going to stop.

Look at me, I thought I was done with my Bantam but now I'm looking at finishing the side rails and getting that "chuck wagon" style cover for it and I think I have found the company that will make my cover thanks to another friend on this web site. 

Once I get it all done I will post pictures so stay tuned and keep on working on your Bantam.  It's a lot of fun once you start.  And please do post pictures of your progress.  I would like to see what you are working with.

My chains are the early style chains with the large hooks on the end.  Like the military ones.
Mine are pitted pretty bad.  I haven't made a good assesment of what I am going to need or if I will be replacing them. 
I really need to stop all my "looking" for Bantam stuff and concentrate on my Willys.
You have a good looking pair of trailers there my friend.

Dave...good eye! my friend.  Yes, those chains and hook do not belong to the Bantam.  They belong to a M416.  I had a spare chains that I had swapped with someone else on a different build.  Anyways,, the original chains to the Bantam I have with me sandblasted and powder coated black.  I'll keep them just in case I decide to swap those chains at a later time.

Why?  Are you in need of some chains?  Just asking Tongue

Let me know,

Joel
