    Finally managed to get all the rust off the tubing. The frame is now sporting a lovely coat of red primer.

    Have also fitted the rear reflector, rear tow hook plate and grease nipples for the axles. Now need to make and fit the rubber pads for the suspension and when the weather is a little warmer and drier start to paint the frame sand.

    Been a little busy over the last few days while the weather has been drier and warmer.

    Have managed to paint the bottom of the trailer sand and mount the swing arms and suspension after a few problems and some naughty words. Need to change the swing arm securing nuts as they are to big, should be half nuts which are on order, and touch up the paint before turning right way up to complete the painting.
