This has been one crazy long week and very little time has gone into the trailer. I wont bore you all with the details of the week. I decided to take the hubs apart to repack the bearings. I was going to rehab the springs as well but the bolt on one set of springs was too rusted so down to northern tool I went to replace the springs. I replaced the U bolts at the same time. Hopefully I'll get more done this week. Maybe get the bottom finished and bolted down :thinking:

Re: The Finley T1 -Sides Started

Postby finleycraft » Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:07 pm

Worked for a couple hours this evening after work and got half of the front skinned up. The side isnt yet attached but I had to put it up again to see what it is going to look like. Gonna put a 15x24" window on both the front and the driver side. I only want one door and it will be on the passenger side. I am going to try to get some more done tomorrow after work since I have plans all weekend.

Thanks guys! I kinda stole the base design from Campinn 560 ultra. I did ask permission first :lol: I really am having fun with this build but last night the damn cicadas were deafening. :x My ears were hurting by the end of the evening.
