Probably, but I just found the decal pics and copied them. I had to resize them for my camper pictures is all. I have a friend that does car wraps and he said he could do them.

Well it seems my buddy just didn't have the time to do my graphics so I checked around and found a place near by. They couldn't do my exact graphics, but they thought they had some similar that I would like that could be edited to suit me. So after setting down with their graphic artist we came up with something I liked and more importantly something my wife liked. So it is pretty much done now other than adding the spare tire. I finished the mount for it Monday. It pivots flat when towing and down when I need to access the tongue box. I plan to make a top for it so I can use it as a table as well.

Here are the pictures of the mount and the trailer graphics.

The graphics look great, 8) And that is a great idea for a spare tire mount.

Thanks! When I cut the tongue I left just enough room for my tailgate on the jeep to clear the tool box. Now the tire stops that from happening. I knew it would when I put it on there and if I had known I was going to mount my spare there I would have left the tongue longer. I am thinking about adding to the tongue to get the clearance back, but not sure what it will look like if I do. Questions Questions.....LOL or is that what to do what to do?

Been awhile and thought I should update. I still have not really had a chance to use our Wee-Go since I finished it or what I thought was finished...LOL. Seems to be a work in progress. Anyway I was sick with pneumonia in December, then got real busy in January. Wife got the flu in February so here we are in March and it has been rain every weekend and the pollen is off the chain so it is still parked. My wife stayed on me about the shinny chrome tool box not looking right with everything else black on the trailer. So I pulled it off and spent a week prepping it and painting it black too.

As I stated earlier, with the spare mount on the tongue now I didn't have room to open the hatch on the jeep so I bought some 1 1/2" 1/4" wall square and used it to reinforce the 2" x 2" 3/16" wall tongue and added 1 foot to it's length. That got it so I can open my hatch again. Then I got to thinking I need a rear porch light. I have an led light on the inside just above the door so all I had to do was drill through to the inside and tap into the wires going to that light to power this one.

Is it done? I don't know....lol. Since it has gained weight to 1400 lbs. it needs to be done. With us planning our trip to Alaska via California from Louisiana and towing with my jeep I am beginning to worry about the weight. I mean we still have a year to go before the trip and I don't have a clue what my wife will pack for a two month trip or how much that will weigh.

Anyway here are the pictures of the finished toolbox with the extended tongue and porch light.

Guess this a project in the works since I am always finding things to do to my Wee-Go. I have a 45 quart RTIC cooler that we carry our food and stuff in, but it barely fits in the rear gate on my Jeep and when loaded it is very heavy! Read " I ain't getting no younger!" So after I accidently folded the tongue jack and couldn't get the tongue back up by hand without using a pole I thought I need to get that tongue weight down a little more and I wanted to get the cooler out of the Jeep. I wanted to be able to lock it for bear proofing and theft proofing, like there really is such a thing....LOL Maybe theft deterrent is a better word.

So that being said I wanted to mount the cooler on the back of the Wee-Go. The problem is the license plate would be blocked it is was to the side out of the way of the door and to not block the license plate it was in front of the door! I decided to make an pivot arm to mount it on so I could swivel it out from in front of the door while camping and in fro traveling. I made a 1/8" X 1" metal band that hinges over the cooler and pad locks to the front of the arm to lock the cooler in place. The lock is between the pivot arm and the bumper so it is a little harder to get to when the arm is in travel mode. The latch for the arm is a gate hinge that folds up to a tang on the underside of the bumper with a clevis pin in it to latch for now, but I may switch that to a lock at a later date for our Alaska trip.

Hope this gives you some ideas.
