New to me trailer

I know this isn't really a project build, per se, but I will be doing work to it as I go along, so I figured I'd post in here.

 

As most of you know we headed down to Ghostriders house today to pick up my new trailer. It is a Magneta trailer. I have been wanting one since I first saw Jerry's and finally got the opportunity to buy one.

 

When I picked it up it looks pretty much like the pics below, except the frame was black. I sanded it, primed it, and painted it tonight. It is a bear finding a color that matches the bike so I went with Titanium Silver, which was the closest we could find.

Besides painting I have completely removed the old wiring harness which was pretty patched up (not by Jerry). I will be replacing the entire harness and also replacing all the lights with LED's.

 

I also removed the 1 1/4" steel bar from the cooler rack I made a month ago and will be bolting the rack to the trailer. I will also be ordering some graphics from a guy I have bought previous vinyls from and putting them on the trailer. The main one will be the goldwing logo that will go across the back of the trailer to sort of incorporate the trailer more in to the bike.

I hate clutter... :yes::yes:

 

I use an old piece of vinyl for when I change the oil and do repairs. One time, I spilled a little oil on the floor and was panicking for a week until I finally got the stain up... :doh::rofl:

Thats not a lie. Sometimes I go out there and move things just to see how he reacts :funny: And dont you dare spill soda or anything on the floor... OMG.... That will result in punishment beyond belief :CRY: :funny::funny::funny::funny::funny:

 

Lets just say he is more picky with his garage than I am with the house, and that is saying ALOT :funny::funny:

I knew you were anal!!....retentive that is.....:scared: :funny::funny::CRAZY:

 

Great looking little trailer Dean! You kill me how quick you are with these projects man. :clap::clap: You gonna light it up so no one runs over it?? We were kinda worried with the gray/black one so added extra lighting and a flag pole so it could be distinguished when running up on the back of it.

I wont deny that I'm anal about my garage.. what she says is the truth :yes::yes::rofl:

 

Lighting... YES.... Im going to try to find a spoiler, with the led's in it, off of a 1500 to add to the top. Im also looking for a trunk rack off of a 1500 to add tot he top of it. :looking::looking::looking: For a really good price that is :yes:

I got a couple more hours work in today, on the trailer. I had some new 8" hub caps laying around that we had bought 4 years ago, when I had my other harbor freight trailer. They didn't fit the HF wheels. I decided to give them a try on the new trailer today. Well,,,, after about 5 minutes with a dremel....this is the result.

 

BEFORE

AND AFTER THE NEW HUB CAPS

I think I am almost done for now, minus the stickers I need to get ordered. I am also still looking for a 1500 or 1200 trunk rack, if anyone has one cheap. I'd also like to pick up a 1500 trunk spoiler...any color, as I can have it painted to match the trailer.

 

Next thing is to get a LED light mounted to the top lid, for more visibility, as the tail lights are pretty low on this trailer.

 

As you can see, I got the new DIY cooler rack mounted also and all of the wiring was removed, thrown away, and a new wiring harness was installed from front to back.

So until I find a spoiler, trunk rack, and get the decals ordered, thats it for now.

I honestly dont remember. I know they came from a private party on Ebay. They are actually Golf cart hub caps.

 

I did find THIS site that does have them though.

 

Ill post a few pics of the back of them so you can see if you thik they will fit your rim style.
