Latest project a 74 VW rear end trailer. The hard part is done now to finish it.

Very cool. I haven't seen it done that way before. Put an engine in it and you could have extra power for hill climbing!

I didn't want it to look like a bug cut in half. Could be a chariot for parades lol

How did you roll the sheet metal for the front corners?

Just built a tubing frame and wrapped the sheet metal around the curve since I don't have a slip roll big enough.

I like it! Nice job!!

That is one trailer that looks like a trailer and not like a chopped-up car gone wrong. Mission accomplished I'd say. . .

Very nice! Are you using a regular trailer axle and leaf springs?

Yes I will be using the 74 super front spindles bolted to a home made axle with leaf springs. That way we can match the wheels. The rear section used was from a rusted convertible.
