REALLY?   didn't know that, thats a new one on me.  As far as highjacking, just being a smarty alec. It did seem strange to say that.  Now reading this all I can say is oop's. good to know.

Finished welding up the side door latch and mounted the side door. No problems welding the galvanized i was making a big deal out of nothing. Better safe than sorry i guess. I thing this door was almost more work than the back door was.

I would really suggest a "V" nose or even one of those trailer bubble's on the front. We have been pulling a small flat front trailer and it will kill your fuel mileage!
Especially with that long tongue you have there you are really sticking that thing out in the wind!
Actually, Jon I think it is the hotdogs and donut's weighing down your trailer that is killing your mileage,lol. Just had to razz Rooster and Larry guys, not hijacking the thread. Trailer build looks really good!

hot dogs are aero dynamic! And the donuts have a hole in them, they roll nicely!

I finished up the door for the air compressor box on the front of the trailer today. I'm gonna mount it tomorrow.
I ordered fenders and a set of hinges on Wednesday and received them today. Everything that I have ordered from the link listed below has been delivered promptly and the quality of everything has been satisfactory I highly recommend this company.

I'm getting close to needing the skin to cover the plywood. I want to use .024 aluminum sheets. Does anyone have any recommendations as to a good place to source these materials? CHEAP?
