Trailer Build up

I am currently building a new Trailer so I can easily tow my rig to the trails

Specs:
16 foot deck
82" wide
4x4 1/4" Angle Iron
Wood Deck

To see pics and progress follow links below

DAY 1
We laid out the outside of the deck.. made sure it was square (a lot of measuring)
we then tacked it all in place and re-measured.. then after it was all set we welded it all up. After all that was done we cut all the cross braces and laid them were they would go.

DAY 2
We welded in all cross braces for the deck.
Each Cross brace was lifted 2" off deck so that way we can slide the wood in under the steel and it will be a tight fit.

DAY 3
We welded in some more braces for the leaf hangers to be welded to.

DAY 4
We cut the steel and welded in the tongue

DAY 5
We decided to flip the trailer onto its side so it would be easier to weld the seams....and I will never try this again with only two people ( mistakes we make )

DAY 6
Ok well we flipped it to top side up so I could finish more welding.. and Yes I had more help this time

DAY 7
Did some more welding and flipped trailer again. I also started to paint some of the crossbraces with some black paint

DAY 8
Finally got all the welding done so I painted the bottom side of trailer and it is now ready to be flipped again

DAY 9
Well We did flip it over and set it on old axles to see how it would look, we also did some more work to the front.

DONE
Well We finally got the trailer finished.

The Addition
Yes I have added more to the trailer :)
