I found the perfect trailer for this while perusing the LHS yesterday.

It's going to take a LOT of grinding to get the inside of it looking good, it's a mess in there.

After a lot of grinding and sanding, Ive got one side roughed into shape and enough material removed to cut the doors out.

Derick, the jukebox was in the box with the trailer which is a Jimmy Flintstone piece. I don't know if it was supposed to come with it or not, or even if it is a JF piece. The stock of resin at my LHS seemed to be really old, there were two trailers and only one had the jukebox.

I've hammered on the trailer in the last 2 days. After about an hour of grinding and sanding the inside is somewhat usable. I did come close to going through the roof in one of the corners, I filled it in with some CA and it seems strong enough. I cut the floor from .040 sheet. I also cut the skirts off without damaging them. I plan to recreate the shape of them  as open fenders.

Next up was the frame, axle, and suspension.

 

Upside down.

Right side up.

In place on the floorpan.

How it all should fit together.

Thanks for the comments guys!

 

The frame for the trailer is done. I'm just about ready to put color on the floorpan and once I decide the cargo, I'll build the walls and ceiling.

The floorpan for the trailer is painted.

Back to the engines, I redid the plug wires on the right side engine. I removed the stock water pumps and will build an electric one to replace them, that should clean the plumbing and belts up a bit.

I messed around with the trike a little more. I started with making new wheels and tires for the back.

 The framework for the tire.

P3141542_zps8db11d5b.jpg

The tire is ready for prime and filler. I made a front tire but will probably scrap it in favor of an O-Ring if I can find one the right size. I've also started on the front forks and footpegs.
