BRBO 2021Dan Gurneys T/A race hauler

Recommended Posts

Gareth Thanks,

Thanks Jeff. 
Thanks Tom. 
Thanks Ken. 
Well I’ve been working on the trailer interior that came with the trailer. First it’s set up for just one car and I have 2. I’ve parts from another race car hauler trailer so my plan is to extend the car supports to handle both cars. The rear ramp in the kit dose not work so I’m going to redesign it to make it work. It’s not like the one that is in the Dan Gurney trailer either. I don’t have enough details to do that one so I’m going to make mine one that would of worked for them. Here’s what I have laid out so far.

glad to see your back at the bench, hopefully you didnt get effected to badly from the storm

Ive been chatting with fellow reefers in Texas were they struggled keeping their tanks running and inhabitants alive..mostly to no avail. Never would expect that kind of weather to strike the southern states

Thanks Jeff, We made out ok lost power for a total of about 60 hours but no frozen or busted pipes. It’s good to be able to be back on the bench. The red, green and yellow paints are supposed to be here today.

Sprayed some silver on the interior. Planning on painting the cabinets red. I’m going to start laying out the stripes on the sides of the trailer next. Painting the AAR on the back of the trailer is going to be fun 🤩 I’m hoping I can pull it off.

Thanks Jeff and Brian 

I'm for the most part done with the cab. Still have a couple decals to put on and the shifter.

More progress on the interior of the trailer today. Making the supports for the front car using spare parts from my other race car hauler.

If you have not secured the tool cabinets in place yet, may I suggest that you add some toe-kick spacers. Those cabinet doors in real life would be sweeping the floors.

That is looking very nice, Man... These  cabinet walls always look so good after painting... Excellent work.... And the rest of the trailer is coming along nicely, as well... Awesome....

Thanks Bill for your recommendation I would of made the change if I had known about the doors being on the floor a week ago. I’m to far along now and I’ve got just enough clearance for the Cuda’s the way it is now. 

Thanks JT. 
Thanks Ken. 
Making some progress on painting the trailer.

Well the weather has slowed me down with painting but a nice lady at my local car repair shop I was at yesterday has offered to make all the  lettering for the trailer with vinyl.
