Welcome to the 8th and final episode of the PILE Trailer Rebuild Series. Check out the surprise that was mentioned in Episode 7.
We begin by getting the trailer ready for primer and paint which means we have to get the metal clean. We start by sandblasting the trailer using a handheld sandblaster.
We then spray everything with a coat of primer. Once the primer is dry, it's time for several coats of gloss paint.
I reveal a huge problem that happened while painting the trailer.
We then add a storage box, tongue jack, finish the trailer lighting and wiring and add a special custom touch.
This was a fun episode and I hope you enjoyed watching as much as I did building it!

Nice job sir, good skills with that portaband, pity I was not around when you were doing the job as I woulda told ya about that dodgy log support and that you forgot the jack..................:).
Like the white paint job- can be used for weddings.
Good work and top result.
+Jacek Strzembkowski With your background in engineering, you will be very effective as a welder. A lot of the people i know who are interested in welding have ideas to build something but are pretty lost when it comes to figuring out where to start and what they need for materials.
Mig welding (in my opinion) is probably the easiest process to pick up on and do a good looking job. If your a learn at your own pace type of guy, there are some great youtube channels out there that teach the process. One I personally reccomend is "welding tips and tricks". He has an excellent series on learning to weld.
I completely agree with your comment about kids. It's a great feeling watching them learn and process the information as they build something with their own hands. It's a great way to build confidence and self esteem while we are in the age of "buy, use, throw away and then buy another".
Thanks for the great comment and I'm looking forward to hearing about your welding adventures!
>> I learned at the age of 14
Unfortunately I went to schools that did not teach me practical things. Unfortunately I became an engineer .... and spent a lot of my life on theory.... But, I remember how my grandfather did some things. Now, after 40, I learn as much as possible. First of all, how not to hurt myself ;]]. Tools and materials are relatively cheap. Welding is number one on my list of things to learn. Until now, I mostly worked in wood.
It is fun to work with kids. For their generation doing things, constructing, not buying ready-made, is something from another world. In a few days, we are going to build a draining box. "Do we buy ready made?" Nope ... we will build our own with bottle containers. Out of nothing - something.
I'll be happy to see your next projects. Greets!
+Jacek Strzembkowski Thanks man! There are a lot of youtube videos out there that put down the "budget" welders. Truth be known, you can get into it for pretty cheap. I learned at the age of 14 on the cheapest welder my dad could afford and I had a blast for MANY years! Thanks for the positive comment brother!
+Gordon Reiher No kidding Gordon! It's bitter sweet now that it's over though. I took it out today for its first road trip with no issues. I'll have a short video coming out soon. Thanks for the support brother!
