Tear Drop Construction

Construction  photos on the Tear Drop trailer.  The Trailer is from Harbor Freight..  If you are going to used the same trailer it will be a good idea to have some help in building it.  The hard part was getting it squared.  The plans called for using a bar clamp.  Instead I used a tie down strap to pull the trailer square.

Finally got it all squared up after a few hours, just before the sand storm hit.  No sandy required after the sand blasting form the storm.  Next step will be painting the trailer black.  Like black instead of red...
