Unfortunatly I didn't get chance to get anything done on the trailer last weekend. Between having to work on Saturday and good surf and the Grand prix on sunday that was the whole weekend pretty much accounted for. The good news is the clocks have gone back and its getting warmer so motivating myself to get out out there and get stuff done after work is going to be a lot easier with some decent daylight and no need for three T-shirts two jumpers and a hoodie just to keep warm.
The main reason for this interim post though is that three hundred quids worth of aluminium chequer plate aswelll as all the remaining metal I need to finish the trailer turned up the other day. All I need is a couple of clear days to get the runners built up and the ally fixed onto them and its going to start looking pretty finished.

The time has now come to stump up for the ally chequer plate for the runners so i can crack on with them next weekend. This is not going to be cheap!

|I'd all ready made one new set of chassis mounts to |
account for the trailer getting wider
|The bracket passes beneath the side rail for|
extra vertical strength
|Support from behind to counter any 'Pull' forces.|
|Boom! a few inches make all the difference|

The bottom of the spring sits on top of the swinging arm but the top of the spring is retained by a top plate and a large bolt that passes through the whole lot through to the underside of the main beam.
