I'm shooting for Charles good which is somewhere between Jim good and Ron good. Take your time Ren. Have a beer, pace yourself, and you'll get it done

Good eye Jeff. Yes, I do need those for my 110. Sucks I already bought 2 new LHS ones since the RHS is NLA. I guess they will be up for sale at some point, LOL.

I will take the beer. Rather sit back and watch, much more entertaining.

btw If you take the gutter off of the curved section above what would have been the rear door, and flatten it out, there should be some extra. Then you can fill the gap with a sheet of alloy.

Ha you are so full of it it's not funny. I have seen you sink countless hours (and a ton o cash) into things that are important to you on your rovers that I wouldn't, so let me do the same without nagging me. LOL

I think you must be referring to a certain engine project. That hurts, man. Well, the roof looks good and i'm sure this will end up looking pretty nice if your other projects are any indication.

Like I said, just gonna kick back with the beer and keep my mouth shut. Except to let beer in of course

I've been perusing the government auctions, and might consider picking up a military 3/4 or 1-1/2 ton trailer instead. They are much larger capacity and the price might be right. Shoot it the same color as your Rover and you are set! plus it'll save a lot of labor... Thoughts?

See my reply to Bobeck above, this is just something I want to do. Plus I think you just want my 109" tub - hands off.

An OCC guy has one for sale. I dont think they are that cheap anyway - what price do you think you can get one for.

But yeah my trailer isn't going to be cheap

The M101 3/4 ton trailers run about $500-$1000 and and are much better and bigger than using a tub. I think I am going to this route. Plus they are built for off road and nice and square - oh and STEEL! Much easier to weld stuff to!

Putting aside the fact I really want to make trailer out of a rover tub, I don't consider those cheap for what you get for the money (they all seem to need a lot of work). And they are very heavy.

But yes they are excellent trailers otherwise

Here's another trailer idea I have bouncing around in my head: Build a flat steel trailer frame, then mount side opening cargo boxes on the sides and front, install a drawer system at the rear. The side cargo boxes will create a "tub" for gear, and then you can still make a lid for it.
