Body panels are all primed and ready for paint.

Some suspension parts primed and painted with Imron Black.

Chassis and remaining suspension parts are headed to the galvanizer tomorrow.

Man that looks like my m416 a few years ago. Great job you'll live the end result!

Thanks Chris! While not manufactured by British or Land Rover...I truly love the lines of the M416 and believe it looks amazing behind a defender.

BTW - Seems like my plans for this trailer change on a daily basis... While I wanted to restore the original camo color look, my wife put a hard stop to it. She wanted a more conservative look. So, I went with dark green. I already painted the tub and fenders...but forgot to take a pic before I headed out of town. The color looks awesome. I will take pics and post next weekend.

Nevertheless, I did take a pic at the galvanizer today.

Painted mine red to match my Disco truck. Will have to repaint it now that my Defender build is tan. But for now it will stay red.

Dan - I used Artie at http://www.blastit-sandblasting.com/

He did my entire trailer, bits and all, in about 2 hours. He only charged me $250...but I know that I got the friends and family rate. I believe his normal rate is $250/hr. So tell Artie that I sent you and see if he will cut you a little break on the rate.

Got you beat Chris at least on the blasting!

Asked a friend who owns a big metal working facility and got it done for free.

Nice Chris!

I don't know how anyone can beat free. In our world, having a generous friend who owns a metal shop is priceless.

Change of recommendation, everyone PM Chris for all your sandblasting needs...free of charge!

2 coats so far. Maybe 1-2 more light coats and then it's good to go.

Unfortunately, not likely. I am in the process of moving to Minneapolis so timing is difficult.
