STILL TO DO:
  1. Wash it--it's really dirty.
  2. Paint the tail supports. They're not going to survive much water/rain without a sealing of paint.
  3. Reinforce the Tail mounting flange.
    1. Re-fiberglass the existing flange to contain the cracking for the old bolt holes.
    2. Place a heavy plywood backer (1 inch thick or so) on the inside of the tail flange and fiberglass it in place at the same time as fixing the bold holes. Make sure the backer has holes for getting your hands inside for assemble and such.
    3. Redrill the existing holes.
  4. Come up with something more permanent for keeping the Tail from hitting the body.
  5. Finish up the last bits of the Tail cradle work.
    1. Install last steel cross brace for the ready mount. (read mount)
    2. Replace the long carriage bolt holding down the rear facing front cradle brace, with the proper size 3/8 bolt and captive nut. (captive nut = tan colored metal plate)
  6. Install the brake cover to protect the master cylinder. Needs a " bolt and a clip nut.
  7. At sometime the trailer is going to need a spare wheel and tire.
  8. A set of RV leveling jacks would make it very stable for display.
  9. A fender-ectomy needs to be done if you want to make a nice display stage out of it. Only the "Door" side really needs to be converted to removable.
