Is it not some kind of baked-on or powder coated paint? If its just plain aluminum, do you just acid wash it? I thought mine was painted - but it is the same color as yours!

The silver on my trailer is just aluminum. You could acid wash it or they make some special gel you could wax the trailer with. Mine wasnt bad so I don't believe we did anything to that. We just repainted the stripes

Just wanted to update y'all. The trailer has been completed and is ready for use, I am so excited! Here's a before and after picture of the outside of the trailer. I'm going down now to take pictures of the inside. It looks brand new. Not bad for an 88'!!

Here's more pictures. They aren't the best as it's raining now. I'll have to wait for a nice day to lower the ramp and get good pics. We only have half of the trailer painted so the front and one side is still red. These pictures don't give any justice as to how it looks now!

Very well done - if it wasn't so time consuming and expensive you could consider rehabbing trailers as a sideline or business.

Thank you! My dad does amazing work and this was his first time renovating a horse trailer. No short cuts here in this renovation!! My dads very picky which is great. I'm glad he's so handy and did all the work for me. Here are better pics I took today of the ramp down.
