The kids learn how to do it, you get a supervised paint job and everybody's happy.
This would be good idea, but kind of leery of it, since former MIL had my youngest son's 68 Chevy truck done, well done at prison...but anyway, they painted over some rust on it. Surely vo tech wouldn't do that, but don't know if they do trailers?
