Transformation! We are SUPAHSTARZ.

It only took us two YEARS but we're FINALLY fixing up the horse trailer!

It was sold to us looking like the patchwork metal ******* child of a shops teacher turned serial killer, and after much deliberation we decided painting the entire heap and hiding the ugliness was our best bet. The frame is solid, and the floor is brand new so at this point, it's just an aesthetic issue.

Maybe that's why our horses hate it? They get made fun of at events!

Anyway, we're 3 hours in and done the first coat. We have a second coat to do, plus all the detailing and we're also adding navy blue horse stencils to the top as well as replacing the plywood on the doors and adding padding to the front. It's going to be EPIC when it's done!

Isnt it amazing what a little bit of paint can do? Looks really good. Can't wait to see the finished product.

You are much better off replacing those fenders - though the rust may not be all the way through, they are NOT a cosmetic issue, they can be very very dangerous. I bought a trailer in similar condition to yours (door fell off it on the way home) and while, like you, the frame was solid and most of the outside was just cosmetic, the fenders looked like that and HAD to be replaced. I have seen a rusted fender painted over only to fall off a trailer and bust a tire. I have also been in a truck hauling a trailer whose tire busted, and it is honestly a traumatic experience.
Fenders are cheap. Try Princess Auto. Trust me, you're looking at a head ache and a dangerous situation by leaving those on that trailer.

Lol that looks JUST like the one we had, only ours was white. We called it The Rustbucket. We diddnt keep it because it was unsafe and only fit two horses. Now we have an AMAZING three horse brand new trailer. Keep up the great work on it, and it'll be great in no time!!

That was the most cosmetically challenged trailer I think I've ever seen! :) It'll be adorable!
