Now on to the Fenders. I had the Sheet metal store bend some fenders for me. They cut them to fit these end braces that I made. The top of the Fender is 16 inches long, with a 2 inch bend at the end. The angle of the bend is 45 degrees. On each end I welded these braces in then I welded the fender to the trailer. This is very strong and should hold up to any abuse I can hand it. They will also be strong enough to stand on.
Here the fender is upside down, and I am showing the other end. I welded all way along the end. This maybe over kills but it just takes a few extra minutes and then I know it's done right.
I will add another support to the middle, then weld it to the trailer frame.
Prepped and ready to fire up my MillerMatic MIG welder.
This picture shows the fender attached to the trailer. You can notice that the fender is even with the inside of the trailer frame. This will meet the Aluminum diamond plate. Look closely and you will see I had to cut out the top of the fender to notch it around the support I added.
This is a picture of the other side of the trailer. I am at the point that I have painted the fenders with a couple of coats of paint and added the rear bracket for the tail light. If you look closely you can see a small bracket on the middle of the back of the fender. This will hold the light way up and inside the fender. The lights will be protected from harm, as they are "Up tight and out of sight"
