  • Nude Frame

    Finally took the 250 frame to the "Dustless Blasting" folks today. I should have it back in 2 or 3 days. Then back home for some reinforcement and off to the powder coaters.

    Cheers,

    Wolf

        Yup, Missouri requires it, but I only did it once when it was new and never re-up'd the plates. Never been pulled over yet!

        I'll post a "after" shot when I get it back.

        Cheers,

        Kevin

              Frame does look great. We too have to have plates on the trailers. You pay once for personal use and its good for the life of the registered owner. If you run commercial, you pay yearly. I think I paid $75 for my 20' tandem enclosed hauler.

                Kevin, I have had a couple of frames powdercoated and found that putting bolts in all the holes so powdercoating does not get in there was a good idea. I would also take all of the clips for the brake and gas lines off before coating. Just a thought.

                    Here's the "After" pics. Had frame and TRailing arms dustless glass bead blasted, (glass + water), All in for $165. Totally worth it, don't you agree?

                        No real surprises. I did find a few very small cracked welds though. I'll fix those easily.

                      Wow - nice job. Frame looks great, Kevin. Are you going to use your newly acquired welding skills to gusset 'er up?

                        That's the nice thing about the Dustless Blasting technique. They put a rust inhibitor in the water while blasting and give you a minimum of 72 hours of protection. It's also in my humidity controlled garage at less than 20% humidity. After I do the frame reinforcement, I'll take it directly to the powder coater.

                        Cheers,
