One project is shown in the above photo. The wire mesh seen on the sides used to be the floor for the trailer. I upgraded the floor to wood and welded the mesh to the sides.There was also a steel support added to the floor.

Sold the 5x10 trailer, just too big for my driveway. Picked up a small 4x8 boat trailer. Have been modifying it; info can be seen here.
