Finally getting the other Wesco trailer ready for the Aristo Craft. Had it sandblasted.Painted it last Friday. I used Rustoleum paint and am very pleased with how it worked. Also did the wheel bearings. Had an issue with the spindle on one side of the axle being slightly smaller than the other,so I decided to put a sleeve over the spindle to take the looseness out of the bearings and keep the seal from wearing so fast.Used the side of an old metal paint can, wrapped it around the spindle. Seems to work fine as the bearings went on snug. Then had a little trouble getting ground for the tail lights. Checked my usual grounds and they were fine. The problem was in the hinge for the trailer tilt,so I ran a ground wire from the tongue to the A-frame and got that fixed. The trailer structurally is an improvement over the other one. I'm going to patch up the other wesco for salt water use.

Thanks Mark, I think they were asleep on the job when they machined the ends of the axle lol.
