Painting the tear drop trailer
After getting an estimate from the local auto body painting company, we decided to paint the tear drop trailer ourselves with rusteloum. The first thing we did is go to You Tube and watched a video on guy painting his vintage trailer. I looked at the web of colors that were popular in the 40s. I did find some living room colors from the 40s that kind of popular here in the southwest. We came up with these colors that were available at Home Depot-Lagoon, Paprika and Sunburst. This is the in progress photos. It was a lot of taping off and took several days to get it painted. The wind was a nuisance and if we had a inside option we would have taken it.
The paint looks irregular on the hatch. It gets better as we apply more coats of paint.
