How's this Chris, I'm sticking with the Tahitian Cannibal motif


Still working on 18 feet of hand painted border. Needs a lot of touch-up still, seems like I need about 15 coats of the orange and yellow to get coverage over the brown. Hopefully I am doing some justice to the spirit of Dawn's original design



Ordered a magnetic sign to use as a decal on the side, I can put it inside when not in use so it doesn't fade in our hot desert sun. I need to order more fabric but Spoonflower is temporarily out of poplin.

Hi Mike your trailer looks better than a home with all your decorations. I love the light and wall paint. Wonderful in every way, Wendy

New axle for my trailer FRESH from the junkyard. Everyone say "Owwwww, ohhhhh!"



Donated by a '93 Plymouth Voyager van. It will give me real tires and real bearings, plus the spare for my car will fit the trailer so I don't have to carry two spares. Now to get out the torch and welder to make it work

Which set looks beefier?





That axle is just sitting in place, still need to fabricate brackets to bolt it on. Got to get rid of the little square fenders and order big round ones (big & round is better right ). Now off to the shower!

Wow Mike, that project is bigger than I could have imagined. A manly project! What a great way to spend the new year rolling down the highway to a tiki event. Wendy

Have welder, will travel!

Love this kind of stuff Mike! Wish I was there to help or watch! The boy says you need some cool Mooneye hubcaps with a tiki design on them.

Happy New Year!

I've been watching the progress and it is a lot of work, but it is also a lot of fun too. Great choice on axle and wheels. Springs or no springs? I love it.

Thanks guys, I'm having fun. Pop, it's got some small leafsprings on it that should do the job.

Does this look 2.5 inches narrower?


I can weld some but it never looks pretty, so I suckered my brother into doing it for me. Before you give me a safety lecture on welding without a helmet, I want to point out that it was just a quick tack and he is looking away

We cut out 2.5 inches and shoved a short piece of pipe inside the axle. We bolted a 2x6 to the axle to keep it all straight & lined up, tacked it a few placed, checked it for square, then welded it all back together. I got called it to work tonight but hopefully tomorrow afternoon I'll get it bolted in place. Hope to take my trailer on a maiden voyage out to the desert next weekend.

On an unrelated note, I vacuum packed my 4 inch memory foam mattress into a 18x18x12 inch lump for safe storage in the house. It looks like a wrinkled, oversized dog turd

Man it is all coming together tiki-rifficaly! Always fun to see the progress on your projects. I had no idea you could weld... how come I have never seen a metal welded tiki from you?

Thanks for following along, I think I'm WINNING!
Axle bolted in just like it was supposed to. Pulled of the brake drums and stripped out a pile of brake parts I don't need any more. Next I'll pack the wheel bearings with some fresh grease and it will be ready for fenders and wheels. Thanks to some sort of computer glitch, I now have 4 fenders in route from Northern Tools instead of two but I'll get that worked out




Tiger, that welder is my brother. I can stick pieces of metal together but they never turn out pretty enough to be "art"

Brakes? We don' need no stinkin' brakes!


Looking good Mike, please re-torque your u-bolt nuts after a test drive okay? I speak from experience!
