    What's the plan with it? Only a paint refresh? Tailgate? Lid?

    Kool list... I love the Grote LED tail lights. I have the same ones, and they rock.

    I thought about a tailgate, but opted to keep the tub water and dust tight... just in case.

    Looking forward to the rest of the build, and good call on the drums and wheels!!

    Default A quick Galley

    Hey,

    Just spit-ballin' for an upcoming trip. This will be a sheet of 3/4" ply that will be painted against the elements. It will end up sitting against the side of the trailer so as not to interfere with packing. I have cut around the rope hooks and I will end up drilling a couple of holes so that I can bolt it to the fender. It feels very secure without any fasteners and it sits @ 36" off of the ground just like the kitchen counter. We will see how it goes.
