    Cruiseroutfit-

    Sweet trailer man, I have thought of the same thing but making the trailer the same height of the cruiser, I have access to a junk 40 with enough tub and top to make a trailer with, but I really like how yours will be low and how you used the fiberglass top.

    Did you bond two different tops or mold the other half? Looks great!

    I uses two seperate tops and then joined them using fiberglass mesh/resin, actaull alot stronger than I predicted, after adding the metal drip rail, it is very rigid (well enough for a top).. it held up to 2 feet of snow just fine...

    Lots of new things to come soon, possilby a sink, etc..

    Oh yeah, this thing only weighs about 350lbs as of right now... probably 500lbs with spare tire, propane, tailgte, etc.... :D

    I agree Kurt. I just cut up that 69 fj40 you saw in my garage when you picked up the disk brake brakets. It's poised and ready to fulfill the rest of it's life behind my 40 or 80, but we need pictures.
