Trailer box mount

I needed to get the trailer box mounted so I got out my tools and got to it. I measured and marked the spots for the holes in the bottom of the box so it would bolt to the trailer tongue.boxholes

Making a spare tire mount

I purchased a spare tire for the trailer yesterday and was going to  just buy a mount for it, but I couldn’t find a decent one, so I’m making one.

I decided to  mount the spare tire here so now I know where to build a bracket and can now design one for this spot.spare

I got my tools out and started cutting and drilling and welding the bracket together.tire

Here’s the first piece of the bracket, the part that holds it onto the trailer.bracket

I thought I had some wheel studs, but I looked and looked and couldn’t find any so I’ll have to buy some.

Without the studs, I don’t know the size hole to drill to bolt the tire to the bracket. I need to drill that piece there that will hold the studs that will  hold the tire on. I also need some lug nuts for it and will have to buy some, although I know I have some, somewhere.tirebracket

Van’s fridge

Marty is getting one of the newer battery operated chest fridge, freezer units for his van and talked me into getting one. I tore out the old gas/electric fridge and this stuff out of the van to see if I can figure out how to put the newer unit into the van. It’s going to be  a tight fit, if I can get it mounted in there.fridge

Nice day.
