Nick over at MadSkillz Fab is working on converting the trailer for the crazy eights into a dolly trailer so it can fit into an enclosed trailer. (Separate project thread coming for that soon!)

I drove it out from Vegas yesterday and he started making quick work of it right away. Follow along for updates

Got all the welded on steps and old leaf spring hangers cut off and welds cleaned off. Installed the 2 tubes that will tie in the rear cut out for accessing the pump hardwear. Started installing part of the new framing for the new leaf spring hanger location. Also built the new 2" x 2" x .250 wall axles.

Probably keep them as spares for another project. I love cyclones.
