My friend andy hamilton disassembled his entire trailer and had the pieces stripped and hot dip galvanized. then he put it back together.

:: Thanks a lot everybody for the very helpful feedback. It
:: seems that sand blasting can be bypassed per the work on
:: "Opus".

:: :: call rust shield, which I purchase, at a car paint store
:: :: one that specialized in automotive paints. I will see
:: :: how it holds up? Since them I have found another pain
:: :: cal Por 15 which is supposed to be even better for
:: :: painting over rusted metal parts. Itís about $150.00 a
:: :: gallon.

:: :: :: repainted and they just rust again in a few years. Very
:: :: :: expensive process too. I have used this Rustoleum
:: :: :: Hammered paint that you can get at home depot and it is
:: :: :: easy and works great. You just knock off the big chunks
:: :: :: of rust and paint this stuff on with a brush. It
:: :: :: checmically bonds the rust and seals really well. I did
:: :: :: the trailer "Opus" (now "verve") lives on and I believe
:: :: :: that trailer is still in great shape. I probably did
:: :: :: that trailer about 8 years ago. Comes in a bunch of
:: :: :: different colors as well.
