Fixing the Trailer
Today was the perfect Fall day, sunny, cool, with a crispness in the air. Since I was feeling better we decided to replace the weatherstripping on the trailer doors. I used a metal wheel attached to a drill to remove all the old glue as well as some skin on my forearm. Always good to wear safety goggles, mask and ear plugs when doing such work. I guess I need to wear a bullet-proof shirt as well.
Once we had the glue off it was obvious the entire trailer could do with a bath, so out came the buckets, soap and water and in short order the trailer was sparkling clean.
Now it was time to attach the new weather-stripping. First run a bead of glue around the door frame, then peal back the sticky paper and apply the weatherstripping, voila! Done and a very good job if I do say so.
Take care and have a great weekend.
