Flap sanding the joints or letting the welds show?

That is really saying something in a place where 7 out of 10 trailers
I've worked in Hagerstown with Northrop and a few hundred other cities and the respective states while chasing pipeline and I could and will attest that not having working lights on a trailer is not something only found in one place.

But it is true that for every one trailer you find with fully working lights, I can point out nine that do not, anywhere and everywhere on the road, no matter how you spell your state or city.

Time to start welding all the rails together.
I must say that I personally have never ever taken so much time and trouble to make something like a trailer look as nice as yours.

About grinding down welds, reminds me of watching all of these M/C chopper build shows grinding down 75% of bead/filler material to make something look slick. Weak and slick that is.

I've seen way too many frames break at these points just to make something look perfect unless of course one is found to be equally adept at only carrying a specific limit on loads considering a trailer.

Just me, I expect to see weld beads where joints are made. lol

I was hoping for that, but it may cost to much. May price it. Also may price powered coating as well. We will see.
