    Default Need Ideas for my pull behind trailer

    Got a trailer on-line and then bought a Sears Cartop carrier and mounted on it. (Simular to the pix below.)


    Looking for ideas to paint, air-brush, wrap, cover with a flag... wanting something nobody else has.

    Trailer.jpg Any ideas? Wanting something patriotic..

    I painted my Harbor Freight Tag-Along red to match the Spyder we had at the time. Then I bought a newer Spyder that wasn't red. Oh well, I'm not repainting it.

    I used quality spray paint from the hardware store that was made for plastic but I see some "spiderwebs" appearing in the paint in a few places, likely due to the flexibility of the plastic box.

    Perhaps a wrap would work? The Tag-Along is textured so a wrap might have trouble sticking to it.

    I agree, I had a old white clam shell and tried to paint it, with black truck bed spray paint, pealed off. A company said wraps won't work either, due to the roughness.

    Maybe consider Plasti dip, availble in gallons or standard spray cans. When you want to "change" colors, just peel off the old and apply the new. Http://www.dipyourcar.com is one place online that you can purchase and it comes in many colors. https://plastidip.com is the manufacturer site. Search on you tube to see some neat applications

    You could cover it all in Camo-wrap....


    But then you'd never be able to find it once you'd walked away!!

    How about Hydro-Dip ? Their are a lot of designs to be had. Appears the can do about anything from what I've seen online. Just have to have a large enough tank.

    It would be really cool if you could paint it to look like the two halves of a walnut.
