Did the spare tire to the back door mod this weekend as well as insulated and sheeted the cubby. Here's how everything turned out.
Went to a place here called Metal by the Foot, scrounged around in their scrap bin for some flat aluminum stock 1/8" thick for all of $2.20 and made the plates for the front and back.
Here's the outside of the back. If you do this mod I will tell you the door is frightfully easy to drill through. Expanded styrene is about all thats in there...wow. Almost scary easy so don't be freaked out by how fast your bit goes through the door...REALLY!
Here's the finished product.
Also insulated the cubby with some 5/8" styrofoam and then applied sheeting to the interior. The sheeting can be had at Lowe's or Home Depot back in the Kitchen Dept. Its the stuff they put on the end of the cabinets and a 6 ft x 32" sheet runs $20.
I thought I had pics of my little fender well platform - guess that'll be a next weekend thing when we head out for our second trip of the year.
WARNING: I like my Harleys. But this trailer...this 19rr...I'm tellin ya - I'm reeally geekin out over this thing...I mean almost scarily so! Sonofabitch...I'm kinda scarin myself!
