    Default Shadow Trailers

    Need/Want my trailer powdercoated, re-wired and re-welded in some areas. Has anyone worked with Shadow Trailers in Cypress CA? Talked to Fritz and he seems like a really cool guy. They seem to build nice stuff..

    Or...

    Any recommendations for another mfg? I called Extreme and they seemed to busy to talk to me.

    Kind of far from you, but try Kustom Trailers in Rancho cucamonga.. I dont' have the number handy but they do some nice work. NOt sure if they powdercoat vs. paint though.

    yes you have to bake it, most powder coaters have ovens large enough

    True. I like the powdercoat because its more durable, but Im ok with paint too. Like outlaw said, most shops have ovens big enough for a car chassis.

    Are they able to take the boat off the trailer or do you need to do that
    before you take them the trailer?
    If they can take it off, do you have to do anything to prep the boat
    (remove engine/interior)?

    sandblast and paint. I told them to take their time..Im assuming 2 weeks.

    The entire trailer is a POS! I was suckered. The manfacture didnt build it right so its falling apart. The previous owner had it repaired shortly before i bought it but the welds look like bubble gum! Most didnt even penatrate the steel. So we are going to be welding some cross members and doing some other fab work to make it right.
    pretty reasonable in their price? I need mine done soon too
