Meet Polka Dot Rosie

Well finally my Little old Aladdin gets her name and her new paint job!

My first born is getting her new paint job, well you know what I mean (Sorry kids) a trailer to them, but you know what I mean!




This was the original stripe, but I thought it was a little whimpy!






Mr perfectionist.




Well what do you think? Pretty good for a $35 dollar paint job!




Do you think she needs a silver pin stripe?


Just a quick look at Polka Dot Rosie from the rear!



This paint was awesome for the price ($35 bucks!) I purchased it at Rodda, it is and industrial machine paint oil based enamel and comes in a variety of really great colors! We rolled it on with a very low pile roller, it dries quick so you have to be fast. The hubs did the important rolling job , but I did the even more important "smoothing job" with a foam paint pad I folllowed behind and smoothed out the tiny bubbles!

  8. I just "bought" my second trailer, sadly the first one, a freebie, could not be salvaged. I am interested in learning more about the painting that you did. Have read so many sites that got very technical and way above my capabilities. How did you prep it? BTW, my purchase is a 1967 Corsair and I can't find any info on them?
