    I have no clue what she would weigh, but keep in mind anything over 900KG requires a safety.... so I'd say she weighs 900KG.

    You are pretty hard pressed to have the average 7K tandem axle car hauler weigh in excess of 1500 LBS (680 KG) empty. The very heaviest typically don't get to 2000 LBS (907 KG).

    Regardless, your trailer weighs under 900 KG. Just tell them it weighs 800 KG and leave it at that. It is an arbitrary number, anyway, since nobody that matters really cares what it weighs empty. The green hornets salivate over the actual loaded weights and the magic 4500 KG threshold we have beat to death here.

    I registered my car trailer as home built as well. Like everyone saying number of axles, color, weight.

    Nice score on the trailer. I would think you will need fenders. What are you using for the deck? There goes your $200 budget LOL.

    Are you still wanting going to grab the truck camper?

    Perfect, 800kg it is.

    Gonna widen it a bit where the tires sit for the full widths and maybe bolt down some wooden 2x8's just inside the frame rails. Doing some measurements it's a bit of an odd configuration having a longer front end then rear so i'll probably keep the length as it is. Leaves some decent room up front to build a little storage box at some point for parts, welders, genny, dead hookers and what not.

    Still liking the camper idea buddy. Once i get the Ferd on the road i'll let ya know

    So for the most part i have everything in plumbed and wired. Made some driveshafts last night out of various ends and new tube, just need a couple joints so i can install, spin check/adjust and weld. Having a bitch of a time finding 3/8" fuel line that's rated over 50 psi. I have some 50 psi line in now but should probably swap out sooner then later. Have ignition to a switch as well as starter. Starter cranks good and proper pressure adjusted to the rail. But.....waiting on a friggin gas pedal/tac module to show up i ordered off ebay. Seems to be lost in never never land. I thought maybe it'd start without but no dice. At least i hope that's why it won't.

    A couple pics. Everything is so damn tight with the rad lean.

    With the fancy cock bracket and a new frame mount my steering shaft has more clearance then it ever had. This worried me from the get go. Also have a sneaky little PSC pump in there i jacked from the neighbor when he wasn't home. lol



    Need to mount the computer and clean-up wiring but gonna wait till it fires before i go too far. Added a little more A pillar support as well and a no charge B&M.



    More wiring to tidy, temporarily permanent battery tray, chopped stock intake tube/abortion which ended up fitting mint. Just needed to plastic weld a couple holes up and need to sort a way to toss a 90 and extend the filter. have the fans mounted off some removable brackets to the rad mount.



    And i coughed up and grabbed a couple proper 32 spline flanges for the 205.

    The rad has a wicked gangster lean. Too bad the steering box is in the way of being able to lower it.

    lol

    And seeing as mine is not done for this beautiful looking 24 i'll just jack the next best yard heep. It's not a 6L but i guess the 5L will do. Pulled it in last night for a once over. A lot smaller list! Chop off windshield and add plexis, make front shaft, add limiting straps, new steering pump, wire winch, jack some beadlocked 42's, and hope noisy throwout bearing survives.

    Oh ya, add safety yellow headlight bezels! lol

    Gets comfy once you really wiggle in there! Lol

    42's didn't fit safely but a new drive shaft, steering pump, a trim of my ol plexis with a cut off frame, and some paint and welds and things spruced it up!

    Just remembered, there was one ankle broken in it but not recently.

    Fun fact. The ankle that was broke was Laura, the chick that runs Silver Willow Classics car show. Her folks built the place and she grew up here. From what she's said there has been all kind of awesomeness go on in this shop. Here's one of the pics she sent us. Pretty cool.

    Yup, road trip last night for one. Plugged it in about 1 in the morning and no start. Had a few choice words and went to bed. Have a better look this eve.

    On a side note, was an interesting rednecks backyard i got the pedal from. Tons of trucks from the 60's up.

    Here's a couple yard ornaments

    Bunch of eagles





    Comanche with a sliding soft cab



    Super sweet scoop!



    And if my heep doesn't get running soon maybe i'll head back and grab this sick whip. lol
