I like the lights too. But I won't own a trailer without guides. Guides are the only way to go. I even want to put a set up towards the bow as well.

I am a fan of the yellow running lights, I think they look cool on the side of the trailer.

Pretty cool. I always worry that the trailer lights down low won't catch the attention of some fool playing with a phone. Those will be hard to miss.

Not that I needed the guide posts but I really liked these lights so I installed these. The tie wraps you see will come off when I screw the housings together.
Lights are called "Slick Sticks"

Done, sort of. On to the bottom of the upper splash rails while its inverted. I might hit it again this time with the buffer, a wool bonnet and some old fashioned gritty rubbing compound to see if I can even the look out.

Looking forward to seeing it fliped over. Almost.

It's good to see someone working on their Clipper.

It never actually hit saltwater. The guy was too poor to ever run it. Was walled up in an artists compound for 10 years with a 55 chevy hard top that was in terrible shape and a weird shortened 73 charger as part of an instillation art piece. It is all from salt air and dew being 3 miles from the coast. Nothing inside, top side or outside above the bottom splash rails where rain washed it.
Not too hard to get it off and it's not deep at all. Flap wheel followed by a nylon wire wheel on a drill followed by napa aluminum bright. Whole bottom should take about 6 or 7 hours.

Larry you should start a restoration thread for this project of yours.

How long did it take you to do that much?

I had similar challenges with the Rocket. I found that a super-fine Scotchbrite with soft scrub finished off with a Brillo pad did the best job with the least effort.

Still, it wasn't my idea of a good time........
