    Looking for any pics or info on how this wood model tailgate was configured. I don't remember when using it 30 yrs ago. Search so far just turns up the catalogue artists' rendition.
    Note the heavy coil spring suspension. I do remember hauling tons of rockslides off the Pacific Coast Highway.
    Did these die out or just not sell? Any input appreciated while I learn to posts pics of rebuild.
    Thanks,

    outrigger 007.JPG outrigger 011.JPG Oops, Torsion spring not coil. Haven't seen that either. Anybody? It was rated for 1500 lbs like the others.
    Also, the deck is 7 feet by 4 feet not 6 by 4 feet mentioned in others.
    2 coats Rustoleum primer then 2 coats Valspar Implement Oliver green. Hadn't looked up this trailer yet to know that a dark army green is much more appropriate. Maybe fix in the next redo in 20 years.
    Decking is 5/4 and considering 1 X 6 for sides if that will match original. It had rotten plywood sides when I left it in the brush 10 years ago. Anybody know about wood sides?
