    That’s a lot of trailer to paint!

    I would like to see one painted gloss black
    Red would work.
    A few other colors too.

    Sure, a fresh coat of tan or OD would look great, but isn’t always fitting in a commercial application.

    It’s the bad paint jobs I hate.
    Nothing or very little taped off and overspray on everything.

    You can tell a lot about a commercial operation by how their trucks and equipment look.
    A truck/trailer that is always dirty and looks like it hasn’t been washed for a year speaks volumes.

    Clean and maintained equipment almost always means they care and are squared away and will treat their customers with same respect.

    All the manuals are available on-line. Just do a Google search for "m1000 trailer TM" and you pull up several free sources.

    Took 5 gallons. I'll probably order another gallon for touch-up, as I've already spotted some places I've missed underneath.

    Right now, I've got the rear taped off and working on painting "oversize load" permanently on the back. It will be oversize anytime it moves, so I figured I'd just paint it on there.
