x2 on what creepy said. or use GLO

also, get your tires before you buy lock rings - if you run tires bigger than 38's the beads get pretty thick and the mag runflats are a little too wide (plastic ones are better if you're willing to drop some coin).

finally some progress has been made Dropped my old/Nicks new trailer off and dragged the retard on it so that when some one takes over it i can just be picked up. Some how I came home with the axles and all kinds of other shit. Over the next few weeks I will clean and prep the axles, remove the rear truss and build a new one then reassemble axles etc.
