So here it is guys. Thanks to all that followed along in the build up thread. http://skidsplace.forumotion.com/t1335-chevy-truck-with-russian-snowmobile-trailer

I am very pleased with the outcome. The customer is tickled pink. He will be taking pictures of his Russians distributor when he receives it as his Christmas present. I'll post pictures of that when I get them...

All loaded up and heading to their new home  001

The truck I built for him previously. It had to come back so I could install a hitch on it.

And my trailer... I pulled this off my shelf for the photo. It already has a trailer with a Harley Davidson on it, I'll build a truck for it later.

Man you hit a home run with this one. Great work. Your customer has to be tickled pink. The graphics on the trailer are a real winner.

Absolutely stunning!!! You should be real proud of these, they are awesome. I agree with Buck .... the customer should be extremely happy.

The wraps look good in the photos, and add great detail and graphics to the trailer and truck. I also like the display cases.

Great job Brent!

Hi Brent,

I think he will be over the moon with this, it's absolutely stunning Sir...

As for your, he could use the Harley in the summer and have the snow mobiles in the winter...

Hey guys, thank you!! Andy the display case is big enough I could put both trailers in there with the  truck :-)
He has asked me to build one more for his brother/business partner. Kinda burnt out at the moment from doing them so quickly so told him I would get it too him but not to be in a hurry for it.
I think I did quite well on the builds. We bartered and I was paid with Superclamps and Superglides. I should be able to sell everything (it's easy stuff to sell) for $800.00. I figured I spent about 5 0-60 hours on these three and another 20 on the 4th trailer and $100.00 in supplies/kits etc. The case was a gift for me he said in appreciation of doing the job.

What printer model did you us for the trailer decals? They look very crisp and clear. They look real cool on the carrier.

They are automotive "wrap" type decals. They were made at a local decal company.

I'm so happy that first he sent me the picture and clip and secondly the reaction. I keep watching the clip over and over. I have never gotten a response like that before. It's a great feeling for sure.
