Nice, deep penetration cuts, good method, should hold up well.
Congratulations.

Thank you,
I did a trade out for the repairs. I got an original trailer vin tag, four round reflectors, one original tow chain, parts of a black out switch, and a ww2 lynette pivot with foot.

I didn't try to figure out the total amount of money traded for the work.
About how much would you say the repair job cost to complete?

I do appreciate the materials and methods used. Very nice work.

First you need a 100 ton bending machine, and tooling. But I would say cost is 2 to 3 hours plus materials. 250-300.

Here is a picture of two Lunettes I have repaired. One smaller one is the 42. The ring is 1-5/8" and shaft is 1-1/4" dia. for a WW2 trailer.
The larger one is 1-3/4" ring and 1-5/8" shaft.

I think the larger one is a M100, but that's what was on my trailer.

I know I'm way out of my league compared to the great work you guys are doing.
But I am inspired and motivated. Thanks for that.
