Hitch off, apart, sandblasted, paint & together

Ahh, if they would only stay new-looking forever. Winters on a salt water beach is a death blow to anything with steel in it. We did 5 of them.
I couldn't stand it any longer, so I took it apart, had it sand-blasted, painted it and it's all ready to go back in the truck.
Now on to the next project...

Now besides reconditioning AC units you can branch out into hitches
Cool job

Just did mine about a mo ago. Used Rust-O-Leum paint with rust proofer . Looks better than new. Well worth the work. Looks like yours is a great job also. Good job Ozz.

I think now that I did all that... I will probably buy the Butch deal and sell the Blue Ox bed saver. Too much bulk and weight.

Now if you would just pimp it out with some gold pin stripes and purple neon lights underneath it, it would be too cool!
