    Well some dummy just assumed that those pieces of diamond plate were 48" long...

    Oh well. I've got ideas for that spot anyway. For now I'll just put a bolt through that board so it doesn't warp too bad.

    It's essentially done. I have to put more bolts in the angle iron on the back, then I have to fasten the loose wires underneath it now that the deck is on. But it's usable now.

    I'm sure I'll be modifying it sometime, and a winch mount of some sort is definitely in the plans eventually. I'd like to put some rub rails on it too in the future.

    I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Definitely the paint made the biggest difference. I'll oil the deck next year or so after the wood has had time to dry out.

    The best part for me is I really shouldn't have to worry about the deck for a long time. My old trailer needed to be redecked but I just kept putting it off.
