    That’s where I bought the New Leg. They have good prices on parts. Should have had them put it on. But, the last time I used their Shop. Charged Me $2200 for brake shoes, one seal, and 3 drums. I just need it welded. Thanks though, I appreciate it.

    And Lake Shore is now Pace. They don't impress me. But that should be quick and cheap.

    Very busy Friday indeed. Rarely have room for trailers and all 12 bays are packed most every day.

    The door rate is rather high for trailer work to boot.

    Is this something that must be done on the trailer? What size trailer, flat, van?

    I can possibly assist if you find nobody else.

    If you were in my neck of the woods I'd do it for a case of Canadian.

    That’s Ok, I appreciate it. I thought of you, because I came back home through your area. It’s just the bottom bracket from old leg. I cut it off, for new leg. Got it bolted together. Needs to be welded onto the new leg.Maybe a tack weld, and I can take the leg off, to weld properly if needed. I
    only out 4 bolts in it for now. Came home leaving out tomorrow.

    If you wanna mark it and buzz the leg off I have a welder at the house. Be glad to help out. Not much room for the trailer and tight turns.

    PM if interested, should be around all weekend.
