Looks like the image cache got corrupt on the server. I reset it, it should be OK now.

Nice little trailer, based on a HF tag-a-long I assume? Should serve you very well 8-)

Looks good.
Make sure you get the wheels balanced either statically, dynamically or you can throw in about three ounces of balance beads in each tire instead.
I pulled one of those little trailers 2800 miles behind my car several years ago and didn't balance the wheels. It shook the car top carrier I had on it about half to death.

Ya know, I've been thinking of doing the exact same thing to my HF trailer and removing the ugly green Zombie Response Team cargo pod. Except I was thinking of making it 24" high. Completely using up 1 4x8 sheet of 1/2" PT plywood.
