Default My iron master trailer project

We have 2 of these steel benders and my goal is to get them both completely refurbed without spending much $ on them. This one works perfect, but it hasn't been serviced in who knows how long. We just add gas and replace the blades as needed, not good. Not to mention it looks like hell. lol

We use the ---- out of these things and its not something you see everyday. Custom built, probably back in the late 70's or early 80's. Cuts and bends up to #6 rebar on the job site.

These are the before pictures. I spent like 4 hours working on it yesterday on my own time. If I have time today I want to finish getting it prepped for paint. I already ripped all the wiring out so I can redo it all. I also want to put some decals for our company on the back and sides (those reflective ones like cop cars have).

I hope the end result comes out like what I have pictured in my head.
