Finished up the brake setup this weekend.
Cable brake works great...
Need to pick up some RV Jacks and weld the jack receivers on.
After that the frame should be ready to go to the Powder Coater.

Is that brake lever from the original trailer or aftermarket?

It's the original one but if you google it you can find replicas/replacements on sites like etrailer.com,
Example: https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-an ... BUQAvD_BwE
These replicas don't look as beefy as the old WWII stuff...
This particular one was rusted to heck and took a lot of soaking and such to free it up and clean it.
Tried to keep as many original parts as possible but the more I push forward the more the original parts go by the wayside for improvements.

Ended up putting a round trailer jack receiver on each corner, made two from some 2inch tube I had. Now I can choose which corner(s) to put jack(s) on. I still have only 2 jacks, but pending on how it goes I may pick up two more.
Also bolted up the brackets I made for the Wrangler taillights. I am going to use some 97 Wrangler taillights I had laying around for now. If the lights end up getting destroyed down the road I may go with recessing LED's in the rear frame.
Now to set up some type of anti-sway bar that can be quick disconnected, there are several ideas I am thinking of, I'll see what happens. That will be the last step before the frame goes to the powder coater....

Finished welding on the mounts for the trailer jacks and friction sway control.
Clocked the pivot bracket (made a new one) for the brake cable a little more and bulked up the bracket (Original on left, New on Right in pic below).
Sprayed some rubberized coated on the bracket for good measure.
The frame is now officially ready for the powder coater.
Now a day off work without rain would make it much easier to throw the frame in the back of the truck and get it to the powder coater.
