well pimped out my new (to me) 1989 crawdad
first i rebuilt the trailer bearings, springs, tires exc.

then i installed the battery in the front cut a access panel so it wouldnt be on the floor ...
put in 2 rod holders
Installed a hds-8 up front Twisted Evil
5 hp nissan ob and a bow mount trollingmotor.. complements of jester jackson Very Happy





I was perswaded to go further taking all the seat brackets and corners out to be powder coated Thanks Dave !! ..the aluminum was oxidised .. so i got the parts back today and finished the job .. I also bought new seats for it and a nice cover .. what a difference ..
Have one thing left (I think ) im going to install led strip lights for night fishing on the inside rails ..
