Talking Any of ya'll North Easternedrs Interested in Building a FTE Communal Trailer?

I've got the straight front axle, spindles, spring assembly from my F1. I don't want to scrap it and think it would make a great small to medium utility trailer. I probably wouldn't recommend carrying anything bigger than a riding mower on it. I've got some new LED trailer lights and wiring. Would there be anyone here interested in working together to build and supply parts for a trailer that us FTErs could share and use?

Parts needed:
-2in receiver hitch,
-steel L channel to make the edges and horizontal supports
-wood planking for the floor
-zink hardware to bolt the floor boards to the metal supports
-maybe some expanded metal to make a rear gate/ramp that folds up and down?

I may be crazy, but i thought it couldn't hurt to see if anyone was interested?

Good on ya for helpin out with your trailer. If i had one, i'd do the same. A local buddy of mine offers the same with his small trailer. I no longer have the F1 front axle. It was dropped off at scrap metal heaven.
