Did the pup on our super b a few years ago. Cost 4000 to have about half the steel replaced, not including the steel, and 6000 to have it sandblasted and painted afterwards. Thought the paint job was a bit too expensive. This was done at professional shops in Taber. Last year we had our local young gung ho welder do the lead. We bought the panels and he replaced pretty much all the sides and repaired the slopes and painted it. He charged us about 8000. I think he did a good job. The paint job isn't as good as the pup but it's good enough for a 20 year old farm trailer. We'll see how it lasts.

sandblasted it myself at the colony for around $180 an hour took me 8 hours, then towed it home and etched it and painted it with primer and paint with harder, problem I made is didn't wait long enough between primer and paint and white primer and white paint wasn't a good idea.
generally painting a trailer white is a dumb idea, but we keep doing it.

Putting the trailers back together after blasting/painting. They came out looking real nice. Put on new tarps, and the Michels chute openers and electric tarps we had. New mud flaps, and new rubber gromet inserts around the lights. Picking up a roll of that reflective tape tomorrow as well. Here is my attempt of posting a picture.
