Removing Trailer Screws for Decal Installation

Postby Fastballs&Outdoors » Sat Jul 14, 2012 7:34 am

Not sure if this is the best place for this but i have a question about my trailer. i just got a new 6x12 and it has the screws on the outside not rivets. If i was wanting to put a decal on would it be okay to remove a screw then put it back in the same hole once the decal is put on over its place? i dont want to mess anything up or have stuff come loose and i really dont want to drill any other holes in it for sure.
I was just wondering if anybody has done that before i thought about attempting it.
Thanks,
Drew

Take them out a few at a time and just check the inside and shake stuff to make sure its all staying strong

Yes that is the BEST way to do that. Take them out and re-install :yes:

If your devlcal is big then your gonna have to have multiple people keeping the decal from sticking over the screws. Few at a time won't hurt. Just my opinion. Either way take pics and post it. :thumbsup:

id just cut a little bitty slit with a razor blade when ever you get to a screw hole and then you'll have it marked where they are and easy insertion.
