Hey Samuls35

I would get them to do it in 2 pak, dulux or PPG, and in the oven. I would get them to do the front of the trailer in stone guard (under seal) paint, which is thick and leaves a ripple type finish. It protects the metal because usually the stones don't penetrate it all the way through, also it is easy to touch up and over coat.

Regards

Of all places Supercheap have an excellent selection of 3M automotive paints including bitumen for underbody & stone guard for front surfaces. The best long lasting stone protection is Hot dip Gal.

Hi Im have been towing a trailer ( with bikes) for about 50years on and off , and a lot of dirt roads , and I have found that if you are painting it your self , with a brush a good paving paint is ideal, put plenty on the front surfaces and it is easy to touch up and dries in about an hour.
I think Solpah was one of the best for resisting stone chips.
Cheers Des.
