Red face My trailer redo

I have been looking for an 18' car haulin trailer for a while and had priced a new one. The local dealer seemed to never have them in stock so I could look at them. So I just browsed Ebay and looked there but they were kind of far away. So a buddy turned me on to one that was for sale on another truck site and I wound up buying it. I picked it up and got home with it and quickly put it to work. I loaded up a frame for delivery. Delivered it fine and on the way home a tire tread flew off and bent up a fender. my spare was flat too.Luckily I was close to home.

My plans are to redo the wiring,lights, pressure wash it, new fenders and paint it, go through the bearings and brakes. get some new wheels and tires and spare. The wheels are 5x5'' pattern but they were drilled also for 4 3/4'' to fit the hubs and were a little off to say the least.

I also have to get a trailer brake controller for my truck.
Heres a pic of its first job,hauling the swb frame.
