    Did some more digging this afternoon and I did find original military green I think. I found some more yellow numbers that match the diamond symbol.

    Also here are some pictures of the whole trailer. This is after spending 3 hours with a hammer and block straightening the front and back.

    The front of the trailer was so bowed out when I picked it up that the hand brake would not move.

    took a look under the trailer today as I prepped it for sandblasting tomorrow. It seems someone added 2 rows of c channel and a 3x3 angle iron for extra bracing. after looking at the floor and realizing I have a piece of expanded metal plenty big to cover it I decided I plan to cut our some of the hacked in braces and weld in some clean straight ones, then cut out the floor and install expanded metal and a rubber mat. That way it can never hold water again, but I can still hold stuff in there with the rubber mat or plywood. There is only about one area of floor 1'x1' that is even usable at this point.
