Almost finished was sick last week! I have to attach the chains to secure the load and attach the side rails and put the decals on and some minor weathering. All in all I'd say it looks nice with the peterbuilt! This is the first trailer I've done and can't wait to start the texaco tanker to go with the kenworth. I am gonna take a break from cars and trucks and finish my sons triceratops diorama, he's been bugging me to finish it!

Thanks! I'm still having issues on how I should secure the coils. The kit came with copper chain and the instructions don't specify how to secure them to the trailer it just has a picture of the chains running through each coil then down to the bumper rail. I don't really want to spend more money on this purchasing the after market chain tighteners there has to be a cheaper way. Any suggestions?

I know you have this bad boy done, and all, but you can purchase more chain from Walmart, of all places.....Just go to the jewelry isle and the sell 8' of chain in black for $3.99.....I've bought about 5 sets.....I don't think I'll ever run out of chain.....I'll take a picture of what you need to look for in a bit.....
