B.R.B.O. Western Star 4964 with flatbed

Recommended Posts

The straps are yellow ribbon that I got from hobby lobby, and I used what are called ‘splice clips’ to attach the straps.

splice clips are a U shaped automotive electrical connector, they are used to splice wires together, in their normal application they are crimped and soldered, in this particular application, they were just pushed onto the edge of the trailer bed and lightly squeezed together, this way I can remove the straps if I want .

Great build and very nice trailers.

The budhole rims on the trailers are awesome, simple but awesome.

Thanks, I think sometimes a budd style wheel just seems ‘right’. Everything else is always spokes or chrome/aluminum wheels, these make for a nice change of pace.

Well, it’s done:)  I’m going to try to get some good outside pics eventually, but here it is for now.

Excellent work on all three! The Western Star emblems on the horn covers are a nice touch.

Looks great, a really nice job!!! you could still top it out with one more though, as long as it is chained, or you could flip the top one and maybe get away with just straps ( I allways chained them as well as straps though just to be sure) anyway excellent work!!!
