That Tamiya tanker is my favorite stock trailer and the lack of decals makes it look really classy with that black rig of yours. Looking very good!

Favorite Truck: Knight Hauler- 3 of them
Current Projects: Finishing 2 of my Knight Haulers, 2 new van trailers awaiting being built into 28' scale pups, and also construction of 2 dollies on deck.
Fleet: Right now my operational fleet consists of one Knight Hauler, and 2 custom scale 48' flatbeds. One trailer is a tandem, the other is a spread. Both are polished, with wood decks and the spread is set up with a wireless lighting system and Alcoa replica super singles. The Knight has the light kit, as well as many extra LED's installed. I also have a slightly modified Tamiya van trailer. I also own a Toyota Tundra, stock except for aluminum wheels and S/S hardware.

Decided the old girl need some chicken lights. Made the strips out of 1/16 aluminum. Mounting them now and should have the lights wired in a week or two. Man this little strips are labor intensive.

Wow, very nice drilling of the holes on the strips there Jeremy! :smile: And the nice 45 miter cut for the strip behind the front fender finishes it off neatly as well! ;-)

Looking forward to seeing another update after you install the bulbs and put some juice to it.

Attaching them with exopy or thin tamiya double-sided tape.
