You cant Google for it if you dont know the name. I didn't know it was called T-Track till I spotted it in the store! I didn't know it existed outside of table saws. I was always like "yeah, thats a cool slot thing in that table saw".

If you do go to the store they will probably have the right bolts/fixtures to make your tie downs with.

I don't think something like that would even be allowed on the roads up here in WA state.

The troopers would pull you over laughing their asses off and ask a person "what the hell were you thinking sir?!"

The white strip led's are very very bright on a 3s lipo. Feed 12v dc into a few of the 2m strips and you will have a very nice and low power internal lighting system

I bought mine at Woodcraft in May and it works fantastic with gearlegz or homemade tie downs..

Thanks for the info...I think this is what I will do. Much easier than doing an inverter and 110v lighting...

Well, I removed the Harley Decals, which proved to be a major eight hour job, and got the graphics all done. So, the outside looks great. The inside is functional but my friends are forcing me to do a makeover. Ha, ha.

Anyway, here it is.

Soon, soon sir James. I'm going with epoxy spekle like for a garage. My friend did it and it came out great. Then I will add shelves and whatnot. I've been waiting until it's too cold to fly and that seems to be about now

Thanks! He saw it at the field last weekend and he liked it very much. The nice thing is that it doesn't have any rivets. Sweet trailer; I picked it up this spring from a Harley guy that had it for sale last year for way too much. He put it back up for $2K less!! I jumped on it. I imagine I'll have it the rest of my days.

I noticed the lack of rivets....I imagine that wasn't a cheap option from the factory. Makes it easy to do graphics, though, and yours looks good. The "ghost" planes behind the main images really set it off.
