    Is there a graphic online somewhere illustrating where the should be placed?

    I know they are to plug up screw holes, but which ones?

    I totally obsess over crap like this, and want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.

    Thanks one and all.

    You mean the little plastic plugs that come with the set? Um, not sure myself, but would be interested to find out.

    I am wondering about the same thing too, just bought one 3 days ago. Additionaly, how are you supposed to connect the trailer to Prime? My connection seems pretty loose, or is that just the way it is?

    My trailer sits on Prime's peg pretty nicely. It doesn't snap or lock into place, it just kind of rests on it. No turning axis though, it turns him into a bus.

    However, I am displaying my commander attached to the rear of the Fansproject Classics Trailer, and it looks absolutely awesome.

    ^^^This.

    I asked the same question after I got mine, and then just laid them out and put them in based on that. Don't feel bad, you guys aren't the first to ask, won't be the last, just know you WILL have leftover pegs, I think I had 4 on mine.

    they gave you extras in case you loose some. Its good thinking on FP's part, which we know they do very well.

    1 or 2 yea, makes perfect sense. But 4? Makes me think I'm missing something somewhere.

    That was my thought too, but it was two of each color, so it actually worked out to about "normal" for extra pieces

    Thanks. I actually got the Protector set before this and for that set there's a way to "lock" Hot Rod into the trailer so I was kinda expecting the same for this set.
