    Off the top of my head, I'd say use one of the G2 Prime voice boxes, but it would be too small. Maybe build what you need, shouldn't be too hard, some light plastic sheeting and something to heat it with to make the curves (says the guy who's never tried such a thing).

    The silver looks great, can't wait for the finshed product.

    i got it from ebay (the seller has no truck-sets atm) and importet it for 70$ icl. shipping to germany, stipped of the stickers (that was pain in the ass), cleaned it with sandpaper and soapwater and sprayed 3 layer to all sides and 5 layers to the top


    thats it :)

    I asked my Dad about that chromespray-stuff.
    He used it several years ago when he was building some truckmodels.
    Well, he said that the spray won't dry ever. When he used some clearcoat it got flat-grey...
    Weird stuff. What about drying in the sun? Sunlight is always something different, maybe it'll work o.o

    Not going to lie, I like the effort put in, but the trailer being a tri-axle kind of puts me off. Paint work looks great though.
