Trailer tie down question.

I bought a Featherlite 14' aluminum open trailer to use this year for track days. It has 2 D rings in the front and 2 in the back. I have a 99 Box. What are your suggestions for tieing the car down? Thanks, Bill, Pgh. Pa.

We put the front wheels in the chocks and run a strap up and over the front wheels to a strap guide and ratchet. In the rear we hook into the rear jack points and use a "x" pattern to the ratchets on the D rings. We also run a few miles down the road and stop to take in a couple clicks on the ratchets as the car settles in. Sorry no pics. I have been on this site for 5 years and still have no idea how to post a pic.
