Default chrome top starter box pegs? can anyone help

I have searched and searched some more, I bought a chrome top starter box but it does not have alignment pegs, they were lost or broken somewhere along the line. Does anyone know if any place sells these pegs? Or has a viable alternative to the pegs? Thanks so much guys, starting this thing is a pain without them...

mine broke after a year or so, so i went and bought a 3/4" dowel and cut into little 1" tall discs. then i screwed two small screws under each one to secure it good.

key it to your chassis and enjoy

I went to Lowe's and got some different size nylon spacers/tubes out of the little bin boxes on the nut and bolt aisle. Then just put a bolt through the chrome top from the bottom, put the spacer on it, and then a lock nut on top. Tighten it up and you are good to go.
I ususlly just set the chassis on the top lined up with the starter wheel, and trace the chassis outline on the chrome with a sharpie. Put the pugs just outside of that and it is aligned.
If you need a pic, PM me with your # and I'll send one to your phone.

Heck, I threw my pegs away! I couldn't stand them moving around, not lining up correctly. I took some aluminum angle, about an inch and a half long and put two screws in each. Holds the car tight to the box and lines up EVERYtime!
