          shipspotting, but no vessels in sight, so it became truckspotting.
          with the sample dashboard table on it's place, including the michelin mascottes.
          and are the lighted? offcourse, but picturepush is playing up again. next try in a few hours

              the first try of the table.
              started with a paper mold ,then a carton mold and then a plywood mold,and as you can see,far from good.
              a lot of gaps



              this side wasn't perfect,the other side also not

              also the table top was to short measured,thatswhy the paper and ducktabe, to make it bigger



              but it's just a first try, though in the old highway cruiser was easyer to make it

                the second mold, also not good

                atleast for the 2 side parts, the table top is good, just i let saw there a smal line of to follow the dashboard line.
                the long outher lines a let the saw at the woodshop so i get straight outher lines





                still not good enough, made a thirt set of sides



                even if it looks that brother rubber is out of the middle, it's in the middle.
                the black glas is out the middle, there is a camera in it for the line guard and some more. why it's nit in the middle??????
                in front of the duck there i a transparant small line in the black glass, thats the middle of the truck.

                another problem was the maut device ,the German toll collect.
                by not sticking it on the window and turn it upside down is this the deepest way of placing it, resulting in the lowerst way of placing the table

                  the thirt set of table sides

                  close to perfect now, just a mm here or there



                  mascottes also placed now



                  at the front and back will come a 3cm high edge

                        but still white lines at them



                        even before the truck was delivered at the garage i ordered the thongs ,and they are still not placed,or even ready.
                        the backside issn't painted
