« Part 14: Rear wheel rims Part 15 of Peterbilt truck series Part 16: Ornament »

The pieces become smaller. Her are the pictures from the roof lights.

First put some dowels with CA glue in a piece of padouk:

After sawing:

After sanding the crude form:

Turning on the lathe. This with the greatest caution I turned with…...sandpaper:

When it was done I realized I made 8 but needed 10. My disc sander was mounted on the lathe and I didn,t want to do a conversion. I put one piece in my drill and made a light on the discsander. This was much easier and faster:

And after made a small bevel on the lights they where mounted on the roof. You also can see the horns made out of a golf tee:

Thanks for wathing
