A friend asked me to finish his Low Boy Trailer for him. He has done a great job of the main structure, making it out of welded aluminium, but had hit a brick wall with making it look how he wanted.

So today I designed a 3D (well it will be) dress up piece for the hitch mechanism to hide the motor/mechanism for the hitch release.

This is the hitch and mechanism

and here is what I have come up with to hide it, I did cheat slightly as I pulled the gen-set from 3DWarehouse.

The next step is to turn it into smaller sections so that I can print it.

More as it happens and thanks as ever for looking.
