As you can see my "tent" i had set up fell down, and caused the roof of the tumbler to become a bowl, filling it up with water, THEN, causing my burrito roll around the edges to thus become unrolled, filling the inside with water as well. 

Then it all froze to the cardboard.  its trash.  .

BUT, with bad news comes good news this time.

I took in Dave's suggestion and went and hunted down a supplier here in town for some sheets of 18gauge steel.   He priced me a sheet at $35, and it will take about 10 sheets to do the body of the Tjr.  

Soooooo, thats what i'm gonna do, which renders that cardboard mock up useless anyway.

Shaggy, I was wondering before you trash it, can you give me the measurement on the card board or the wood frame.

yeah sure, are there any measurements in particular out of that group that you need more than others?

Sorry Shaggy, Why I was asking is because I am trying to learn how to work Adobe Acrobat 7.0. I wanted to see if the measurements are equal to yours more or less. Then I will understand how to work the measuring on the program. I did have a other problems, my computer could not handle the printing on the large scale like the cabin for the tumbler. But for other smaller prints my computer can. So want I am going to do is have Kinko print out the big stuff. I am going this route because Kinko wanted over two hundred dollars to print the whole thing!  Thanks, Terry

thats not a problem by no means
I'm not at home right now but i'll try to get measurements on the cabin before its pulled apart and gotten rid of.

over $200 dude that sucks! hopefully you can get that program figured out it will save you a good $150 or so.
