      started that day to make a licenceplate holder - holder
      there is the plateholder,but i wanted to make the last 3 leds under it,so i made a plate big enough for the plate holder and that there is place for 3 more leds,yes 13 in total.
      and as everything ,it takes me hours to make it.
      left the garage at 9pm

      this here is Friday morning when the plate was finished



      while i was finnis inside the last things the mechanik connect it al to the fuse box.
      that was the deal, i do what i want,but the garage connect it al to the system

      all the leds are burning



      after 5 days from home to Rotterdam i was broke. happy that it was Friday .
      of my 27 things to do list there were 4 remain,so satisfied wirh the work i had done in the 8 days ,but still not finnished.

      in the upcoming week the painter will come to the truck for replace the vessel sticker,and place the licence number on the roof and backside of the cab,also repaint the wheel rings and paint the correct sunviser.
      the plan was to deliver the next weekend



      best regards Thijs

          the painted the wheel rings bleu instead of white

          But if boss insisted on white rings, what would he say when you replaced those by your chrome ones???

            He knew that i replace them for chrome ones.
            At the 10 wheels of the container chassis are al chrome ones. But he insist white ones at delevery.
            That is the company livery.
            For now.
            Normaly they had all chrome wheel caps, then i started with bleu ones in the chassis and later also on the truck. And more made them bleu.
            Later i switched to chrome while others made them white. My boss liked that and want them all white.
            But i spended lots of money for chrome ones,so i wont whites anymore. I like the chrome ones better

          How?

          i can stop it,when i'm parked somewhere
          But why would you stop it if it can do the cleaning by itself??.

          the cleaning is done by spraying diesel in the exhaust and burn it clean. that produce a heat between 700 and 800 degrees.
          when parked and thats happens ,it melts the tarmac away,
          Yeah! I should think it would. There must be a law somewhere which says thou shalt not set fire to thy exhaust and melt the tarmac. And Is that when it cleans itself or when you clean it or both?

            when the truck is parked and standing at the tarmac, the heat thats come out of it is blowing to the tarmac (exhaust exit) it melts the tarmac.
            then it's better to stop the cyclus ,it's start tiself on again when the sensor measurece
            there is to much soot in it.
            when the truck drives the wind take the heat away

            the inside is clean by itself,i can't do anything inside of it.
            the only part i can clean ,is polish the topplate a stainless steel plate

              Ah, thanks Thijs, now I get it. So it's an automatic ongoing process which for safety's sake you can stop when you're parked, but which restarts when you get moving again.
              Do you know, I wonder what your uncles would think were they to see the sort of vehicle their nephew drives nowadays. And to see the incredibly hard, skilled work he puts into it to make it as comfortable as possible to live in on long and often overnight trips. I know I often pull your leg (tease you), but you always amaze me at what you do with that truck, from the electrical wiring to buying curtains to making little tables for things.....
              Just great!

                yeah that would be great,for some things.
                but driving rules ,if when i go over the border,there rules have to be followed.

              OMG... that is a LOT of modifications you have done, and the amount of time is amazing!

              You will be so happy when everything is done. Sorry to hear about all the troubles and mistakes made.

              But to me, the new truck now looks awesome and personalised.

              When will the inaugural journey take place, the maiden voyage?

              Be careful and avoid ice-bergs.

                Soon repaired/replaced, presumably. But what very bad luck - on a brand new vehicle on which you have spent so much time and money. I remember with my first car, my little Morris Minor, a driver went straight into my front wing on a very narrow lane in icy conditions. It was at the top of a small hill and I was crawling up very slowly because it was treacherous going. She was coming from the opposite direction but seeing me braked too sharply. I gently guided my car into a farm gateway conveniently nearby, not daring to turn the wheel too much. But she still slid into me.
                I remember how I felt, almost in tears. The Morris was 3 years old, but it was my first car and I'd only been driving a short while.

                yes it's Always the same, avoid every thing that can damage the vehicle,
                and some Murphys law thing ruined everything for you

              and then it became saterday.

              they would arrive with the new one at 9am at our premmisses for delivery of the truck and the key transfer.
              we (Wesley and I ) arrived at 8.25am and a few minutes later the truck already arrived.
              we salesman of the truck ( not the one that sold the ttruck to us,he was just away for holiday) brought a big box with pastries .

              but after that it was a disepetion.

              my boss didn't looked like he was much intrested in it al ,didn't want on the phote for the key transfer ,which he Always let his dad do,and his dad hadn't the time probably.
              he went as a thief in the night.
              so the seller was also flabbergasted
              after a cup of coffie and a pastrie the boss signed for delivery and wwent outside to look if everything works.


              Unlocking of the sliding 5th wheel turned to be too high.
              we had to go to the garage quickly before they went home

              but first fill the tank with diesel.

              so this is the only image .pffffffff
