    The "month of tilted cabins".... hope all well with both of you guys trucks, and that it wasn't too expensive of a repair.

      Do you like the roof lights of the daf? Would be another argument for a daf, since your boss does not like your light bar.

        Yes i like them. My boss finds it a problem because of the filhty air around it.
        but thats issn't a problem.
        there are sun visers with 4 loghts in it.
        so could place one on it , or a ledbar.
        not that great looks as a lightbar. But with the 300watt ,one hell of a light.
        and al the lights will be led.

        but still nothing.
        btw. Today it's TSI ROAD CARGO 20th celebration.
        i had 18 with them.

          Gratulations. Nevertheless your boss could update the homepage. He is still announcing the change of the fleet to Euro5. Now you will do the next step together.
          He should also show some new trucks then, according to the new rules. I see a lot of old Volvos.
          And some colleagues even drive a pink Scania! In this case you should not have the problem with some individual features on your truck!!!

            Yeah he don't do much about the web page.
            its now all facebook.
            see at tsi road cargo.

            also there is a video of me see the post of rene blok 16 januaru made by the girl wich i shown also her images here of the hc.

            the pink trucks are those he had buyed by taking over a bankrupsy trucking company.
            within a year they were al painted white.
            to much troubble because of the former owner .

              He-he! Yesterday I found two of the HC on Flickr and fav'd them. Today an email from Flickr arrived saying I had a new follower - presumably the poster of the photos.

                  No, I know it's not you, it gave the follower's name on Flickr.
                  Try https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=...20Road%20cargo
                  Hover over one of the images and bottom left is "transport in movement". Click on that and it takes you to the two photos plus another TSI truck, and also the name of the one who posted it, which is the name Flickr gave me.
                  If you then click on one of the HC photos you go to a Flickr page with a larger image. Underneath in blue are names of those who faved it.

                    i found those images

                  the HC need a repair for about a 2 or 3 thousend euro's.
                  to much for the 3 months left.

                  past thuesday i had to park him at the premissis

                  it's over and out and the end for the HC.

                  today i got the news he was sold within 2 days

                  no more HC

                  or is it????????

                  today he ringed me that he bought me a merc.
                  the one i wanted, the giga space

                  in about 3 months there will be a new HC.
                  yes i want to take the name with me.
                  if the boss allowed it.

                      no not much more
                      last week ,Wednesday in the freezing cold Wesley made him for 95 % empty,only the nessecairy stuff stayed in the cab,because i should park him at Thursday.
                      but thanks the cold other trucks broke down also ,so i couldend step over on a other one,the need them for replacment for the others.
                      so i stayed on the HC till last thuesday.
                      the reason of the early end is of that he need a repair of 2 a 3 thousend euro's, a bearing in the gearbox.
                      that need a whole day to repair that,
                      and a driving truck sells better than one that had to be towed,
                      thatsway his early retirement. as longs it rolls,the price will be better. but if he repairs it,the price won't be better,so better to park him and sell him like he is,and keep the money in his pocket

                      at the garage of the company they shall demontage the lightbar,neckermann mudflaps and the chrome wheelrings.

                      compare of all the place in the HC ,the Volvo globetrotter XL cab is a mobile crawl space.
                      but i think i use the wrong name for that,but it is the space under your house ,where you only can crawl.
                      a crawl space,but it has wheels,so a mobile crawl space.

                      yes good news at last

                      he ringed me this morning for congratulate me ,i asked him if he got me my present ,a new truck ordered.
                      no he didn't ordered one.
                      late afternoon he ringed me again,to gave me my present.
                      a merc giga space,didn't ask for howmuch HP

                        Great news Thjis and exciting times ahead. Have I understood correctly that the boss has definitely allowed you to keep the HC name for the new truck? I hope so!

                        yes just about 91 nights of sleep before i get it.

                        will be long nights

                        by that time i will get my holiday mostly used for the merc,so i know what is what and where,
                        and how to remove parts when i want something more to do

                        for that i didn't had heard it that i may keep it .
                        i have to send him a mail with what i want and if it's payable.
                        the name won't that be expencive,but do he want it.
                        i don't get airhorns on top of the cab, or anywhere else,but i may buy them by myself aslong there are out of the driving air.

                      So did you already order one of these?

                      I guess the building time will be three months to do it right!
