    Looks like willow fluff, though it's very early. We have a few days of it floating about but usually in May. Poplar is similar but does not appear until May/June time. However, it's certainly the seeds of a tree. Good job you managed to get the wheels inside.

    i told you about the weight indicater on the dashboard.
    here is mine,with 2 heavy loaded containers on the chassis.



    and with 2 empty containers.



    max weight that may be 1st axle 8000kg second axle 7500kg and third axle11,500kg
    oops

    the images of the wheels,is before painting,i was removing them there.
    didn't make a image of the wheels yet.
    the wheater was perfect,a Sunny warm day.
    if i washed it ,it is a lot easier to spot the places that need work.

    Oh my poor Thijs. You know that I'm not laughing at what happened, but at the way you tell it. How is it that there are so many fluffs on the fifth wheel yet I can't see them anywhere else? I've enlarged the picture (this software doesn't enlarge so well as the old one did) but it is difficult to see if there are any on the wheels. If it really was bits of fluff was the paint still wet? Or was it really snow (it's cold enough here for that although the skies are fairly clear)?
    You must tell me how it is now, because seriously it must have been maddening for that to happen, especially after the truckwash was closed and the garage's cleaner broken. Everything seemed to be against you. But you'll win through. And there is plenty of time before the show, you don't need to do the truck wash yet, do you? It'll only get dirty again.
    I think the Highway Cruiser deserves to be right in the front line on the day of the show. Pity there aren't prizes, you'd win alright after all the work you're putting in to it.

    all decorated with those damned fluffs.
    Thijs, Thijs, Thijs, I am falling off the chair with laughing.
    you and your fluffs.
    What were they - off the willow trees? Although it's a bit early in the year yet for that.
