Thanks 4 your Support.

A little break in the green before going home.

Image


After work at home. This week is easy so I'm at home everyday.

Image


Paper mill, my 2nd tour for unloading today. Then quickly recharge and go back home.

Image


Thursday. Met a friend on the way to the weekend, you might remember, I painted the rims on this Scania.

Image


Clear everything. Bag, bottles and off to the car.

Image


Friday. My truck is in the workshop, I get new things. Now back home, and tomorrow I am booked again to paint the rims.

Image


Saturday. Today rims and wheel hubs were painted again. Again in classic blue and white.

Image

Image

Image

What do you say?


So in the evening I got my truck back from the workshop.
Which is an advantage here in the workshop that my key is kept in a night safe.
So I can pick up my truck at night and I am not bound by the opening hours.

Image


Why was my truck in the workshop?
I got the turn assistant installed. And my 5th Wheel was set further back (for the hose holder).

Image

Image


See ya Nect Week

Nice safety addition to your truck! Looks far better than the corner eye. Can't wait for the hose holder

Thanks @JUseeTV for your Support.

Many new Stuff is Coming

Load in Karsbach at a recycling company. It's a short detour, as many tours are currently being canceled.

Image


So when I arrived at the customer in Nuremberg, I have to wait until 7 a.m. for the wheel loader driver to come.
But at least be the first here, then the rest of the day will be very relaxed.

Image


45 minutes break, which is used to go for a walk and of course to take photos. :mrgreen:

Image


So finally the time has come, my grill goes to the painter. During this time, I'll build in my colleague's grill because he's on vacation anyway.

Image


Today I went to a Spedition to look at a Scania V8 side panel and possibly buy it. By chance I met a friend there again.
His truck is a stunner. :shock:

Image


I bought the side panel.
How so? You will see that here soon. So check back often.

Image


This is such a quick lunch for me. A quick 5 minute terrine.

Image


This is one of my friend's trucks with the Scania 3 axles. Also a feast for the eyes.

Image


Today I put the grill back on my colleague's truck, who has now also brought around his 14-day vacation.
Do you know what that means?

Image


My grill is back from the painter. I'm so speechless, it just looks so awesome. And again,
I've come a step further to drive my dream truck.

Image


The next day, of course, caught the right weather. But no matter what the weather is, nobody can spoil my good mood.

Image


After work at home. More changes are planned for the weekend. I hope the weather fits.

Image


The weather was perfect. So:

- Painted steps.
- Wheel arch extension painted
- Steps painted in the side panel.

Image

Image

Image

Image


I hope you like the new design as much as I do, there will be more changes. As is well known, the journey is the goal. And you're never finished anyway.


All stay safe and sound. And as a friend who unfortunately passed away recently said:

Stay strong. (1975-2020) :(

My sincere condolences for your friend ,may his soul rest in peace.

Your DAF XF is really the best looking XF 106 I've seen, are you going to modify the Scania sideskirts to fit the DAF ?

Stay strong indeed, RIP

The black grille makes such a big difference ! It looks awesome, and so do the black details !

Next steps will probably include the headlights & skylights frames as well as the chrome "wave" on the sideskirt ?

Thanks for your Support.

Friday. Meet the moving floor gang. Wash nicely together and do nonsense.

Image


Glued my new sticker that I ordered. Well which are the new ones?

Image

Image


The next day there were some problems, I wanted to drive to the customer in the evening, but unfortunately there was a fire in the neighboring company at that time. But nobody wanted to let me through, because everyone thought I wanted to go to the company that burns, which was not true. So I finally got to my customer on dirt roads and was able to call it a day.

Image

Image


The next day I flew a long way over the A8 with this beautiful Volvo.

Image

Image


After work at my truck stop on the A73. My work colleague will be here soon, and then we will have something to eat.

Image


On the way to Karlsruhe, I will spend my weekend with a friend there. We want to pimp his truck a little.

Image


Dinner at the customer's. A pizza with minced meat and chicken sticks with cheese dip

Image


Unsettled. I am now waiting for my buddy and then it goes to him in the company. Here, of course, I am standing in the middle of Karlsruhe in the residential area.

Image


Trucks are ready. We then drove to a fallow site for a little photo session. I guess I took nice photos.
These trucks are used to drive tractors to Italy every week. Trailer with tandem and tridem

Image


New week new luck? Unfortunately, no. I really drive garbage once every six months, and right now they have to take out a complete cross beam for me.
In this case even with the welded holder. Now I have to go to the workshop to have everything fixed.

Image


Load paper again for Erfurt. Here you can see a slightly different loading point.

Image


On the way to Erfurt came into a bad weather front. Fortunately, I hit the exact center.

Image


On the way home yesterday I took another small photo for you.

Image


Today I read out all the trucks, this has to happen every 3 months at the latest. So it was time for us again, so I drove off all the trucks again.

Image


Have a GREAT Weekend. :mrgreen:
