Waiting for my load at the customer's. The waiting for loading took 2 hours because one of the excavators was defective.
During this time I was out and about a little in Stuttgart and also got something to eat in a bakery.

I dont know if it's legal, but it personally think that if you disconected the stock side marker on the sideskirts and painted them blue it would look waaay better :)

Thanks for your Support.

Now to your Questions:

@Nielsen_

Actually, a lamp at the side must always shine or reflect orange. That's why I haven't settled this yet, but as soon as it gets warmer again, I'll tackle the problem.

@Dotec

Yes, exactly, I load there quite often because I often do a round trip. :mrgreen:

@JellAy

No, it's not worth it, because the different tires wear differently. The tires on the lift axle are the least, because it is lifted when empty. In addition, it often happens that you get a nail or something in the tire. Then you are forced to change it. So in the worst case you have 5 different worn tires. Depending on the manufacturer, a tire costs around € 600 - € 800. So of course you try to use the tires to the end.

I hope I could answer your questions. :mrgreen:
