Hey guys,
In this thread I'm going to post some shots from my not-so-frequent trips around Europe. I am a very J-spec guy (reference: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=184220), so don't expect anything Holland style. I decided to start a new profile, still on 1.27 until the big ProMods 1.20 update; I'm driving on a combination of ProMods, RusMap and ItalyMap.
I will post in the next weeks some shots from my trips, expect me to change the truck over the time when I will be more financially stable.
Enjoy!

Having to rely on limited personal finaces and a small loan of a million dollars of 50k euros, I managed to buy this used 2008 Scania R480.
Image

With over 1.3 million kilometers, it was a bold move to buy it, but the mechanic assured me that all the parts were in order and the previous owner was very kind to the machine, almost always cozy highway kilometers.
Image

Unfortunately, the truck wasn't exactly in a pristine condition: fitted with some custom parts, some ugly cheap plastic sideskirts, white painted wheels, a beige front grill and very worn paint and tires.
Image

Anyway, after a long wait and some research (original parts take time and money), I returned the truck to its glory:
- New pearl white Highline original paintjob
- New dark front grill with Scania badge
- New sunvisor with lamps
- Full steel rims and wheels
- New Goodyear Regional (front) and Marathon (rear) tires
- Double air horn on the roof
- New driver side mirror
- New rear lights with plastic cover
- New front high beam and DRL lights (for new security standards...)
- Removed sideskirts for a true J-spec experience!
Image
Image

On the inside, the changes were subtle: new white light computer, Telepass, a TomTom satnav, two air deflectors and other small bits.
Image

I am also using, bought for a dime from my old company, a Krone Profi Liner trailer. Kinda spacious, nothing special.
