Time´s flying and i´m trying to diagnose a "pling" sound i get from the transmission some times. I cant replicated the the exact movement but i appears now and then on often after gear changes. i´ve been over propshafts, emergency brake, most of the bearings and nothing seems obvious, nor can i replicate the sound when the car is up in the air.
So i tend to go on with other projects.
So the dual battery setup has startede. I got a ctek splitcharger last christmas, and the "pond" for the middle seat.
Test fitting the CTEk and a breaker. I´m not sure its the way i want to go.. so its back to the drawing board.
Earlier this May there was a Outdoor fair close by and we went there to look for an extension to the MSR hiking tent. There was an interesting little detail to a rooftop tent at the fair.
The l shaped rails with a cargo net attached.. This is was a great idea for boots and shoes when camping in the wet.
So now all i need is to find these sort of rails and cargonet from biltema.
In the workshop department, the truck had a new fanbelt, wich was a 15 minutes job
Out with old, and in with the new (no picture...)
In preparation for Overlanding Expo 2019 in august we where looking for a bike rack that could swing away from the truck, so we could carry bikes but still use the backdoor. My thule pivots down and leaves 50 cm to open the door..
I came really close to buying this dutch swing away tow ball carrier for fitting my existing bike rack, but 725€ was WAY over the budget..
Looking at multiple fiamma campervan bikeracks and "dreaming" multiple spare wheel carrying ideas.. 🤣
And found on used i wanted to buy online and weld some sort of mounting plate for...
I read the ad again until it dawned on me that it stated that it was for hanging ON the spare wheel, it was 7km from home and the bloke was negotiable for price..
Suddenly i was out the door, and came home with this "little" gadget
Bikes tested on and they clear the tent underside
And clear the bodyside when the door is opening.
It needs new straps to fix it down, but thats fixable.
Next project is rear brakepads.. hopefully a quick job
And the a new sump gasket (that will be at my mates garage)
Det var mina gamla vinter däck som gick sönder men det var bar en tidsfråga de är ca 8-9 år gamla men hade mycket mönster kvar.
Har funderat mycket på nya däck men först ska jag hitta en ny bil att sätta dom på, har lite svårt att bestäma mig vilken bil model jag vill ha, Forden har ju fungerat bra och jag har inte fastnat med den än men det var ju nära i vintras med släpet. vi kommer att fort sätta att kör på små och dåliga vägar i framtiden så det kommer att bli riktiga offroad däck till nya bilen. det är det första jag kommer att köpa till bilen plus mycket mer:)
