As long as the truck is out in the open and you can get IN/OUT easily?   Ugh, with only being able to crawl through the cab into the bunk while in the garage it is a real PITA.  Pull wire, get stuck, crawl inside and unstick wire, crawl out and pull, get stuck, crawl inside...........repeat.   Man, why do I make everything SOOOOO difficult?   It was raining and cold so I wasn't going to do it outside.  Weather isn't getting better til next weekend and I have other stuff that needs done then.


Sometimes I just want to sell everything and take up checkers?

 

Oh, for the people that never heard the Beach Boys.......

They're only 3/4" lights?   They light up pretty good.

What do you have under your cab? I remember you having a picture at night one time.    I want to mount some under mine, just looking for ideas.

I Just have small incandescent rectangle marker lights, surface mount kind.   I mounted them to a piece of metal so just the edge of the light shines out the bottom of the cab lip.  I do have 3/4" LED under the bunk.

Larry, sounds quite funny.

Today I also did some tinkering with wires in a sleeper. Did it inside the shop and it was colder there than outside. A pretty nice day today, up to 26 Celsias / 80F and sunny. But I have a sleeper so far not a truck. So didn't want it to roll out and than back in in the evening.

Sure worth to mention the result of your job is cool :thumb:

Same here in central Pennsylvania, and its my day off too.       Problem is I slept on the couch until 3:30pm and missed most of it.

I checked them out at Beaver on Friday night.   Looks good.  Driving home Saturday night, I could see the faint reflection in the corner stainless of the trailer.  I should have gotten a picture.....I'll try to remember in a couple weeks when I get it out again.

Now that explains it. Why I could not get to sleep last saturday night. Too much light coming through my bedroom window. I thought China had dropped one on us in Ohio. Thanks Larry. Don't think of us old folks needing our sleep.
