Awesome truck, Jim, but that front bumper just looks weird.
Like the truck has a bad underbite or something...

I know, I know, the bumper ain't right. I've been pulling the AC parts so I can just go to the standard non-bumped-out grille surround. This will just work better without extenders.

Made a trip out to Nakatanenga yesterday (Nakatanenga.de) to pick up some swag.

I'm pretty excited about this 130 liter stainless steel fuel tank made in Germany for Nakatanenga. The quality is awesome. Right now I'm play around with the fuel sender to see if I can get the float to work better with the added capacity, otherwise it will be "full" for a long time before it starts to drop.

Also got some other stainless bits and a nice fat EGR block off plate which will work nicely for welding on the threaded bung for the temp probe.

I installed the high capacity tank today. The thing fit pretty well, nothing crazy was required to get it in. Fortunately this truck isn't very rusty and bolts come out when they're supposed to. I'm a little worried about filling the tank because the press-fit fuel line connectors didn't go back on as tightly as they were to begin with. I'll just have to take it easy and make sure I've got no leaks.

Also, I was trying to adjust the fuel sender to get a better range of the fuel gauge, but it didn't really work out. So now I've got 40 liters in the tank but the gauge is just barely above empty. At least I know it's moving, but this will be some kind work in progress.

And I found yet another half-assed repair on this truck - I screw and piece of rubber in the fuel tank to plug a leak.

130 liters we about 35 gallons US. You'll be able to do some serious miles between stops.

Yeah, the idea is to fill up with tax-free fuel at home and range far and wide. It doesn't take avoiding many fill ups in Denmark or the UK to pay for the tank.
