Ok, let’s do even more updates about what we have done on the trailer during the end of last year! 🙂

Below is from the end of October 2021!

After many years it was finally time to get the last detail done on the side door installation, a little simple stainless steel strip to make it look just like I want it thanks to Sofi and Max! 🙂

Also I got a pair of protecting roofs over the power in and outlets on the trailer thanks to Björn and Tobbe at TGPAB!

I also made sure to have my own inventory of led lamps to the trailer because I think it might be the worst junk I ever bought… 🙁 Everyone says “go led and you never need to change a lamp again” but if you ask me it’s just bullshit because the ones I mounted new when I switched out all lighting on the trailer a couple of years ago doesn’t have many hours on them but I have changed 3 and I got 2 more that is on the way to go out… really bad if you ask me!…

Ok, let’s do some more of this about what we have done on the trailer! 🙂

We made a little break on the trailer work during the summer of 2021 but in the end I September it was finally time again and we did install a sender in the waste water tank so we can see how much that’s in it, we also did the last stuff checking through the brakes fixed some lose backing plates / shields and got all moving stuff to move like that should and lubricated so they will continue to do that!..

And then we switched out the air ride leveling valves just to make sure they are ok and when we did I made it really easy to adjust the “standard” ride height on it just by moving a rod in a bushing so we really easy can lower it when we get to Germany next year (hopefully) on our way to England and Santa Pod Raceway!

Soon it’s not much big stuff left to do on it, just a lot of small stuff!

But it feels pretty good to see some kind of light in the tunnel! 😉

And then in mid October I felt it was time to start prepare for the 2022 season and go to Opus Bilprovning in Görla Norrtälje for the yearly inspection so we will be able to use our rig on the roads! 🙂 The year before I did not care about it because of Covid and I was pretty sure 2021 would be a year without racing for Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing so why waste money on it, right!? Anyway we did fix some stuff on the Scania truck last year to improve stuff we did know needed som TLC! 😉 And during 2021 we did continue to work on the trailer whenever we found some time for it, new air bags, new stuff in the ride ride system, found and fixed some issues with the brakes and much more when it comes to getting the trailer finished everywhere! And that payed off and also of course thanks to the great guys with an awesome customer service at the inspection place, just top notch if you ask me! 😀 That made us one big step closer to season 2022, really don’t know what it have to offer for us but we will be prepared for it and decide when some kind of series comes out in public!… This was actually the first time in 13 months that the rig left the shop area! I can tell it was happy to go for a ride! 😉

Pretty much direct after the inspection we finally after more then five years start to get satisfied with the front storage area! 🙂 Think it was in May 2016 that I connected some new led lamps and made a plan how it should look when I’m done with it, that’s was in October 2021!…

All stuff that can get damaged and are in the way when loading and unloading stuff is moved to a safer place, all air hoses and electrical stuff is cleaned up, we got a functional bathroom thanks to a fresh water tank from Bengtssons Smide, water pump and water heater from T.Grundström Plåtslageri and plumbing for waste and fresh water from Rörmekano in Vallentuna! I think it is just AWESOME GREAT!!

The life on a race track will be way more easier and soon, really soon I will be able to say the the trailer is done! 🙂 Feels really strange! 😉

Soon more to come about the trailer, stay tuned!

Ok, long time ago something happened here… But we have been doing things, especially on the trailer! 🙂

It’s time for an update!

Following pics are from the end of May 2021!

Me and Sofi did finish up the last stuff when it comes to the fresh water tank, she installed threaded bungs in the cap on the tank so we can fill it and get water to the water pump, ventilation for the tank and then also the fresh water tank sender unit so we simple can see how much water we got left! 🙂 Just excellent! 😉

Then it was time for some bathroom progress!

And how awesome is this!? 🙂

Peter from our partner Rörmekano in Vallentuna went by the shop and installed a new sink, shower and got all the plumbing stuff done in the trailer bathroom! And it looks just great, soon we will have a fully working bathroom in the trailer so it will be pretty much like being at home when we are at the track!

It’s all about having a good time and you will when everything around you is simple and good! 🙂

Plan was that he would continue with the rest of the plumbing stuff to the fresh and waste water tank but instead me and Sofi got a visit by COVID-19… 🙁 So we needed to cancel that for the moment!… But soon we will be able to wash our hands and take a shower next time we are going racing.

A huge thanks to Rörmekano for your support! 😀

Then due to the Covid shit I decided to cancel all the racing during 2021 so therefore it took to the end of August before we did some more progress on the trailer!….

But what an awesomeness! Me and Max got the water pump and water heater installed in the right place and then after that Peter and Patrik from Rörmekano in Vallentuna went by and did install all of the fresh hot and cold water tubing waste water tubing and I think it looks great! 🙂 I assumed all of that would take way much more space so this made me really happy because this is our storage space for our tent, tables, benches and much more that we got our in our pit space! Now when this are done I can do the last clean up when it comes to all the air tubing and electrical stuff in this area that looks like a real mess!….

After that it’s time to make the last things to make it a really smart storage area so all the stuff in there will have the special position to make it really simple to unload and load it!

Stay tuned, more new old news to come soon! 😉
