Maybe we see more aggressive models and designs than before.

Re: Hello again

Headlamp wipers, bigger wiper fluid tank on top of the steering gear, 45Ah battery, intake air warming system.

The headlamp wiper arms are removed and I don't know where to find new ones.

Re: Instruments not working (Volvo 66)

If I ground the wire but the voltage stab is broken it doesn't read full?
If I measure the ohms between the tank float connections it doesn't give any reading.
