Hi,
I have worked on the electrical system and other details. The dashboard got lighting (in the pictures it looks brighter than it is). The bonnet needs extra space so that the corners of the bending machine disappear.

Some Tabelwork to do yseterday...

At the living room table yesterday at the shit weather finally I could do something on the chain ...
I have sacrificed a SW4 key, so that I get no tendon sheath ignition ... With a cordless screwdriver it just goes better ... For each chain link 4 screws by hand, then screw with the screwdriver (torque adjusted) to stop. Then bolt in and now the fumbling with the U-disk and the split pin. The fact that the bolts end quite far inside, the sapwood must be shortened. The bending is not so easy in the cramped place ...

I do like those fixing screws Florian. The chains are very long too! Maybe two days work! :?
