• At the initial build phase we purposely started with as few holes in the cabin as possible in the knowledge that as needs were established we could add things like rooflights, vents and windows. Much easier (and cheaper) to do it this way than to start with too many holes and the headache of how to block them off.

    Anyway, we've decided that for several reasons, not least to make peering out at our surroundings easier, that it was time to enlarge the rear window from the original 700x300mm to 700x450mm.

    Dodging showers and fighting with a jig-saw while teetering on a ladder would not win any health and safety prizes but the resultant pictured aperture, with Sikaflex sealing all the laminates, means that a new Seitz S4 sliding window can shortly be dropped in.

    The 700x300mm window that was removed will eventually find a home in the front bulkhead making it much easier to see forwards from within the cabin.

Tweaks and fixes are an ongoing part of the project. This series of pages form a blog - of sorts - and is intended to give a flavour of the day-to-day realities of living with the truck as issues crop up and tweaks and fixes progress. Many of the posts eventually end up getting written up properly and included in the main body of the Trip Truck site; so if you think you have read any of the older posts somewhere else, you almost certainly have.
