The whole back of the topper is going to get a repaint. Those spots are from diesel fuel sloshing about. THe stains are permanent and in need of a total repaint!

Next the holes were drilled in two stages, 1/8" then 1/4"

Then I installed the nut-serts, a #10/24 size, and then installed some screws.

I think that is a stealthy install...

I burned the LED interior lights in the topper for hours. Into the night they were throwing some decent light!

And that's where I left it all at about 2030 in what was turning out to be a chilly evening

Looks good.    I expected some shelving inside the topper,   Let?s see some nighttime shots of those new found back up lights

OK, just as soon as I get them wired in, which may be as early as today

I have similar lights in the bumper of the bus. Very effective.  Once you use them you?ll want them on everything. Even the GJ

Update: I talked with Jeff at Diesel Ops today.

HE called Fleece Diesel to check on my parts. Apparently Fleece actually spins up each turbo kit to ensure the units produce the airflow they advertise. Mine is getting spun today and will likely ship to me tomorrow or Wednesday.

The CP3 kit is nearly completed. There was a national backorder of Cp3 pumps, but Fleece got a shipment Saturday. My pump is currently torn down so they can modify it to remove the 3K defuelling issue. Following reassemble, it, too, will be shipped to me. I'd suspect getting something on deck next week.

Second Update: Talked to Tristen up at Motor-Ops. He has all the tune parameters and will be building the tunes along with a couple other of his associates for the new upgrades.

I really like these guys from the frozen glaciers north of the US somewhere. Just good folks with a willing attitude and their tune which I have been running for some time are just great.

One thing T mentioned to me that settled in was how the EPA was coming after our popular tuners. He said that he thought that Idaho Rob had been fined $20 million which effectively shut him down for life. So if you think about it, if you want to get a tune from someone who won't mysteriously disappear in the middle of the night, go north of the border. And up there, these guys are #1, again double tapping on my assertion that Motor Ops is a great place for tunes

Closer to $96,000 from the legal documents I was looking over.  It wasn't just the tunes that got him in trouble.  They had all the delete kits, aftermarket exhaust etc.. that he offered for sale also itemized.

ATP (Idaho Rob) was fined almost $95k, and promised to never sell tuners, delete kits, or exhaust from now on. The court docs say that they only fined him that amount because that's all he could afford. (which I find interesting)
Just a matter of time before we all have to go to Canada for tunes, and that's if the gooberment doesn't start to force mandatory emissions testing country wide here shortly. :(

OK, $96K it is...
I was just repeating hearsay which as I just demonstrated, can be pretty hazardous!

Well, with hearing our current admin is actually cutting back on some things we maybe safe for as long as these trucks last.

Don, need to get the contact info form you for them. Not happy with what I have and maybe they can do a VW so it shows OK when checked, but runs the way I want otherwise.

You?re going to like the new lights there chief.

Look like what I and a few others have.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Already found the sight, but thanks. Little rich for my blood at the moment with my build, but I'll get there.

Your still running DSP5 or just a straight tune?

I use the DSP5 with multiple tunes, but am always running around in tune 3, "Light towing"
