There is a break with Volvo 1 so I was sick of the rats running over Volvo 2 cabin it was time to pull it out and clean it up ready to drop Top cabin on it. A heap of effort from the 3 of us dragged it over the gravel driveway then gave it a huge bath. The rat jumping out inches from my face did not impress me.

Volvo 2 day decide to get rid of the surface rust on the roof of Volvo 2 it's getting bad with the huge amounts of rain we are having.5 hours of wire brushing and 600grit sandpaper I have it cleaned up and painted. It looks surprisingly good only a few spots need some body filler applied.

It's a great view as I head home knowing forward progress is being made. Once Volvo 1 is complete Volvo 3 will join Volvo 2 in the same bay.

I work at the Volvo Trucks class 8 plant in North America (day cabs and sleeper cabs, dump trucks, etc). It is very cool to see this non US model, and I am jealous. Please do not stop updating us on your progress!
