370 in Europe

Another 370 thread, but this one is in Europe, 2nd one I believe .
I would like to thank all the 370 enthousiasts who helped me and the previous owner, Charles , to get this one to The Netherlands.
I will try to post pictures about this particular 370 .
Itís at this moment at a specialist who is getting it ready for the Dutch roadworthiness certification.

Front bags replaced

Wel the front bags are replaced, they where a bit on the dry/ leaky side.
Did have an issue to get these as the Firestone ones are NLA
Got a good replacement fitting continental ones.
And also found out how to repair the old ones..

Wheels and nuts.

I will need wheel a couple of wheel nuts, thanks to Kenneth, I know which ones I will need as he was so kind to measure his.
But ÖÖ. No chance of getting them here.
Iíve found a resembling part which fit to a Freightliner.
That takes care of the Nuts, however I do want to get the Budd lugs as well and they seem to come in three different lengths .. which would I need?
