    Looks like the dirt was holding it together before the tape.

    It don’t matter, the regs says secured, it doesn’t say how.


    The only thing, as pointed out is the light unit on the right side, that could be - slim - a violation because it is out of alignment.

    The last company I worked for about 4 years ago, I hit a deer and knocked off the front right section of the bumper on the Cascadia I was driving at the time. Used duct tape and zip ties to mount it back up right there on the side of the freeway. I believe it was better than new, and it's probably still rolling like that today. Sometimes you have to improvise.

    Older couple out of Houston in the mid to late 70’s ran the Alcan for the pipeliner’s food supply and wanted leg room. They put a flat floor in the cab.

    That’s one of the more bizarre creations I’ve ever seen.
