|The first mod of my holidays in France. It's a car adapter I made at home. During the 1000 km trip it will provide my notebook with 20 volts and 2.4 amperes.|
|the adapter in its case|
|We've hardly crossed the border and there's already ghetto stuff! On the left side of the road there's a burned-out Peugeot lying upside down! In France there are only three car brands anyway: CitroÃ«n, Renault and Peugeot! I'll get to that later. Unfortunately the camera wasn't ready at that moment!|
Now let's have a look at the cars which are driven (to death) in France:
This one is a nicely styled Volkswagen bus (they exist here, too).
|a Peugeot 204|
|Let's look at Citroën, this one is a 2CV ("Duck")|
|an AX with five doors (they have three normally)|
|Take a closer look at the doors of this BX.|
|Oh my god! What is that? A bunker on wheels?|
Just one thing is for sure: It's a CitroÃ«n.
|A very rare object nowadays: Renault Estafet|
|And a... rO D ??? I guess it was FORD originally.|
|If you look closely you'll notice that the rear window of this Peugeot 405 has been replaced by plastic foil.|
|In France you have to buy the license plate yourself, but why buy one if you can make one ghetto-style...|
|OK, you cannot only lower your car but also make it higher.|
|The local police has nice cars, too :-)|
|Renault rulez! This is a picture of the "new" van model.|
|an other one|
|Check out the Renault 12|
|A bus with a little dent and some rust which would lead to door-loss if you opened the door completely.|
|I photographed these beautiful power supply boxes at the market.
Have a look at the duct tape mod.|
|Here you see a rusty car next to the box.|
|These pictures are from the best restaurant in Montalivet, in terms of food and mods.|
Here: That's a lot of mods!
|Fixed, exposed outlets, with cord cables!!!!|
|Uber ghetto: These boxes, (probably) providing high voltage, have no cover!|
|The overground wiring is the greatest, unfortunately this is the only picture because this digital camera is not that small and light.|
|Argh, those French standards!|
|As you can see I'm not the only one who can do such ghetto mods (except Baader)|
|This switch, together with the above two mods, belongs to a bedtable lamp which got a cable ripped out after the first drop. That's why I had to disassemble the switch.|
|This is the light switch in my hotel room. The French people care about security, that's why there is a safety fuse in every switch and outlet. Unfortunately the flash of the digital camera is too bright for macro.|
|I had to plug in that lamp somewhere, and because I had several devices with Swiss plugs with me I had to mod an Euro 2 Swiss cable.|
|When I was chilling out and reading the "Blick" I noticed that headline immediately!|
That's it from the holidays!
