    What is the item lashed to the antennae tube with the red end to it?
    Thanks for the info, I am now informed.
    Hi Robin, Its a crowbar.

    I know its non-standard. I saw one on another privately-owned Ferret and, because I don't have sand tracks, decided to lash this securely to the antenna tube. I covered the lashings with a short length of webbing strap. I got the crowbar cleaned and black enamel-coated, then painted the ends red. I think it looks the part with the front glacis furniture, but it also has two other functions. First, it provides a strengthened step-up when getting on and off the vehicle from the front, so the tube is not bent or damaged. I've seen a Ferret suffer side-swipe damage when a car hit it as it was exititng a T-junction, so a very much secondary purpose is to help minimise impact damage.

    I'm with Robin - the Classic Cars LED looks the best of the 3. I can see the Mitant being retrofitted with them at some point. Probably not the indicators though as I doubt there will be an LED replacement for the indicator switch/relay.

    You can load an LED with resistors to operate an old mechanical flasher unit, or do what I did and buy a replacement for about £8.

    Hi Tony, do you have details of the replacement unit, please?

    Just feed LED indiactor into Amazon. There are a number available. I've found it a very useful site for bits. I got a three pin and added a cheap buzzer unit from Maplins. Much more use in an MV than a little flashing light.

    You've got an MV where you can hear a buzzer when driving?
