  1. been a lot of work... and still a lot more todo!, and ive not gone anywhere near the level you have! ive just fixed the broken stuff serviced and then gone over critical systems.. finding parts has been a challenge I was missing a lot of it!! hopefully should have most of it sorted soon.
  2. Found a few more of the missing bits!
  3. can anyone help with the above? B40 powered, I have the documents for that, just the auto diesels bit, mid 50's REME unit. Thanks For any help. Sam.
  4. @Richard Farrant is the reason she is not in aden colours 😜 for the best I recon! #GreenMachine
  5. hoping you would spot it Richard 🙂 , im not finished on the back yet. but should look as above plus I add feet marks on the boom not shore yet.. Thankyou for your help with it!
  6. 38ENGR I have only one photo in service. 48BM80 on left.
  7. few pics of "getting there" lol sill lots of wiring and a leaky bevel box to sort! as well as swapping out some old PAS hoses. but she works 🙂 winch is lovely and now pay's on properly, and the crane is nice and smooth, its got a later hydraulic pump fitted that is leaking a bit, but im not overly concerned about it, seems to function well enough.
  8. Shes back to DBG, still lots todo, still after the above bits... "cab sun shade, the suspended tow pickup, the fire extinguisher holders and one of the hub cap a-frame pickups" thanks all.
  9. Hoping u chaps maybe able to point me in the right direction! I’m looking for some of the fittings for a recovery, namely the cab sun shade, the suspended tow pickup, the fire extinguisher holders and one of the hub cap a-frame pickups. None of its critical but if anyone knows of a beyond saving truck that the custodian may be open to selling bits I would be very keen! I’ve found lots of the stuff I need and the community has been great!
  10. Had some fun so far freeing the clutch and a broken drive shaft.. now sorted
  11. DBG high gloss, though a fair way off, well in to rust repair now, then quite a lot of wireing putting all the lights back, quite interesting the truck was wired to use traficators and seems to have been converted to use indicators when in MOD use, I have a photo posted on here showing where the lights were added... I have that work todo again lol
  12. Clutch is now free, air systems work properly, ive started on rust repair I shall update in the new year, really enjoying it was going to stop work months ago but the weather has been so mild the shed has been warm enough lol. I shall reignight the debate on the rear prop before long... 😜
  13. im trying to work out what the dark green paint is on my FV1119 it appears after you clean oil off components I think its this green :- , is this DBG? if so is it "satin finish"?? thanks for any help. Sam.
  14. Thats the sort of thing! Mr Crouch has 2x 1500x20's but there a more modern pattern, I may have sorted one to make up my beam, thats a good spot!
