  1. 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!
  2. Had some fun so far freeing the clutch and a broken drive shaft.. now sorted
  3. 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
  4. 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... 😜
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. Im not surprised the level you going to! just superb! Im bringing a FV1119 back to life, its not going to be anywhere near the level you have gone to, but hoping to have it reliable abit likely with a few leaks 😜
  8. Im wondering what the Radio would be on this FV1119? guessing Larkspur but witch set? Thanks Sam.
  9. in that case is it worth replacing them? its unlikely to be subjected to loads it would have been in the past, I was worried as it will get lots of use on wet ground and this will likely result in wheel slip especially with the tires it the worn state they are..
  10. ive got one walking beam that has very worn tires, there not damaged but the tread is nearly flat in the centre, the shoulders still have tread left... I found that 1 drive shaft in the beam had failed and I suspect the lack of tread and resulting wheel slip may well have been a contributing factor and im keen to avoid a repeat..
  11. afternoon chaps, anyone know where to start looking for the above? Cheers Sam.
