    Sand Blasting Paint

    While out metal detecting last year I found this lump hammer, the only reason I held on to it was that I could just make out the ''Crows Foot'' arrow, it looked like a chunk of rust. A month soaking in 1 part molasses to 9 part water mix ,this is the result. A lot more info became apparent also the hardened tips showed up. It will not shift paint but does get rid of rust. I am thinking about using it on the GMC fuel tank. Thanks QB

    Suffolk trip help needed please

    Hi gas 44, you might like to check out www.95thbg-horham.com , I am a committee member at this museum. Next year we will be holding a special anniversary over the weekend of 16th and 17th June 2018, to celebrate the arrival of the 95th Bomb Group to Horham in 1943. Hoping for some guests from the States, possible road run to places of interest, 40s dance on Saturday etc, the date is firm but events are to be finalized. The following weekend will be the popular Americana Day with a dance on the Saturday night and Cars etc on Sunday. Open days start on last Sunday of the month from April to October, but always happy to open up out side these times. All so there is a nice museum at Hardwick, various crash Memorials dotted about the area. Happy to help where I can. Quentin.

    Wheel I.D. Please.

    Thank you 1068, I did have a look through the Bart Vanderveen "bible" and there are some similar wheels on vehicles in the French section. A positive I.D. would be needed as they will be for sale when I start restoration. QB

    Wheel I.D. Please.

    Thank you for your replies, I will have a look for any markings, I did wonder if they were off a type of French vehicle, but I have found nothing similar. Q.

    Wheel I.D. Please.

    Currently on my "Ben Hur " trailer and obviously not GMC type wheels, can anyone I.D. these for me please. The trailer has spent time in the French Army at some time. Many Thanks, Quentin.

    An odd pair!

    While looking through some old photos, I came across these two pictures. The "soft cab" Chev was at Beltring in 1996 while the "hard" cab Bomb truck was in Bethune during the 1994 tour. Interesting conversions. QB.

    U.S. Trailer Blackout Switch.

    Thanks Dodgey 63, got a nice NOS switch from Universal Jeep today. Yes there is a difference from the jeep trailer. Must just say how quick and helpful Cliff was with the switch and a Blackout tail light I bought at Stoneleigh. QB
