  1. Hopefully next week i can finish the front brakes and have the chassis standing on its own wheels again
  2. Just finished the overhaul of the rear brakes.
  3. Still slowly plodding on. starting to put things back together.
  4. I cant remember where i read it but I believe this brown was referred to as milky chocolate. I used the find that Richard Farrant made on the inside of a vehicle panel of the colour s.c.c no2 brown. i purchased a supply of the colour Richard had made by RR services.
  5. Two days ago i started to put the first coat of service brown on.
  6. I have been using all the information that Mike Starmer has done on british army colours & disruptive camouflage of 1936-1945 to decided. According to my key card my vehicle is from contract V4914 and it chassis is 12449. this suggests that my vehicle was built in 1942 I know in may 1942 that there was a shortage of material to produce green paint so i have decided to psint the vehicle S.c.c no 2 brown i have already spray the chassis and axle with an under coat.
  7. But i have also found what looks like deep bronze green no 24.
  8. This has taken alot of hours so far and more to go. I think next time i will have someone else shot blast it all down in one go. i have been debating with myself what colour to repaint the vehicle. I have found what looks like s.c.c no 15 olive drab on the chassis.
  9. When i started I thought I would have all the time in the world to restore my Bedford. How wrong i was. i decided to clean all the parts, shot blast and wire brush everything down myself.
  10. Its took a bit longer than i was hoping. I decided to strip the whole chassis down. Taking the leaf springs off took some doing. Only one pin left now to remove from the last shackle and its the done.
  11. Are you asking about the tyre pump valve?
  12. Going to send the chassis away for sand blasting in a few weeks time once the last parts are removed. Then will make a start on the rust cab
  13. Want to start collecting the small bits and pieces I think are missing like window winder handles, wipers, etc. Also want to start sending some of the small parts away for refurbishment like the wiper motors, and dials in the dash board also the light switch's. Does anyone know who can refurbish this? or is it possible to do thee parts your self?
