    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

    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?

    Sorry for the delay. Like most things I have to work to pay the bill so not done to much. I have took the cab body and engine out. Did this the slow way so I could label things up and take photos as I went.

    Thanks you for that information Richard, where did you find out that information. As i want to try and find out as much information about the life of this vehicle. I started the restoration today by taking all the rubbish out the back. which leads me onto my next question. I found a wooden box in the back, does anyone know if this box was for the bren gunner at the front of the body to stand on, and if so is this one the original box or what some one else has made year after its army life?
