  7. Andy Tyres are Petlas 9.00 x 16 - from ToTec Tyres They are a b***ger to fit, yes they do need to be shaved. I am preparing a document on how to do it, PM me you e-mail address and I will send you acopy of the document (when I have finished it).
  8. Hi Wally - you are always welcome to but in The side rails I have are The "U" section on mine is about 1.125" wide and deep and would accommodate a 0.75" board Also one has at support bracket on it. Wally - any use to you (Free of Charge of course) "goanna" will PM you some more photos, also happy to take more measurements if you need
  9. Started on tyre fitting .... one done, four to go. Need to get them done and fitted so I can move the truck into a position to do the welding on the rear. Dividing rim nuts will be painted red
  10. Mine is a later model with "flat sided" tank, so doesn't have these boards. I was given part of a side rail from an earlier model, I will measure this up let you know the dimensions

    Thanks Wally, I thought that was the case, just wanted to make sure Andy - Inner tubes from Duncan Smith (ToTec Tyres), they are heavy duty ones Cheers Richard
  12. Inner Tube advice

    Hi Just got some inner tubes for British 16" rims (tyres will be 900x16) The valve is a long reach type, at the base of this is a nut and a washer. How are they used, or are they discarded ? Cheers Richard

  14. Highly tempting... It would be nice to know exactly what the colours were
  15. Bit of trial fitting of cab woodwork templates (will be making them in Ash in due course) Also link to film with some early MWC's in it (thanks to John Corden) , one with a very interesting camoflage https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060033073
