  1. The second tank pictures are from my flea, the engine no. and the chassis no. are 11115 it would be interesting to know the numbers on the bike in the first post, also my tank hasn't got the recess for the RE enamelled badge, John
  2. also Ian the muzzle clip part that bolts around the handlebar stem is brass, nothing a man of your calibre cant fabricate. John.
  3. Ian , pictures of my rigid infantry bike, I always thought that it was a BSA. the rifle but clip and the muzzle clip are dated 1941 and 1942, I had pictures somewhere but cant find them , John.
  4. A bit of a change from all this panel bashing. Here are some of the invoices for the Jeep. John
  5. The body tub taking shape, I had to have the rear cross member and the front bumper pressed out new, John.
  6. Looking at the mechanical parts invoices from TS Autos that are all dated 2000 I would think I started on the metal work in 1999, John.
  7. The only solid parts of the body tub were the bulkhead and the outer rear wheel arches therefor I had to fabricate the front and rear floor pans and the riser from front floor to rear floor and the inner rear wheel arches, John.

  9. Much of the floor pan and top hat supports were rotten and the following pictures are a bit out of sequence but you will see the amount of cutting and forming by hand the new parts had to be done, John.
  10. see my blog of restoration of Ford GPW Jeep in restorations. Pictures of the REME markings found on the jeep. The markings are from the 1950, John.
  11. I have seen two jeeps that are known to been in service with the British army with the same hole cut into the dashboard, most guesses are that it is for a speaker, have you any other suggestions, John.
  12. Thanks Wally, as allways good to hear from an expert, John.
  13. yes markings will be re applied. The jeep is painted in bronze green and the engine bay in duck egg blue. These are the colours found on the jeep during restoration. John.
  14. On the rear bumpers and on the front of the windscreen I found the stars and bars of Southern Command and on the other side the formation sign for REME with a white bar on top 13 COMMD WKSP which I think was Aldershot
  15. State of engine bay, chassis was solid with no welding needed, just sand blast
