    engine change

    My QL has a Bedford 330 fitted. Done well before I bought it.

    1941 Chevrolet 8CWT.

    Where has this one disappeared off to?

    Bedford QLT rear seat material and colour

    Looking a bit sorry for herself but we'll get her sorted.

    Bedford QLT rear seat material and colour

    Many many thanks for all this info. I have an old roll of black vinyl/leathercloth which I'm hoping may be suitable. The seats are covered by green canvas at the moment but this is a replacement as it has not put on properly. I have looked for period pictures of the rear of a QLT but the pic above is the only one i could see the seating properly. And going back to the mention of the side panel pressings, what's the differences between the two types?

    abebooks.co.uk Search for military vehicle markings and both are still available for about £25 including postage.

    You know your bits are something to behold! Grubby but ever so handy!!! And I have indeed moved bases, I am now only resident in two counties instead of four!

    Oh right ok Mike. So something along the lines of a black vinyl may do the trick or not?

    Well this and filling out tribunal paperwork ready for the case against the museum :-) Yes i'm sure you will see her and I haven't forgotten about your bits ;-)
  10. Good afternoon all, Would anyone know or hazard a guess as to what the seats would have been covered with and the colour of the material would have been in this picture of a Bedford QLT? I have one recovered in canvas and have seen others with the same, but it doesn't look like canvas in the pic.

    whereabouts are you based? I have a QLT which is undergoing (slowly) major maintenance to get her back on the road then a resto in the future.

    So do I make the assumption that the footage in 'millions like us' would be stock footage? It was released end of '43.

    Much appreciated! Just ordered both books including postage for under £20 so will have a little reading to do.

    Re-skinning hurricanes in North Africa during the war

    Afternoon Steve. Bryan is the chap at the RAF museum London. You probably won't but don't donate them, by all means let them have copies if you want but I wouldn't donate ANYTHING to a museum nowadays.

    Pass plate and holder

    Would anyone have details on the plate / holder (the one fitted with 'PASS' on this vehicle) and when it was in use? I've seen various cmp's fitted with them but i also noticed it on the Bedford QLT's in the film 'millions like us'. Was it short lived? Was it used on British vehicles or just a few cases? Any info would be appreciated.
