  1. Hi Lynn,not sold as yet,still have both matadors,i have djs 965d still in my workshop, cab wood,and floor are done,rear springs sorted along with various bits,was side tracked by a mk1 militant (got it for the crane)which you can see on my facebook:s.b.engineering services ltd. on its maiden run to my local fair.still slowly progressing but thought the other one might go to someone to restore,which is undercover and untouched since i got her.work keeps getting in the way of fun tho!.cheers scott.

  7. Hi Nick,just fitting second roof skin to the Matador so that can be painted,Milly is turned round now so I can sort the other leg(rams from Ramco)and paint the cab ,weather permitting, so may be a while!.Look forward to seeing progress on yours too.Scott.
  8. Hi Nick saw this box on ebay ,if correct might save you a few quid. milly gearbox ebay no:272417423558.scott
  9. Thanks for posting the pics Ian, your Tilly is looking great, they remind me I have got a few things done!The militant project has slowed my progress on the Matador,but it lives outside and the crane is a bonus for all the heavy parts plus couldnt resist another Aec.Hope to get more painted before winter and start sorting electrics etc.Scott.
  10. Hi Neil,watching your restoration with great interest you are doing a great job,I have a similar problem with my Mk 1 militant fitted with an atlas crane,just removed the roof panel which as one piece round the cupola,mine doesnt have the mg ring mounts tho, but had gone at all the edges and i intend to rivet back a slightly oversize panel and weld back the retaining ring round the cupola.I will have to do a windscreen too as drivers side is broken,gotta find out where all the electrics go to as not sure,and nothing works!best with your restoration.scott
