  1. Looks like War and Peace is now officially cancelled for this year, with the Hop Farm pulling the plug being given as the reason
  2. John, Sent you a PM but not heard back, are you still after 24v parts
  3. 1953 1/2 ton trailer, needing work but mostly complete. Has both split rims and a third spare. Some spares included. I need the space, really hoping someone here will take it on. £220 ONO. Located Hampshire, may be able to deliver. Send me a PM if interested.
  4. That looks very much like a US marked Ariel W/NG - I Knew the US forces in the UK had BSA M20s, I had no idea they had Ariels also
  5. Hi Rootes, thanks for that. Yes, I have a feeling there is indeed the right engine somewhere, fingers crossed there's a gearbox next to it 😀
  6. So, it took me a while, but here is a photo of that sidelight bracket
  7. Andy, Don't know if you're aware, HGVs are three months, not six
  8. I thought now might be a nice time to share some of the parts I have acquired since 2015. I was hoping to find a photo of it, so far unsuccessfully, but a very nice find at Beaulieu Autojumble (I think it was 2018) was what looks like an original bulkhead sidelight bracket. Just one, not a pair, but I was over the moon. £15 if memory serves - result!
  9. Evening, I have a gap in my Frituur Zorro book collection, I missed volume 3, and as a result my OCD is going mad 😃 Anyone have a copy they would sell?

    Hi Bosun! Totally agree with that. I'm stuck in a hotel currently, its forums like this that help some degree of sanity
  11. Hiya Gordon, nice to hear from you. Thankfully, the minibar isn't stocked in my room, otherwise that could get expensive!
  12. She's coming along! Great work as always, gents
  13. Well firstly, I hope you're all staying safe, and aren't climbing the walls what with social distancing, etc. I find myself stuck in a hotel for work, not sure when I am going to leave, and thought it might be a good moment to update this thread (five years since my last post!). The update is - there's no major news! The hunt for an engine and gearbox continues, no leads so far, but I did manage to track down a gentleman who owned an engine, unfortunately 30 years ago! I desperately hope that engine still exists, and is laying forgotten at the back of a workshop somewhere. I suspect when the time comes I will have to put a non-standard engine in. My chassis should at least come out of storage this year and into its new home in the garage, and I think I have sufficient parts to at least make a good start on it sometime soon. Stay safe in these worrying times, and don't forget that self isolation doesn't have to be in the house, it could be in the workshop! 😀

    I've heard that Kit kat multi-packs may use foil still, worth a try.
