  1. Wally, you sir are a diamond amongst men, thank you very much
  2. We think it may of been 24v but it's certainly not anymore, I'm a bit short on clues at the moment as I've only been sent pictures...he does have the army reg number but it doesn't come up with anything at the rlc archive.. cheers for the info 👍
  3. Hi chaps, A good friend of mine is in the process of restoring his swb Landover and was hoping to get a little bit more information on the markings/history of the old girl...it also appears to have an added oil cooler in the front that we're unsure of the need/purpose?? Any help gratefully received Many thanks martin
  4. Hi, unfortunately due to many reasons this project has been at a bit of a standstill for a while.. I am keen to get back on it but time and money are hard to get hold of at the moment!! As soon as there's any progress I shall keep you informed on how it goes
  5. Hi wally, the chassis is indeed 4826, You really are a credit to the forum Many thanks and kind regards martin
  6. Hi, I had a look at a very sad matador today with a view to restore it, just wandered if anyone could tell me what rear body should be on it as its a timber crane now army reg is 03yz84 ...will get some pictures next time I'm near it, we all like pictures!
  7. Hi, I need a castle nut for the drag link on my k9....anybody know what thread and size I'm looking for, not near the old girl to measure but would like to got one on its way so I can go for a little drive Thanksyou for any help Martin
  8. I found this writing on the steering wheel centrecap today...any ideas what it may mean??? Cheers martin u
  9. Hi, yes..I did reply, but it seems to of dissapeared into the far flung realms of the internet!!
  10. Many thanks folks, I think my best actions would be to speak with the current mvt inspector and ask their views on what constitutes a complete vehicle then follow his/hers recommendations... At the end of the day its all up the them! From what I can see I should have no problem with the flatbed, or incomplete vehicle but its up to the inspector as to what constitutes a vehicle worthy of verification. If I have to do more work to it then so be it!! Thank you all for your insights and contributions.. Martin
  11. Thanks folks. That clears it up in my book.. next question??how reasonably complete is reasonably complete????!!! It currently starts,drives and stops....but there's some welding left to do and no wiring\indicators...it would be nice to get the ball rolling dvlawise as I'm sure I'll be finished before they even look at my paperwork!!!

  13. Hi, The restoration of my beloved k9 is nearing the end...but I am just a bit worried as it has a non original flatbed fitted rather than a radio body, with this be likely to cause issues when I have the mvt come and inspect the old girl to get an age certificate so I can apply for a v5?? Other than the bed its all original... Thanks Martin P.s. I'm trying to get a radio body but the owners much prefer there generator to live in it... People eh!!
  14. Hi Looks Good...but the best thing you will ever do for your welding is clean all the paint and rust from around where your welding!! in the photo is doesn't look like you have! keep up the good work. kind regards Martin
  15. Hi, I came across this nice little trailer today and just wandered what it is? ..Its very complete and in fairly good condition. It runs on 9.00 20 tyres which make it a fair size and height.. I am yet to make an offer but not really sure how much it is worth? The plan is to tow it behind a k9. If I manage to get it then I may have a widetrack sankey going for reasonable monies... regards martin
