  1. there are images of vehicles still in the factory with the bridge plates attached one such is of AUSTIN K2 AMBULANCES on the finishing line at the factory it is quite true that the actual bridge classification number would be painted on as well as arm of service and div signs on receipt by the army
  2. A few years ago l had to do a H/S REPORT on tyres and how they deteriorated with age which had become a problem with museum vehicles when a number of tyres blew out without warning been a potential risk to visitors. After contacting a number of tyre manufacturers they confirmed that a tyre would start to deteriorate after approximately after six years and there was no way of stopping this as most of the deterioration took place out of sight they gave examples such as a spare wheel that had never been fitted and had stayed in the boot for a number of years painting with tyre black only covered up the problem and did not solve it This what l found out the vehicles l own have had all the tyres replaced if they show the signs of cracking
