  1. Universal Carrier Canvas Cover

    Can I recommend Frank Brown at Pegasus Drive for the canvas. Great guy to work with for webbing and canvas gear
  2. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    Also check for air leaks, sucking in air will also cause the engine to cut out.

  8. Hi Chris no intel from others yet so no ideas whatโ€™s happening. Would be good there again, great spot. No 6 pounder tho this year Iโ€™m afraid. Will put feelers out and let you know. You going to mow your own grass or want me to use the jeep again?? ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘
  9. Just a heads up on this event. ive been going for a few years now and it is a great show. Fascinating location and well run. Loads to do and see, well organised, good bunch of guys n gals. As Commander says, no real need to book, unless you do have any special requests or needs, just turn up and set up. I go Friday afternoon, set up tent and displays then get to the traders for bargains.
  10. Last picture is an Orme Evans lightweight airborne trailer, very nice. Would love to have found that here, most are SS Cars (went on to be Jaguar) im restoring one myself I found dumped at a local tip with snapped draw bar. Everything of the lower 9โ€ has had to be fully remanufactured!! still looking for a lot of parts, especially the front hitch.
  11. WW2 Gunnery turret trainer

    Yep, thatโ€™s the place, lot of the structures still there, only wire fence surrounds it. Some is acceptable from the public beach, some rails poking out the sand and few concrete building bases and wiring conduits. Blast wall onto the beach is still there and few of the low concrete walls inside the Field, guessing the track still there too. no remains of the training equipment, but thereโ€™s a few farms about, they love to hoard stuff, or have memories of its use.
  12. WW2 Gunnery turret trainer

    Guessing your a Lanc fanatic mate? theres an old RAF gunnery range at HELLS MOUTH near Abersoch in North Wales. Some of the old structure and narrow gauge track still there, inc the blast walls. Good access and just sheep there now.
  13. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    To me the wall thickness is an issue on this as stated. I have formed 4โ€ copper tube on steam boat engines with no problems using the fine sand method, but that was thicker wall. We have hydraulic pipe benders in the workshop but even doing thin wall steel tube is an issue for us. Pity an internal support spring canโ€™t be sourced, what about a spring suppliers, we have an old time spring manufacturer local who make and spring clip or coils, a lot kept in stock.
  14. Just came across this picture from 2013 any ideas where this trailer was and if possibly for sale please?
  15. MK3 Covenanter restoration

    Have you seen how many holes are in that hull, like a sieve I bet!! Lol
