  15. I doubt that the dashboard lamp is unique to the Matador, so have you tried asking about it on other vehicle forums? Also, might this link help: http://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/aecmatador-0853-spare-parts-list-1323-p.asp Probably a long shot but perhaps Lucas have archive material that could help you.

  22. Very pleased to see Vulcan XA903 has one more dial. I suppose that you have this site:- http://www.v-bombers.org/Vulcan_XH560.htm and already know that The Cockpit Collection seems to have vanished.
  23. Plenty of companies to choose from if you Google:- Vehicle cotton braided cable sleeve
  24. A few years ago I saw Vulcan XA903 at Wellesbourne and at the time the panel for the Olympus 593 engine dials was more empty holes than dials, so I'm sure that the owner would be pleased to hear from you.
  25. If there is sufficient metal in the wheel rim have you thought of machining the rim down to a clean surface then fitting a steel tyre as is done to railway wheels to produce the correct diameter for the rubber tyre? This link describes the method:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Train_wheel#Tire_installation I would question if leaving the rust to hold the tyres in place is really a solution to the problem, because as the vehicle is used won't the rust break up and eventually work it's way out, leading to loose tyres?
