We especialy need pictures about the inner view like the dashboard, seats and the engine compartment. Any information about getting spare parts is welcome. Phase 2 will be the back cabin. The chassis and suspension are in surprisingly good condition. Phase 3 will be the radio equipment. I guess this will be the hardest part ...

  9. Can anyone help me finding a larger British WWII tent? (f.e. A British Army 160 lb tent) Does anyone also know a way to repair canvas? Is there something like a merchant who does this? I did already fix it by sticking a piece of canvas several times but this thing is becomming a rags sieve. Is it a good idea to steam it to clean it? And finaly, is there a way (product, treatment) to make the canvas stronger again? Thanks a lot guys ...
