    It's already written into UK law that we can sell old spec deacts outside the EU, that's why all the big dealers are still listing old spec (you can also hire and lease them into your collection). Once we leave the EU it's a green light again UNLESS they re-write that part of the policing and crime act. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2017/3/section/128/enacted .

    The gun barrel holding up the barn roof was pretty cool.

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    We are squeezed up on outer Monktons, Americas was closed (at capacity) by Tuesday morning and there was camping overflow into the support car park area. Only 6 public portaloos in the whole of our field and 5 were overflowing with sh1t by Wednesday night so we set up a driving rota to take the kids to the main loos in the brick building which still worked. It's hot, it's dusty, the drinking water is labelled not fit for drinking unless boiled but the show must go on and the atmosphere is brilliant.
  6. US title worked for me when I registered my '44 Ford a couple of years ago. I had lined up an MVT verification but cancelled them when the V5 arrived.

    30 cal values

    No need to relax any gun laws, it's already written into the legislation that these can be sold "as is" i.e. old spec to any non EU country. Why do you think all the dealers are hanging onto old spec stuff ?

    30 cal values

    £100 to have it welded solid, just wait till we leave the EU next spring and you can sell it as is.

    What makes a good MV show?

    The Capel show is almost exactly as you described which makes it so fantastic to visit.

    Ferret purchasing advice

    Hi guys, went to look at a Mk2/3 today, just wondering how much it will cost to get back on the road. Yes I know how much is a piece of string, but someone on here has probably had worse and knows where the money will need to be ploughed into. It was driven on a flat tyre until the wheel station went bang then left outside for years. bins rusted solid, no brakes, tyres badly cracked, everything corroded. Interior and engine bay flooded with water/mud Plus points, does start and run roughly, will move under it's on steam, turret turns, lights work.

    Ferret purchasing advice

    Exactly what I thought at the time, I offered 7.5K cash which I thought was fair but he was not even dropping a fiver off the price.

    Ferret purchasing advice

    Chap wants £10K but I don't have the space to pull the pack out on my drive. I have left it for the moment while I work out prices for parts and see if it's possible on my budget, I can see past the cosmetic work.

    WW2 Willys Jeep

    Tricky one, especially as the guys rebuilding them (UJS) have a waiting list at £26500 I guess this means private sales prices are bound to fill the gap. The last few basket cases on ebay were 5-7K and I don't see that many nice ones available.
  14. Thanks Nick, some good pics, was a great day out.

    Brooklands Museum Military Vehicle Day 19th November

    It was a brilliant day, loads of vehicles and the sun was shining. There are a few photos on their FB and Twitter sites. Someone lost a MK6 helmet near Tesco's, unfortunately by the time I recovered it several vehicles had damaged it, secure your kit better next time !!

    Jeep cylinder head leak

    Hi, I have a couple of cracks on the top of the cylinder head and the plug holes fill with water if left standing for a few weeks. Is anyone making new heads ? or where is the best source for a usable replacement, not too fussed for genuine ww2 parts but I'm sure a replacement would be easier than fixing this one.

    (Ferret) fuel tank woes

    POR15 worked very well on my jeep fuel tank, not cheap but way cheaper than a new tank.
