Hi Everyone, As you can probably guess from the name i'm a fencing contractor but actually based in Essex not Hull! We carry out a mostly agricultural fencing and i have been looking at new ways of moving plant (digger, tracked post driver etc) and materials to jobs but normal lorries arent any good to us due to issues with getting stuck, the legislation and additional licences i would need to take. I recently noticed on ebay that there seems to have been an infulx of ex-MOD 4x4 renault and daf truck that are a much cheaper option than the obvious unimog. I contacted the DVLA with regard to registering one of these as an agricultural vehicle and they made it all sound very easy, long and short send them pictures with registration application and details of what its being used for (they said our work was ok) and they would register it as AG - i though it all sounded a bit too easy!! has anyone else had experience with this at all?? Thanks in advance, Laurence
In the MV world, the "Holy Grail" is probably to find an original Jeep in its shipping crate. Of course, other than those at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the holds of sunken ships, it's very unlikely anyone will ever find one. The whole "Jeep in a crate for $50" idea came from a post war scam, trying to con people out of their money. However, there are a number of photos around the net showing Jeeps in crates, although how they were packed and how disassembled they were seems to vary from picture to picture. This model was built for a friend, with the hood number matching his Jeep. The Jeep is from the 1/35 scale Italeri kit with a scratch built crate from ramin strip wood and 1/32 birch plywood. The metal tie down straps are black painted paper, with painted wire over paper holding the wheels into the tub. It is presented in an A4 box frame.
Hello everyone. I'm Steampunk. Lifelong bike nut, progressed onto Landrovers and now looking for a pre 1960 4X4 ex-army truck to see the world from. Joined to discover a wealth of information about the various models available before taking the plunge and buying. Any advice, particulary regarding Bedford RL's and Green goddess's and diesel engine options would be very welcome. In return I can offer twenty years experience in the motorcycle trade, not especially military but most brands. Not great with computers but I've made it this far!! Stay cool.
Hi all. I've recently joined the forum as I am turning a Sankey trailer into an expedition trailer and need some pointers on parts which I've made a post on. I've also got a disco 1 Es premium '98 which is slowly going through the offroad transformation. I'm a member of the Mid Sussex Landrover club, Discovery Owners Club and Sussex4x4response group, who offer help in times of adverse weather. We are always recruiting, have recently attained charity status and we are part of the National response network so there's a group near you if you fancy being involved. We've got the vehicles that will get anywhere when the weather gets bad. Check them out. Thx. Neil.
