Hello folks,

 

there have been a few dramas recently, but I'm bac to work on the K2. Would anyone know of details for the rear floor, I need to know the width of the floorboards. I have the inspection hatch in reasonable condition and some lengths of hardwood, but I need to know what dimensions to machine it?

 

I'm also in need of a nsf wing and a radiiator if anyone can help?

Here is the text that I'd wanted to include but having a few tec issues!

 

The previous pictures show the dashboard, windscreen panel and wooden cab bulkhead all now atached and shown on the chassis a few posts ago. I will try and upload more but this is playing serious games with me!

 

Still need leads on a radiator and an osf wing in any condition?

A few pictures of the dashboard, the lower picture shows the original damaged item with the donor dash at the bottom. Simply a case of cutting aligning, making sure the mounting holes still aligned and welding the two together. A qhick skim of filler and back to new again.....

I know this is old but I really hope you continued, at what ever pace.

 

I too remembered seeing those K2's at Scambleby in Lincolnshire and in fact I had one removed to the former RAF station at Hemswell but I dont know what happened to it after I left there ????

 

Anyhow, anybody got any news of this particular resto ??
