WW2 Air Ministry Airborne Compressor Trailer

The 4 corner legs were bent, corroded & broken so lots of heat & hammering & eventually the old legs came out,  next is drilling out the broken screw threads.

Found the correct parking brake lever in my scrap pile, just needs straightening.

A few photos of progress so far,   most the parts are now fitted to the repaired chassis frame including to correct 1942 Petter PU8 engine which is partly stripped down so that the camshaft can be modified in order to fit the clutch as I was unable to find an original camshaft.

The roof is off the postwar trailer which is now no more as I've 'broken it' for parts,   the complete roof assembly has been used as it almost identical to the original except there's no hatch in the top so that will have to be fabricated later.
