GMC and Military Vehicle Services Recomendation

Recommended Posts

I just want to recommend and Thank Mike Gillman and the boys at Green Barn Services for the fantastic work they have dome on my truck - those of you who have followed the progress on the CCKW Facebook page or the West Sussex Military Vehicle Conservation Group pages will be aware of how much work has gone into "Gracie-Mae"  - but for those of you who haven't - about 12 months ago I presented Mike with a very sorry looking truck that I had fallen in love with......After discussing what needed to be done and agreeing a plan of action, Mike and the boys converted to a 12v system which included an Alternator, upgraded the lights and wiring, replaced the manifold/exhaust, serviced all serviceable parts ,fitted an additional leisure battery and charging system in the rear of the truck, replaced the brakes all round, and including the hydrovac, rebuilt the rear body extensively with most of the tin work and roof replaced along with the windows , the rear body required new insulation, Mike also repaired the door skins, rebuilt the windscreen surround, rebuilt the clutch,gearbox/transfer box and axles as well as many,  many other bits of work needed to restore this old lady back to her former self.

At all times Mike and the boys were friendly and accommodating to my requests and changes - with many missing parts designed and fabricated in house by Mike....he even gave her a coat of Olive Drab before I brought her home so she looked much more presentable !

Mikes knowledge is second to none, he's approachable and friendly , but importantly - he's a mechanical engineer rather than a fitter and is a stalwart of rebuilding rather than replacing  -

Mike has his own collection of Vehicles including a Ward la France and a GMC and is passionate about keeping customers vehicles on the road and exhibiting them.

I cant recommend Green Barn Services enough - they are located nr Horley /West Sussex and would be my recommendation to anyone who requires assistance with a Military Vehicle
