The munga is coming to bits slowly(due to illness).Everthing is being labelled and noted where it goes.Hopefully wont be long before the body is off.

It would be interestin to see a blog of your rebuild, especially as they seem to have odd characteristics the unwary should be made aware of. Seems like a very affordable MV, but you need to know the "ins and outs " of it.

Looks like your father is doing very well. No problem with giving him my phone number etc, happy to help him. I have tried to get into my account on this site, but can't. So I will do your friend request as soon as I can get in.

Due to the Munga being sat outside for a few years , various bits are rusty.Number plate lights being one item, after looking on german e bay (wrote to the e bayer in english then translated to german via Google!) , i found some , they came today sealed in plastic bags from new with a little wiring diagram dated 18th November 1971! .

(Andy will try and get some more when funds allow, csa on my back again !! :argh:)

The existing two seats have been stripped of all their remaining bits of fabric , and look ok for blasting.Need two more frames, and cushions for all four seats.(bad examples would be ok as long as we can take a pattern off them and use the insides .The bases and backs are the same .:coffee: )

After spending most of the day jammed under the dash,my father has now found that it would be better if all gauges are renewed.(now looking out for some )

Ok, I will look around and see what I can find. Don't hold your breath for an original tempreture gauge, like the rocking horse sh1t1

If he can get them to me, I may be able to refirb. Get hime to give me a ring, and I will see what I can do. I have PM'ed you about some other bits.

Hi, if you can give me the number on the plate on the engine side of the bulkhead (startes 038). I will pass on to chap in Germany, who will provide history and letter to date etc. This should ensure DVLA gets it right.

Bits are slowly coming off the Munga , all the wiring is out now and some of the elecrical boxes are being looked inside.some of the items are like new inside so thats good.

The bulkhead and gearbox plates are good but the dash board ones have seen better days.....:coffee:

P.S

Would have done more today , but it was sunny and the Jeep needed a run out!!!

Spent most this afternoon under the Munga,took out all the body mounting bolts(most were fairly loose).

We also took the exhaust off , its knackered but the stainless end section is ok.Whilst under there today i noticed the body is in really good condition, it will just need a few small patches seeing to .

All the handbrake is off the body, it is solid so needs freeing .

Will actually lift the body off now when we can get it under the hoist....:coffee:
