  2. A good idea I’ve not tried myself yet is to buy 2 cheap engine stands with a single or double long box section leg. Buy a length or two of box section of the next size down and connect the 2 together with the right distance apart to mount the tub. This gives you a very professional rotisserie that can be used for lots of different vehicles. something like this would work https://www.manomano.co.uk/p/car-engine-stand-support-mount-heavy-duty-swivel-transmission-workshop-gearbox-182308 To end up with something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heavy-duty-rollov

  5. cheque the date of your jeep as late pedals did not have the cast type the plane ones had a type of grip tape on them you can simulate this with grit sand in the primer then paint the top coat in green i had to make the ones on my late war time jeep and my next ford is the same and deep mud exhaust pipe you can make this from an m38 jeep with a bit of cutting and welding

  6. Without any doubt the best foundry for our kind of work in the North East is the William Lane Foundry in Middlesbrough. There is a lovely video of what they do on their website. https://www.williamlanefoundry.uk/ They have cast Thornycroft radiator tanks and if you catch them at a time when they are pouring the metal that you need they might even produce your casting whilst you wait.

  7. I found this video of Barging Through Old London in 1924 in colour [AI enhanced and colourized] very restful to watch, a few good shots of traffic showing what may be pre WW1 commercial vehicles:
