  1. Further down the page, officer's tents (brown & tan) with Guy ropes only. Poles are available separately, no tent pegs but easy enough to make if not for sale elsewhere. https://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/british-officers-tan-canvas-tent-6x6-ft-canvas-only.html

  2. And they will probably be fitted to a NOS cab as well 😂

  3. Hi there. Here's a picture of the 2 - cylinder Albion engine in my 1915 Barford and Perkins motor roller. (Taken in 2016) The copper - (non) asbestos gasket rings sealing the valve caps and the spark plug flanges (where low tension igniters were once fitted) were made by E Dobson & Co., Keighley. Valve springs were from Flexo Springs at Kingswood. Doc.

  4. Murphy's Law dictates that a pair of NOS doors won't show up until the day after you finished the repairs anyway.

  5. I was meant to take "Jessie" to the Large Model Association R/C air display at Elvington over the weekend just gone, but decided to pull out on Thursday. The forecast was for heavy rain/showers all weekend with some thunder storms. Since it was a two and a half hour drive each way, with manual wipers, I didn't feel it would be safe in the conditions and poor visibility. I think they got away with better weather than forecast, but on the Friday when I would have been travelling, it was hammering it down here, so I think I made the right call. It's still raining this morning! Hopefully the weather will improve for this coming weekend, when I plan to take "Jessie" and "Faith" the Dodge, to the Fishburn Wings & Wheels show, just a few miles down the road. This will be the first event for the Dodge since September 2019; so almost two years. The latest word from my builders is they hope to start on the garage modifications around the end of August, so hopefully the Dodge will be indoors before the winter. A separate company will be making the doors and have to wait unil the openings are complete for measurements. They have around an eight week lead time, so it looks like it will be a bit of a car port for a while until the doors can be delivered.

  6. Sadly I suspect that there is no way of avoiding it. But as Rootes75 said we know you will make a quality job of it 👍

  7. My brief to Suffolk is now at an end but not before refitting the petrol tank. I'm still in two minds about the orientation. This is the position it was in when I received the lorry but period images show it mounted differently. It will just squeeze on this way round but the tank is only partly seated on the near side saddle with the strap hard up on the seam. Perhaps this reproduction tank is a little short or maybe in civilian use the tank was mounted differently. One of the last jobs was to sand off and topcoat the front mudguards. Mercifully it's not flying insect suicide season in our corner of Suffolk.

  8. The BV element supply (24V DC) is fed to pins A & B but it must be controlled by the internal thermostat on pins C & D. The thermostat is controlled by a DC relay which is part of the vehicle installation that switches the supply to the BV..

  9. After a short break work has now resumed…. Attention has turned to the doors, I decided to start on the passenger door as that had suffered the most like everything else on the passenger side, it soon became clear that it had had major previous repairs 😩 I started by cutting away the worst of the rust, you know it’s bad when the previous repairs have also rusted away. The first sign of original paint on the truck!! At this point the door was getting smaller and lighter The main part of the door skin didn’t look too bad until the preparation wheel stripped the paint and revealed it was actually a tea bag!! Now…… the main question is…….when is a door just to far gone?? And I know the answer to this question but I am going to ask anyway……… “ Does anyone happen to have spare doors in better condition?? “ A pair of NOS doors that could be delivered by a flying unicorn 🤨
