  1. Not sure how many on this forum frequant Retro Rides (one for sure) but, this thread of old truck pics has just been posted. I gather some very rare photos. Thought some might be interested https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/219273/dads-pickfords-photos-tank-haulage
  2. Thanks for your kind words - I am just in awe of these projects - as mentioned, a lot washes over me but, it is such a treat just to watch the skills and determination. cheers!
  3. Been watching this with great interest. Don't understand even half of it - but love it none the less. Especially with the muppet gif - I saw this on another forum.
  4. That is astonishing absolutely astonishing - well done
  5. Looks fabulous! As I was looking at the blade I recalled a story a friend told me years ago about his father. His father was working on the construction of the Alaska Highway when they cracked a dozer blade. The father said he could repair it before a new one arrived - the foreman took the bet. He did get it repaired over an entire weekend - but what he really wanted (and got) was a weekend's worth of overtime pay. The goal was never the blade. 😆
  6. If the paint is wet you better let it seal If the paint is dry you can do what you feel 🤣
  7. Oops for a minute there I thought we were still talking about accents in French. 😂 And yes I have had two beers. 😂
  8. Love this Adrian. Merci Beaucoup! RE: Presque vu, my son assures me that powerful epiphanies insights and revelations come at precisely one and one half beers. Stop then and you are golden. Finish that second beer and it's too late. 😂
  9. Looks like a speedometer cable end could work.
  10. adding to the excited words above I would completely remiss if I didn't add that it is absolutely bonkers in the best possible way. Watching with interest!
  11. Showed up on barnfinds - newer and for Chinese tanks but still https://barnfinds.com/what-to-do-nos-v-12-diesel-tank-engines/
  12. wow! quite a job, thanks for sharing and well spotted, that strikes me as the sort of issue that can vex you until you sort out what it actually is. please keep us included!
  13. Don't forget that type was set by hand with letters reversed to make the press work correctly - and speed was a virtue so, likely many more typos than we would ever be comfortable with in the age of spell check.
  14. Interesting find! Is there a college or training school nearby - helicopter/ recovery/ military who might want a training exercise? Even a group of motivated scouts?
