  1. Hi Ray, there is a chap on ebay who had some for sale https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/amboise1 Nothing to do with me, but you could contact him to see if he has any more knocking about?
  2. I really can't remember I'm afraid! I think it was 4 or 5 mm, I bought a sheet of it off ebay but can't find it in my past purchases even! Sorry about that..!
  3. Link to my trailer restoration if you are interested Ray.. It's been stalled for a while, hope to get more done over the winter this year Linky..
  4. Hi Ray There should be spacers I think, a couple of pictures of my trailer you can see them I see you have the hole in the front end for the lights cable
  5. Both the box and brackets have been added, neither would have been there when the trailer was issued
  6. I was in BAOR in the 80s and all our tow hooks were painted green or black along with the rest of the vehicle camouflage with the exception to the inside of the hook which was "lightly greased", same for the tow eye of any of our trailers. I would think the red oxide is the factory colour, the other colours would be as it has gone through usage/paint jobs. Bear in mind, we would paint our trucks and land rovers regularly for various inspections etc so the black green colour demarcation would change over time. I also remember taking land rovers on a skiing expeditions or adventure training where we had to "civilianise" them. To do that we would pop down to the paint store and see what they had, I painted land rovers all yellow and all red, but we soon realised getting them back to green and black post exercise took a lot of effort so we then just went for an all over matt black look! No paint booths, spray guns or anything fancy like that, just brushes and petrol to thin the paint... normally having a fag at the same time..!
  7. Hi Josh. I'm in the process of restoring a 10CWT mortar trailer. From what I can find, these trailers were not generally fitted with lights in the factory, most were retrofitted or fitted post war I do intend to fit lights to my trailer, but these will be period so a single convoy light and single tail light so I am putting a light board together, using retro light fittings but modern bulbs, that I can remove and put in the trailer once at shows, at least that way, I should be road legal and safe on the way to and from shows
  8. This is a bit of a trip down memory lane! I worked on IARRCIS and later ATTACS in the system support groups for both so was involved early on in the development of these things..! We had the main grey terminal boxes (can't remember their name), the smaller green "laptops" that were called Liaisons as they were allegedly portable! as well as Cisco routers, hubs, printers all in tempest protection so weighed a tonne to lug around! I think someone was asking about the big brass connector, if they meant this one, its the ruggedised fibre connection that had a big brass, rip your skin off connector! These were adapted to point vertically as they were shoved back against a wall or something and would snap the fibres which IIRC were a good few thousand each! There is a later version up for auction I see... https://bid.mod-sales.com/auctions/7759/witham10115/lot-details/5991bfab-c084-4cee-9cfa-acea00f58edd
  9. What a great thread on a not so common vehicle..! Great work!
  10. Dallas Auto do one https://www.dallasautoparts.com/product/radio-junction-box-kit-mb-gpw/
  11. I was thinking more along the lines of if you main cross member was usable, you may only need the rest..? Or you could get a local fabricator to knock out a bit of had channel for that piece? I had to do that for the cross member that goes under the rear of the tub
  12. The main cross section in my photo is the JMP piece in the picture and at the time I restored my jeep they only did the ACM2 replacement channels you have pictured and as I have a ACM1 tub, that was the only piece I used... So, I have the rest spare if you want to PM me an offer?
  13. I added some stock steel in place of the original oak, loads of primer and then dynax wax I use this stuff on the Jeep and my wifes VW Camper
