  1. Thanks for the info regarding the Jack, I’ll keep a look out and hopefully can get one for a reasonable price to reunite with the GG.
  2. Hi mate, thanks for watching the video and taking the time to leave me a comment. You present a valid argument and I was not aware of the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004, however the legislation covering blue lights and sirens still make use of the term Fire brigade purposes. Interesting to hear about your experience and I appreciate the debate. My GG is still registered as a Fire Engine so potentially I can delve into registration with the forestry commission and see if that could provide some top cover.

  7. Hi Richard, thanks for the answers it’s great to be able to have someone put these questions to bed so quickly. Have you got any links to what the jack looked like? I’m imaging it must of been pretty beefy as the chassis is so high off the ground. What’s your take on putting the washer bottle in the glove box?
  8. While I wait for some parts to be delivered I did a quick walk through of what's inside this particular 1956 green goddess. It came with some strange items which were not definitely not standard issue.
  9. Hi there, thanks for the comment. The coolant I used is made from ethylene glycol although it is of course red. I find that the colouring system is rarely adhered to by content and more by the climate it’s designed for. Thanks thought, that could of been a messy error.
  10. Episode 1 of the restoration; changing the coolant. Pft what a simple 5 minute job I hear you say. Unfortunately not...
