  1. A excellent example of restoration... a real Phoenix Tilly. Do let us know how the roadtest went....maybe with a vid, so we can hear how the Phoenix sounds Cheers Arjan
  2. Hi Tom, Love how your Tilly is coming together. It's hard to find Tilly doors. I think your solution is superb. I've made the interior of the doors from some "woodboard". It's the kind used between metalsheets. Do you have the winding mechanism for the windows?
  3. She keeps getting better.... can't hardly wait to see your Tilly finished... Amazing system for the trafficator.
  4. The two plates on the picture are from the same trailer. 80ZA54 is connected to contract S2490. But my second trailer had a plate with only 82ZA70 on it. The original plates are lost. I was hoping someone had a simular plate with the same number on it.
  5. My other GS trailer has two contractplates. I never understood why there was a plate with 80ZA54. But I was hoping that it was somehow connected to the contract system.
  6. the restoration of our second 10cwt GS trailer is going well. It's hard to find out what make it is. It does have several differences with our other trailer. Can anyone confirm that 82ZA70 can be part of contract S4198 or S5363? I think the trailer is from Orme Evans, but I'm not sure yet.
  7. You never forget that first ride out of the garage... :-) Looks very good! Can't wait to see the bonnet etc on the Tilly.
  8. The shape of the Tilly is definitely there. The first sight of such vehicle is motivating..... It always gives a smile on you face, when progress is visible. Keep up the good work!
  9. On my second trailer is a jeep connector bolted to the front. Does anyone know if this is original? It does have green paint under the red paint. Second question is about the front bracket of the suspension. My other trailer has got a different one. Can someone tell me more about these? Is it another make?
  10. The rear wasn't in good shape. The wood was bad, and while dismanteling the wood, most of it crubbled. The years of use and standing outside in Matla caused it had te be replaced. The rearbody was also a rebuild with lots of dents and holes. In Malta the also are handy with parts that don't belong in the Tilly. They had replaced the engine and gearbox with something else. To make it fit they just cut out some parts from the floor and floorpanels.
  11. It looking great. Did you use some original metal sheet? We made the rear body sides with new wood and new metal, as the old ones were beyond repair (dents and holes). It was also made of galvanized metal.
  12. Hi Tom, Do you have the special locks for the cabinets of the Tilly?
  13. Here is a picture of my 'pocket'. This was before the restoration...
  14. it was used for the drivers manual. it will fit perfect.
