  1. Me to. I came Saturday as usual. Yes it's quieter...and I agree possibly down 30 to 40%. But I've found it much more chilled out.....less noisey.....the stewards are friendly and chilled. It's been a great week for me...and some interesting vehicles still. I've enjoyed it much more.
  2. I apologise, my memory is getting worse! Just checked my photos and its SCO 60, very clear even on a photo! I know many are unreadable. barry
  3. Sorry guy I haven't got any service records yet. I've not got round to making the enquiry. I know it's a very early hull, number 9 I think, the tag is still readable on the rear.
  4. These are from when we put the engine in. Hope they show what you'd like to see Guy
  5. When we got it there was no engine in it. We put a mod recon in. I have a few pics of it with the engine bay empty. This is my first experience of a cvrt so I don't know how they should look. I'll try and post them up later.
  6. It does indeed still live. I'm the co-owner of it. It's truely fantastic to see the pics. Sounds like it's had a very eventful life, at the alvis show in August we met a previous crew member. He'd driven and commanded it in Catterick at some point. It had an engine fire as well while he was commanding it! it obviously wasn't cast in the end as it was converted to a Sabre. Barry
  7. Just shows its a small world! I'll get some photos up soon of the work we done
  8. Thanks guys, we worked hard for 4 days, we sourced an engine-and a nice 1 to :-) , dampers, track and a drivers seat. I collected all in a week up to the show, even getting the tracks delivered direct to the show itself. For 2 guys who have never worked on a cvrt it was daunting, but we figured there would be so much advice available it was to good an opportunity to miss, so we went for it! Thank you to Timbo and Chris for their help. Don't get me wrong its not finished, but we had a ball:-)
  9. I had the busiest show ever. We brought a Sabre in the last tender at Withams, and decided to take it to the show to tinker with. We had a day at home where we steam cleaned the outside, and started to clean out the engine bay and drivers position. I made a few calls and emails in the week up to the show, and it all started to fall into place. We collected an engine from Timbo on the Thursday before the show, loaded that Friday evening onto the Larry with the sabre. We moved into the show Saturday set up camp and just rolled the saber off the lorry. We started work on Sunday, finished cle
  10. Several years ago when I had my ferret, it had Larkspur boxes in which I wanted to keep. I found that there is an "I box" which can be used, which then allows use of the Larkspur harness/boxes without a radio. For some info try this http://wftw.nl/harnessb/harness.html
  11. Hi John, we are normally oppersite you, I think you helped us out last year when we were working on our 432 with some tools. Anyway if we are there just pop over and ask, will be there at some point on saturday. Will have the 101 there, 432 not commin down til Monday.
  12. I would like to add my thanks to the organisers, what a great show again. We are still here chilling out tonight before clearing up and going home tomorrow. We've had a great weekend and enjoyed ourselves. The FH70s fired saturday and today, a problem yesterday aparently. Living history was good, and all the vehicles in 1 field works well I think. Keep up the good work, and well done to all the team involved.
  13. Congratulations to you and your family Joris. Good to hear all well with your new addition.:-) Hope she sleeps well!
