  1. Cracking work. I like the shade of OD too, where you getting it from?
  2. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve painted the inside of the cab, fitted it out with some of the bits n pieces and then painted the outside. We’ve got to test run the engine now before refitting the cab.
  3. yeah there does seem to be quite a bit of variation, i can only presume that was over time. Theres also ones in different languages. Think i've got a solution now. Thanks all
  4. Thanks, don't know how i managed to miss that.
  5. Afternoon all, Does anyone know where i can get a new sticker/label for a Pyrene fire extinguisher like the one in the picture? Many thanks, Richard
  6. Morning all, Does anyone know if the Red, Yellow and Blue of the REME badge have standard colour designations under BS381 or an equivalent as they would be painted on a vehicle? Many thanks, Richard
  7. Looking fantastic. Great job Sam. All the best, Richard
  8. You haven't got the neate brake on have you? Are all the brake cables around the diff slack? Good luck, Richard
  9. I've always had good results from https://www.acorn-ind.co.uk/ and https://www.vintagebearings.co.uk/ If the leather is just a flat piece of leather contact these guys https://www.par-group.co.uk/ they cut out new leather seals for my Scammells back hub seals.
  10. Hi Seamus, It’s good that you’ve had the same experience as me, and that you’ve found a solution. Of course the good thing about using cellulose thinners is its dirt cheap. I was talking to another a friend yesterday about painting and he does a lot priming at his place of work because they do blasting and he said he painted some railings once when there was snow on the ground and got a lovely finish. Think my previous idea that the warmer the weather the better was probably wrong. I’ve got a batch of small bits to do for the Scammell so I’ll try the cellulose thinner. Ch
  11. Doing a great job, will be nice to see it on the road. Don't want to hijack your thread, perhaps we could do with a painting thread, but i was interested by some peoples comments regarding painting, in particular what Pete Ashby said.

  12. Just bumping this to the top in the hope someone might be interested.
  13. Hi, yes its a 6LW. I recommend Gardner Enthusiast in Oxford for piston rings. He gets them made, all the other dealers buy them from him and double the price. Other than that theres Walsh Engineering in Manchester - http://www.gardnerdiesel.co.uk/ But i got most of my bits from Gardner Marine Diesels - https://www.gardnermarine.com/ they are friendly and helpful. Good luck, if you need any more pointers give me a shout i'm not far from you. Richard
  14. Nice work. I've always quite liked these. Have you got a trailer for it? Richard
