  1. i think i speak for us all when i say we really want to see it running and painted. keep it up
  2. i recently bought six packs and may be able to help out if you can wait a while
  3. i recently bought a smart charger from ebay for £13.99 and was happy with it's performance. it will charge 6 12 and 24v. its yellow and black and looks a bit like a multimeter, the manufacturer is katbo
  4. i don't have any to spare but you can repair them yourself if you are mechanically minded
  5. i believe it is quite easy to fix the solenoid as they mainly fail due to bad contact on the smaller coil
  6. as ever your eye for detail and ability to fabricate are very impressive
  7. hydrochloric acid (brick cleaner) is excellent and will clean the copper like new in seconds but it will dissolve aluminium and also zinc from brass so use it wisely
  8. it's interesting because i can just make it up as i go along. if i can get it to swim that would be great, as it sits the internal volume is 8 cube but after it's chopped it will be down to 5,5. should still be enough to float
  9. it looks to have been up and running as a demonstrator but was stripped afterward. the current plan is to get hold of a beefy chassis and big yank diesel with autobox to go under it. i could use a land rover but i want it to be strong. i'm also going to make it amphibious as it's already a sealed steel box so it will float whether you want it to or not! should be an interesting project and will make a welcome change from slavish restoration
  10. luckily no police about in scotland, although i might have got ping'd by a mobile speed camera on the way back down the M6
  11. Really pleased with it. Got an old range rover to mount it on but not sure if its man enough to take the weight. We'll see.
