  1. Hi All I am looking for a Dash for my T16, mine is completely missing so anything considered Thanks!
  2. Thanks, I wasn't sure I should with it being US, I do need to get around to advertising it on Facebook though
  3. Decided to sell my Ben Hur Trailer. Nice overall condition, canvas is basically new, handbrake works and has a spare wheel and bargrip tyre Lights are postwar and currently not working, also the sprung loaded pin for the jockey wheel is replaced with a bolt but thats it. Tows nice, towed it behind my land rover a few times too. Perfect for putting a motorcycle in the back and also big enough to sleep in. £1200 but open to offers Located near Colchester
  4. Spent the other day helping recover a Morris C8 for a friend. Took most of a day to clear the route of old wood and rubbish so we could tow it out. Amazingly the tyres pumped back up and with a few attempts she rolled out She looks pretty original apart from the Harvey Frost crane although pretty battered and fairly rotten. Does anyone know anything about the front wheels? I didnt get a close up picture but they are not the usual split rim but have a locking ring like the GMCs etc.
  5. Been a while since an update. Finished it off a couple of months ago but forgot to update here. Also now sold unfortunately but is staying in the family
  6. Giving the Welbike a well earned going over. Stripping right back down to bare metal and etch priming and will finalize with some Service Brown. Also gives me an excuse to add details such as a more accurate tank number and the black behind the transfers.
  7. Spotted this in an old magazine today
  8. Got the Welbike out again yesterday. Is looking a bit tired and needs a spruce up so that will be my evening job over the next few weeks
  9. Thanks! Its not perfect but should be good fun
  10. Starting to look a bit smarter, windscreen in
  11. Quite a lot of progress since my last update Mainly the window surrounds for the doors and the electrics which caused a lot of grief! Still trying to sort the exhaust, it seems no two Gipsies have the same setup, will probably end up fabricating mine to fit and just do the job. Getting there, bring on the good weather to paint it!
  12. Agreed, fantastic work and all starting to come together. Gives us all something to aspire to
  13. Thanks for the info. I think there are some remains of grey in places, i assumed it was some kind of primer but what you say makes sense. Probably then repainted red and then postwar with DBG. Would be interesting to see pictures of these pumps in military service, obviously in my pumps case the towing vehicle had a very high tow hitch as it has the swan neck modification. Fantastic looking pump by the way!
  14. Looks like a fantastic project. Amazing it runs and drives so well after so many years of being stationary
  15. It was originally red, I can only guess they left the factory red and were painted green when purchased by the Army.
  16. Doesn't sound expensive to me, thats what i'd probably expect to pay for a used one
  17. Got a couple of first pattern packs but none in as good condition as that!
  18. Im sure I can sort a copy out for you if you are in no particular rush. Nice to hear of one being restored, is yours ex Army too?
  19. Fantastic project, look forward to seeing more Is that something tracked I see under the Mercedes?
  20. Repaired, painted and fitted the other door. Also got her running again this time with the fuel from the tank and with the rad fitted. Didnt take much at all before she ran. Sounds awful without an exhaust on and it smoked a lot!
  21. Hard top has been fitted and was later primed. Rear door all fitted just need to get some new seals for the glass. Near side door fitted (other side still needs repairing) Finally the fuel tank has been repaired by a local fabricator ( RG Services ) who replaced the whole bottom section, its currently being left with petrol in to double check for leaks.
  22. More bits cleaned and painted over the weekend:
