  1. Hi everyone, I was just passing by to let you all know that soon I'll be having some more time to lay my hands on the Morris again. As seen on the pictures above, meanwhile Guy has taken very good care of mine and his Morris. As he told earlier, it would be great to have both vehicles rolling again side by side in the near future. They might be ready by the 2019 Normandy landings commemoration but I can't promise since most of the work depends on the available time Guy has. I am so, so grateful for what he did so far. I have to confess that I am, by far, not such a technician as he is and so I leave most of the work done by him. Anyway, we'll bring them back to the UK one day for a visit to their home-country when we head for the War and Peace show some year, which one I skipped this year... Kind regards to all of you!

  4. Hi everyone, Here we are again with a long awaited update. My excuses therefore. Meanwhile many things happend shich made it hard for me to keep u informed untill now... So at the moment I have found a good soul willing to help me with this project. The vehicle currently is dismantled and many problems and misteries occured. Lets get us an overvieuw: - First of all the cabin seems not to have been fixed on the chassis after privious retaurations, it was simply standing loose on it - On the chasis and elsewhere we noted indications that the vehicle originaly was not a radio wagon but the radar wagon type. (i can get u a photo of a Fordson alike model if u'd like) - Technical condition (such as engine and electronics) were either broken or on later age fixed in a non proper way. A new engine has been bought allready and is ready to be further assambled atm since a cylinder melted away in the original engine. - The cabin seems somehow to have been re-assambled in a bad way, non-original and even modern tools and materials were used. Pieces of Landrover were found, wrong wooden parts were attached everywhere, roofing was used in the weelcases and on the cabin roof,... - About the paintjob... well it doens't look like sh*t to be honest, paint was added just to get the vehicle painted. ... All in short, the vehicle wasn't treated with love and respect after all So it seems like the restauration will take us quiet a while and also the cost is gona be a little higher than expected. So far it's current condition. A more detailled updat will follow soon as well as a follow up status report on the evolution of the proyect! Because of the high restauration cost I decided to start a Crowdfunding. I'd like to share it however it is in Dutch unfortunatly. but do not feel obligated to make a donation at all! http://www.worldofcrowdfunding.com/restauratieproject-morris-commercial-mkii-radar-wagon-1942-6#project-content-placeholder kind regards!
  5. Hi everyone, So far noone yet offered me a hand to help getting my MC restored. However I've even mailed to some canvas repairing company's but noone replied yet. Some of you have send me suggestions of people they know who are somekind into Morris Commercials which I have emailed as well but untill now noone replied yet. Anyway thanks for the tips. Either they have all stopped their hobby or noone is willing to help so far. However, I won't give up and continue my search, meanwhile I hope some of you are willing to help me for finding a good soul willing to help me. So still, any tips are welcome. Kind regards, Nico please do not hesitate to contact me in private (mail or mobile +32 479 50 97 73)
  6. ATM the Morris in in Belgium in the region aroud Aalst, like 20 miles Nort-west of brussels. I am willing to come over to England if needed for a week to bring over the Morris to have it checked by someone to see what needs to be done exactly. Then we can see further how we will do the actual restauration. I hope to hear from someone willing to help soon. Kind regards
  7. Hi again everyone, I hereby would like to ask the MORRIS COMMERCIAL specialists out there if anyone is willing to help me with the engine restauration of my MC. I therefore would like to come over to the UK bringing the MC with me for as long as needed. So if possible I'll need someone having the necessary abilities, goodwill and lots of time. So far the engine is working well but it still needs a complete review. Any suggestions and questions are welcome. Kind regards, Nico
  8. Hi all, At the moment I am very occupied with my job due to the end of the year period but thereafter I will send some more pictures Also some enginepictures will follow. Kind regs
  9. Thanks Julian And thanks everyone for welcoming me! Kind regards to you all, Nico
  10. Hi there, You've got a point right there, however I suffer extreme difficulties when I try to keep up with the rest of the column when we are having a tour on events... Also after a few kilometers I am willing to throw in the towel, beside I am in good physic condition Thanks to the Morris, the roles are turned and the BSA folding can join the ride in the back of the truck
  11. Hi there, That sounds just great, As I told bove, any tools, tips, etc. are hulpfull, if you want, can u send me some pictures. I'll pm you for further agreements. Thanks in advance! regards
  12. That's indeed onde of the reasons why it needs restourations, Overtime it seems like the Morris has been re-painted and was given some unouthentic signals, therefor I need information obout the exact camouflage and signals which I should have to adjust to the vehicle to bring it back to its original exterior looks. The same has been done to the engine. You will see when I post some photo's of the engine that it needs some work as well, also some more "modern"parts have been adjusted in the engine, therefor i need a MC engine expert to have a look at it and to help me by restoring the engine as good as possible to its original looks.
  13. Hi Stuart, The vehicle was indeed for sale on Milweb as well, I heard about it via some friends and decided to check out the Morris myself and here it is, I took it with me
  14. Pictures part 1: btw, don't mind the gray car, it's not mine...
  15. Help, intel and knowledge wanted for restoration project! Hi everyone, I hereby would like to inform everyone interested that I am willing to completely restore my MORRIC COMMERCIAL CW4 MKIII radio wagon back to its original looking. A follow-up nlog will be created so everyone will be able to see the advance as soon as it takes off. Now before I start the restorations, I'd like to ask you all for any possible help since I am not a hero in the mechanical part. If anyone maight be some kind of MC engine specialist, please let me know. atm the vehicle is located in Belgium but I am willing to bring it over to the UK if people are willing to help me out with this. I so far also need more intel about the original interior of the radiocabin and the marks on the exterior of the vehicle. More about this, including pictures are on the way!
