  1. Fantastic! Im truly amazed at how much everything is moving around! Looks like shes got some miles on her! Plenty of patchwork! Amazing and great video with great sound.
  2. Thanks for the reply, this is something I have looked into doing, putting in a smaller tank replacing the fuel pump to a modern equivalent but have decided against it, as much as the fuel quantity is large, the farm where I keep my vehicle does fully intend to use it as a working vehicle to help them out, which also makes my rent cheaper! But for the sakes of my limited fabrication skills etc I decided to follow down this route and just trying to future proof myself until the time comes to fully sort out my fuel tank and replace with a newer alternative. Ive got full new filters and lines going in to ensure that the new supply of diesel is at the best it can be!
  3. Hey all, I am looking around online at different fuel tank repair options, forgive me if this is in the wrong area Ill happily move it but thought as it is generic I would post in this area. I am currently repairing my fuel tank due to damage in my 434, and maybe I am being overly paranoid but because I never ever ever want to take this thing back out I want to make sure when it goes back that it has as much work done to it now so it can live in there quite happily. I have come across this thing called fuel tank "Re-Nu". (https://www.fueltanks.co.uk/) It advertises on there they have done classic vehicles, to sherman fuel tanks, DAF drops and jeeps. I am just wondering has anyone come across this before or had it done to their fuel tanks? What are you experiences? Would you recommend it? Let me know, thank you. Seb
  4. I dont have one for sale but the FV432 forum has all the drawings on there for making your own if you know a fabricator! Is it for a pack lift or to have as part of your kit?
  5. Morning all, Sorry for the delays with this, life etc. So I have finally got my two documents back that I would prefer from the MOD release. This took a long time for the documents to appear which I would assume through COVID and holidays. Sadly they proved little to no difference in the plan but it doesn't hurt to get them to make sure. Both documents fully photographed to make sure I got all the details which has in depth information about the failures etc. If I have time I will write it all up into a word document if anyone is actually interested. The final drawings are back now and I have made some measurement alterations. I also need to finish discussing the tensile strength of the replacement bolt. If you are still interested in the project can you please email fv430trackpads@outlook.com and this will be a pseudo official channel for myself to record and for yourselves as a method of communication. Could you please include your name, contact number and quantity of pads you would like. I will leave this open for a month. After this I will speak to the company to gain the prices off this level of manufacture, communicate back out to you all through email and we can then decide to proceed or not. Hope to hear from you all soon.
  6. Backing plate curved as per original bud. They have been designed off the old pad to be a 1:1 replacement part. The only thing that will be different is the thread moved to metric as this will lower the cost of the production. Each pad comes with all fittings as well which is useful. Please see snippet of one of the drawing which shows the backing plate. Thanks
  7. Hello all, Just to keep this all updated and show this isnt a pipe dream! Got a final set of drawings back from the factory. I am now in the process of working out how to bill anyone who is interested in the pads so that we can get the process made and get the final price per pad nailed down. As mentioned at the start I am not in this to make any money at all and just want to help everyone out if possible! Getting a new supply of pads would be a great benefit I feel to the community. If you know anyone who wants to join in on the order now is the time. As once I have committed to the mould that is when we agree the pricing and get them ordered. Looking like the cut off if work is kind to me will be January/Feb and delivered a couple weeks later. Thanks for your patience just doing this all in my spare time amongst other things is slowly taking its toll! Thanks Seb
  8. Hey mate all is quiet at the moment, this will be something that is happening next year, the pad has been sent with my CAD files across to the factory. Triple checking everything before I commit to paying for the mould. Once I get the go ahead I will be then working out a complete and open way of invoicing and sourcing finalised pricing and quantities for all of those who are interested and then its generating the invoices! Hope this helps. I was hoping to hear back from them in the 2nd week of December so I should have a good plan ahead of the new year. It also allows me to get a test pad onto a vehicle as well which will then be good to see if its right! Thanks Seb
  9. All CET parts now sold, have 3 props left, started to let them go for £100. Will take an offer for all 3 to make space.
  10. I am hoping for more news on this next week.
  11. The pads at current I am working with are at being rated at 95a shore. Thanks
  12. Good evening all, sorry to be late reply. Firstly in reply to you diesel1 this would not be a problem to sort out your VAT Claim. Please drop me a message if you could with what you would like. Terry I have reached out and spoken to this gentleman from Australia who has assisted me with this. We have been talking about manufacturing costs and shipping with taxes makes it just as expensive as buying the NOS pads that you can currently buy from online auction sites and other vendors. It was because of this I decided that I would do something in the UK as its almost a 50% saving than bringing those in from Australia. As per cook defence I have contacted them and they were not able to assist in this venture. And for anyone else who is interested please see the below for what I have been up to. In the realms of measure twice and cut once and to check the integrity of the drawing I produced I decided to cut open a take off and check the steel plate. I used my drawings to laser cut out two templates. To check the dimensioning. I have recently acquired several NOS pads and therefore went through them to check the sizing and making it a perfect fit. With this stage I have now submitted the drawings and a NOS pad to the factory for detailed moulding and this should give me "nailed" down product and moulding costings. I will keep you all updated as I go. But again if you are interested in this please get in touch. Thanks all Seb
  13. Figured I would see if any of this of any use to you before listing elsewhere. I have 2 CET Swing arms NOS from withams and are no longer of any use to me. £100 for both. 4 x CET Hydraulic tanks with fittings. They have dip sticks, filler caps and fittings. £100 for all four. I also have some props I made for a railway wartime weekend and are replica 88mm Shells. Please see the photos. They are made of steel and with being props for throwing about are not perfect but are a bit different. They are fairly heavy so I would prefer to deliver them. Got 8 of them. With the moulding and fabrication they cost a fair amount to make but would be happy with £125 happy to take offers for more than one as I really need to make space for the next project. I will drop them off as long as youre within a respectable distance of the NW. (Cheshire) Also have a fairly pitted Kwk 43 L71 round if anyone could be interested. Thanks
  14. No problem you have my email so if you find out message me through there if you would like. I should have answers by this week!
