  1. I THINK the camper-type covers you can buy are breathable - seem to be multi-layer and I never had a problem with condensation between the cover and panels. But I had thought at one stage of trying one of those Nissen-style pop-up garages, but I don't really have the room and not sure how durable these things are.
  2. One of the bugbears of our obsession is finding somewhere to park/store our MVs and with Winter fast approaching, the potential problem may be pressing. It's also an issue that tends to put people off owning anything bigger than a Jeep or a Land Rover (hence the prices of those common items, cf much more interesting but larger beasties!). Now some kit really IS fragile and deserves at least dry airy roofed storage, but IMHO most stuff was built to be stored outdoors for goodness sake and with some preparation and care it is perfectly possible to park up the love of your life on outdoors hard
  3. I have a heavy duty "ultimate" car cover for my old Austin Seven from these people and it is really good. VERY well made indeed and has been totally weatherproof with tie down straps, etc. Soft too. The Seven is parked on the drive so the cover needed to be good. I could not find one tailored specifically for your Jeep but I would be surprised if they couldn't help you. Likely cost you £150 plus but it should last years and is way way better than other types. You gets what you pays for. https://www.classicadditions.com/en-GB/outdoor-car-covers/ultimate-outdoor-car-cover/prod_10077
  4. Doesn't say on Facebook. I would have thought £6250 is a tad optimistic! If they get shot at £4k, they will be doing well.
  5. Ron - do you want me to send him a message on Facebook to contact you?
  6. There is a selection of Commerces, Austin and Bedford postwar military trucks up for sale on Facebook marketplace at present - just advertised. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/616064075733343
  7. Nice and original looking but too much ££££ for me. Thanks and good luck with the sale.
  8. No, still looking. Price on yours and photos? Cheers!
  9. I use ACF50 although that is not a permanent fix and needs to be re-applied. AND it is expensive, but I find its good for holding trouble spots at bay. Great on motorcycles for that oily rag finish.
  10. Anyone know what the annual road tax is on an '86 era L/R Tithonus 110, fitted with a 200 TDi if that makes a difference?
  11. "Any suggestions on a specialist to send these to for refurbishment." I have only had motorcycle instruments done and I hesitate to recommend the guy I use, but there are a few specialists in UK and it is likely that someone on here has a recommendation for Jeep ones. Maybe even just try ringing one of the trusted restorers and ask who they use - like Jeffereys. I presume you would rather use the originals.
  12. Looks a nice practical project and best of luck with it. As to instruments, that would be something I would not tackle myself as it is very easy to make a right mess of them and end up with something that looks naff. I prefer to put them the way of trusted specialists who make a fantastic job - either just get working (properly and reliably) retaining the patina or a full restoration. Its good to keep these people going, but good for you if you think you can tackle it.
  13. It was civilianised after demob in '46 and present owner bought it in '96 and put it back in military trim, although I am not sure that is true, even for a Tourer in 1939?? Still a bit blingy, as you observe, and colour looks non-military (going by pics). Still, personal choice.
