Hi everyone. My name is Lynn Eades. ( Yep, i'm a guy) I'm just a bit closer to sixty than fifty, I have 3 adult children, and a very tolerant wife (Chris(tine)). The disease started with Dodges, developed into Jeeps, and finally morphed to Carriers. ( I did buy a C8AX CMP the day we were married)

We live on a hill looking out to sea, just north of Tauranga. Bay of Plenty. North island of New Zealand.

I have unfinished; Our house, a WC55 Dodge (gun motor carriage M6) A Willys Jeep. (A British Universal carrier) Armoured O.P.No.1, MarkIII(W) The bare bones of two real Bren Carriers(N.Z. built) Carrier Bren No2 Mark I, L.P. Various hull parts of a Canadian universal, and lastly the very rotten remains of a N.Z. built Aust. pattern LP2A Carrier.

In other areas, I go hunting occasionally, keep a few Deer, as pets, along with the wild pig, the dog, and the cats.

Im a kept man, (Chris working full time) while I build the house, and suppliment the income a little, servicing mobility scooters.

I'm an ex RNZEME "A" grade Mechanic, having spent many years in fleet maintenance (trucks, logging equipment, forklifts etc, and for many years self employed.

Hello Lynn sound like you are already very busy ! You must enjoy the hunt and searching for parts then ,I cant imagine ther being many Carriers down there to break for parts . Where do you general have any luck locating spares ? On the plus side with the advent of the WEB you can be any where and get most anything <for a price> sent anywhere !


Oh yeah and Welcome , Always like seeing what others are working on ,collecting .
