  1. have a look at the facebook AHTS and the buyer has the Pete in his shed, washed up and more pictures, since my last post
  2. The Pete looks like the Pete that was on the AHTS Facebook page recently. If yes it is a 1960 special order and 1 of the last built, it was built from factory left over parts, I think motor is 250 Cummins and 5 X 4 transmission. Facebook comments was that a deceased estate, when alive the owner wanted $40,000 and the buyer at auction said he got it for under half the $40,000 asking figure. Comment was that new owner will restore to original. Motor not running.
  3. Mattb73lt - you guys could be in a scene of the "Expendables", better than the actors, thank you for your service and courage. My bike riding mate was 19, he did 13 months in Vietnam, he weighed 70 kilos and carried 70 kilos of gear, good health and happiness to you all
  4. Compliments for your passion, you are deservedly excited with the red paint after all your quality preparation, then fitting parts etc, when you fit your cab onto the chassis and bolt on the polished cast alloy radiator, that will pump the heart up. Thank you for sharing your skills and progressive pictures 👏👏👏
  5. is that lizard skin on the inside of door? If yes you will find how there will be little to nil tinny sound when you close the doors
  6. the 2 piece sides are good idea, the longer aluminium hoods on B75 do flex a lot when lifted and closed, and I have to be careful to prevent scratching the air cleaner pipes, the side hinge will add some support to reduce the flex- the louvers will add a break in the long side panels and great custom look 👍, will the louvers be similar to the 50's Diamond T larger louvers or the smaller slats as on old 30's-50's car hoods and what type of clamps will you fit - the original B model style clamps?
  7. Thank you for your pictures, wood walls and floor is good to reduce moisture/dampness and comfort to work.
  8. Thank you for the pictures, a happy day for all to enjoy, blue sky and lots of 🐕's, sadly not for us in 2020
  9. Hi Brocky, I posted a photo scanned to my computer file in Aussie trucks on 18 Sept as per usual, yet some 8 days later I repeated exactly the same process to choose a file and I get an error message - unknown server error Mick's Loadstar V6 GM at Pronto Ringwood 1981.PDF code 200
  10. Restoration Specialties in PA have the rubber bases and the inserts for the glass or plastic lens to sit on
  11. Please can one of you guys assist me to load pictures. I was able to load a picture 10 days ago, but now I keep getting an error message
  12. Hi Barry, please can you guide me to load pictures, I used to be able to load my pictures easily, has there been a change to the Big mack web page? Thank you Harry
  13. Well said, clean agi's is a labour of love, my cousin is an owner driver with Holcim and 1 of his close mates has been with Boral concrete for 35 years, all the guys in their plants are very fussy with their agi's, especially continuously cleaning out left over concrete in their barrels, today the barrel metal skin is relatively thin, if left over concrete builds up, to remove it can easily become holes in the barrel skin, both these 2 guys have all the alloy tanks etc polished every 6 months. There are some smaller private owned concrete plants that have all their company owned trucks and bar
