  1. Alex I have the same brass plaque, they are rare pieces it seems. Mine was dull and near black with grime, I have done a gentle clean and now looks similar to your plaque. I tried to polish the back side a bit harder to experiment to see how bright the brass may polish to. It did not/would not come up very bright, so I think it may be the quality of the brass made at that time. I cleaned all the grime from mine and it still has the old patina look. I have thought about giving it a clear coat but decided to leave original, been 1 year now and no change in the patina, has not dulled at all.
  2. Agreed Vlad, excellent observation, if the tyres blew but zero damage to the guard, the guard flaps and the metal frame , so maybe the rim damage cut the tyres, the driver pulled up and removed the tyres before any damage or is it made up to get our minds thinking what could have happened!!!
  3. me, I'm thinking all to do with "climate change", rising temperatures, they are doing their bit to reduce CO2 emissions, therefore NATURAL VENTILATION
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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 👏👏👏
  8. 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
  9. Thank you for your pictures, wood walls and floor is good to reduce moisture/dampness and comfort to work.
  10. Thank you for the pictures, a happy day for all to enjoy, blue sky and lots of 🐕's, sadly not for us in 2020
  11. 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
  12. Restoration Specialties in PA have the rubber bases and the inserts for the glass or plastic lens to sit on
  13. 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
