  1. we installed the Vintage air Mark 1V unit which is very powerful and fits up by the firewall and no problems for passenger legs/feet. try and see what they have, Tylden heritage has fitted at least 5 units now and you only have the truck cab, will cool really well. and no external fittings.
  2. Spot on 👍 Matt are those air hoses close to the firewall? If yes what air con unit are you fitting?
  3. I have looked closely at the picture of his fall climbing the stairs and how he landed on the stairs and grabbed the right side hand rail. A fit healthy man, even at 78, without a shoulder bag should be able to climb aircraft stairs easily and not have to hold the hand rail, he would not have fallen and landed as Biden did in the picture. A fit man would have controlled his fall and he could have grabbed the left side rail to balance his mis-step and stop his fall onto the steps. I don't see this here, which for me indicates he may not have been in control of his balance. Maybe he had a dizzie
  4. Hi Matt Your comments re the 220 exhaust manifold and exhaust stack frame you plan fitting. We have our 6 inch twin exhaust stacks attached to the side of our cab, with the flexible stainless steel sections under the cab. The LS sound and heat works excellently, we have no resonance or vibration, and I can hear the radio and CD's music very clearly, with the windows closed. The real joy is hearing the motor humming with the turbo whistling when driving with the window down, "music", I think the LS deadening effects eliminates or absorbs all cab, door metal and engine hood resonance, so th
  5. from far away here in Aussie land it seems to me that if his fall is real, he may be hurt and he is having trouble, is it possible that history is progressing faster than the team had anticipated and possibly soon you guys will have the FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT??? Or could it be a fake fall and then ... never discount any possibility!!!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!!!
  8. me, I'm thinking all to do with "climate change", rising temperatures, they are doing their bit to reduce CO2 emissions, therefore NATURAL VENTILATION
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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 👏👏👏
  13. 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
  14. Thank you for your pictures, wood walls and floor is good to reduce moisture/dampness and comfort to work.
