Re: Question about Possible Military Stage One

Looks like it is going to be a fun project. That pocket is a custom addition.

I would have done that chop job a bit more elegantly and the hi-lo shifter is on the other side of the tunnel by look of it. Now, if they got hold of a Thomas lower PTO output and hooked up a PTO winch......

Re: Satge 1 rebuild...

Thinking of doing the transfer ratio swap rather than rebuilding the fairy it has, I haven't got the proper linkage and a slightly higher gear set will be better for bimbling around.

Right thought I'd take a minute to start with a few photos and a bit of a slower rebuild to Geofs!

You need to change your privacy settings on your Google Drive (?) to public for those photos.
