Just double checking a few things.

Now if I remember it right, essentially the only difference to suspension parts between LWT's and Civi 88"'s are the springs?
Also brake pipe sets would be identicle (depending on year of course) as are master and slave cylinders etc.

Props and Uj's, exhaust's hand brake components etc.

What other Civi items are the same on the GS 12v Mil 88"'s and GS 12v LWT's?

Is there a "cross over" list on the web site somewhere?

Mal.
And the front bump stops are different. Otherwise I can't think of any differences. You need the retaining rod between the gearbox cross member and the gearbox if you have an 8-blade fan and, of course, the military axles were fitted with breather pipes as standard.

Just had a call From Richards Chassis'
Delivery due Thursday 15th Feb.

So just over 9 weeks from ordering (21st Dec 17) to delivery.

Just hope that the quicker delivery date is not a bad omen!

Just sent off the majority of No.35's bodywork for soda blasting prior to repairs.
As it was easier than to have them hanging around, I also sent in replacement tub, Bonnet, and front panel for this one as well.

Wings, seat box and other panel work, didn't seem as bad, so I will geton with them using the power sander and usual paint/crud removing tools at my disposal here at home.

I will also be sending out a set or two of original wheel rims, once I can find time to dig them out of the workshop. (and if my carple tunnel/ shoulder issues allow)

Regards,

Chassis has arrived.
Was surprised to see that the chassis mounts for the springs have come pre fitted with orange "polly bush's" on both chassis!.

Just need to find the other new bush's and the T-wash so I can do some prep and get the first one rolling!.

Sorry no pics as yet, as my photobucket is playing up.

Regards,

An exciting day when you have a lovely shiny chassis turn up so you can start the rebuild.
