Reproduction Series 2 A Placards
« on: October 30, 2015, 01:48:32 PM »
Hi everyone,

After a lot of work, we are finally able to reproduce pretty much all of the 2 A aluminium photo etched placards.

The originals on most peoples vehicles are starting to show the signs of 60 years or so of hard life, or are missing entirely!

This includes,

Nomenclature plates, Service Data plates, Fuse box, Winch PTO, Tyre life, vehicle repair/ into service plates, engine Tappet clearance, and the big Front Wheel Drive one above the instrument panel.

As per this photo:



These are the originals, the repro ones will of course be new!

As far as the Nomenclature and Servicing Data plates go, could anyone who is interested in these please let me know their vehicle type, and if possible provide a photo of the old plates (if you have them).

So far we are producing these for the 88 1/4 ton GS and the 109 3/4 ton GS, but we can make them for any vehicle variant so long as we know what the original plate looks like.

For the Chassis number and dates for the Nomenclature and repair plates, I will look into getting hold of a set of punches, and would be happy to stamp them up with the correct info if required.



We are also reproducing the Recommended Lubricants adhesive label that was fixed to the gearbox tunnel on the early 2 and 2A vehicles.



This label also appeared on the civilian vehicles of the same period, perhaps installed by PMC?

Don't worry Rod, we are finally also making the RADIO placard for the FFTs.

We are still finalising the prices, more info soon on that.

If we could have expressions of interest and any photos of required Nomenclature / Service data plates, either to this thread or email to milspeclabels@gmail.com

I will update this soon with some prices,

Cheers,

Mike.

No problem Mick,

We should be able to knock some of those up.

I'll send you a pm.

Thanks Howard, I know you were chasing some of these.

I'll update this soon with some prices.

Cheers,

Mike.

Okay.

I've just been talking to the printer, and I have worked out some prices.

Once again, I started this project mainly due to the fact that I need some of these, and it just grew from there. I have been asked for a few of these by a few people, so hopefully these will come in useful for everyone else s restorations.

These placards will be photo etched aluminium, in the correct colours and to the same dimensions as the originals including the correctly placed holes for the fasteners.

There may be a minor variance in the thickness of the alloy plate, but apart from that they should be the same as the ones that came with the vehicles.

We are using the same professional printer that produced the first lot of switch labels, so the quality will be the same as the originals from the 60s.

The Nomenclature and Service data plates are very specific for the type of vehicle.

If you want any of these, let me know the census number and vehicle type, and if you can, send me a photo of the one that you need, and we should be able to make them up.


So, here is a list of what we will be able to make.




1. Nomenclature plates $25.00



2. Servicing Data plates $ 25.00



3.  Front Wheel Drive placard $25.00



To be continued,

And the last ones,

And we will produce some reproductions of these aluminium foil labels,

10.  Recommended lubricants label  $12.00



This was fitted to the Series 2 CRs and the 2As up to at least 1964. (and maybe later). I know that it did not appear on my 70 GS.

11.  And the RADIO label fitted next to the Ammeter on the FFTs.  $ 6.00



All of the photos are for reference only, they are of the originals, and have marks / damage / fading etc. The repro ones will be new.We are taking a lot of care to get these exactly right.

All of the prices include GST.

Postage will be extra, We will do registered mail as we did with the switch labels, although the packages will be a bit bigger!

If you could let me know what you need, I'll put the order in.

Send me a pm, or email to milspeclabels@gmail.com

At this stage, I'll close this expression of interest on Sunday November 15.

Apologies for the multiple posts, I couldn't work out a way to p[ost more than 3 photos at once.



Cheers,

Mike.

No worries Pete,

I've just spoken to the Art department (my Daughter), and that should be fine.

I have a missing one as well, on someones wall somewhere I guess.

Land -Rover 88" Series IIA. No worries.

Incidentally, I will try and get hold of a set of 5/32 Number and letter stamps, so the vehicle details can be stamped on if required.

Mike.
