Mike, the sticker under the fuel filler should read "LEADED FUEL ONLY", I think I have those Moss items in my shed, and I also have the big rectangular on/off switches as used on workshop trucks n trailers, cheers Dennis

Thanks Dennis, that makes sense.

Did they have unleaded fuel in Vietnam in the 60s?

There is no sign that my new vehicle had one of those power boards, but it does have two very neat sheet metal panels sealing the front lockers from the tray area. They are fairly thin aluminium, probably fabricated from aircraft skin.

I have sorted out some of the Moss tie downs, and am on the trail of a set of canopy bows and a windscreen rail. (Hopefully!)

Does your workshop vehicle have the horizontal rails with the SLR mounts?

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi mike ,
Did you end up getting your canvas from wilderness ?
I recently inquired about a truck cab canvas for a series 2 workshop . Allan mentioned that he had um miss-placed his plans .
He also said there was another member after one .  Are you the other member that Allan spoke of  ?
Regards
Matthew

Hi Matthew,

Yes, I have spoken to Alan about the cab canopy.

As he is missing his plan for this, I am trying to find a old but copyable (is that a word?) canopy to use as a pattern.

He is happy to make one up from there if he can get one to copy.  The only issue was his backlog, he is about 9 months behind apparently......

I have also checked with phoenix, and unfortunately he does not have this plan in the REMLR archives either.

Did Alan from Wilderness mention a time frame to you?

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike ,
No , no time frame mentioned . He also didn't mention a price either . He just said " hang in there " and then mentioned you .
Pretty sure i have the original which has a good back on it but the top is shagged ... in the next couple of days work permitting i will get to where my workshop landy is and try and get a couple of pic's of it . Do you know what he needs in order to make a copy ?
Regards
Matthew

Thanks John,

When do you think Ian will have a cost for this?

If the canvas place is interested, maybe they can make more than one?

Let us know how you go,

Cheers,

Mike.
