Good morning everyone,

The quote is in, and it works out to be $180.00 for a set of placards for each Truck, plus registered post.

I will have full placard sets for the MK 3, MK 4, F1 GS and if required, the F2 Dump truck. (I have only 1 order for the F2 at the moment)

And a separate set of the large placards for the Hiab crane at $145.00 (3 of these in this set, SWL diagram, Crane stowing/unfolding and the control placard.)

These sets will comprise all of the original placards, photo etched onto aluminium as per the originals.

Each set will have,

Nomenclature, Winch, Gearbox and Servicing data plates, as well as the upper and lower switch panel labels, and the Winch Clutch, Fuel Tanks, Panel Lights, Map Light, Normal / Blackout (F1/2 only) and the CG one for the tray.

All of them have been very carefully checked and will be an exact copy of the originals.

At this stage, they should be printed up in 2 weeks or so, but definitely before Corowa.

As soon as they are printed, I will post up some photos.

Thanks very much to Raavin and David for an extended (!) loan of your original placards!

If anyone is aware of anyone else who would be interested in a set of these for their truck, please let me know asap.

Cheers,

Mike.

Frank, PM sent, thanks for your prompt support!

Tim, no problem, as soon as they are delivered, I will sort out the postage and get them out to you.
Could you send me a pm with your address?

I am keen to see these on as many vehicles as possible, so I might put a set on eBay, but only after all of the orders are done from here on REMLR.

Thousands of dollars? Let me know who these people are, and you get a commission! ;D ;D

Cheers,

Mike.

A quick update.

Last week the printers ran off some of the F1 GS and F1 dump truck placards as a rush job for Corowa.

This worked out really well and I was able to deliver some of these to dkg001 and they went straight onto his truck! Great to see these finally done, especially as this truck is where the project started.

This week they plan to complete the job including all of the Mk3 and Mk4 placards as well as the generic ones that are common for all of the trucks. And the crane ones (!)

When I get them all delivered, I will send everyone a pm and we will arrange delivery / payment.

Getting very close now, thanks again everyone for your patience.

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike,
           Sorry for my slow response, I have started a new job on a cattle station in the pilbara and have limited internet access.
If there is a set of F1 GS placards still available I would be very grateful for a set.
let me know how much they'll be and send me your bank details so I can sort payment out asap.
Cheers Mike.

Bundy.

Finally I am very happy to say that I have received the placards from the printer at last.

This has turned out to be a much bigger job than expected, but I think that the results are worth it.

Here are a few photos of the finished product...

F1 GS,

And,

Last one, the HIAB crane.

My daughter, the artist, thinks these are her best work, I am inclined to agree!

I do realise that this project has been a long time coming, but it is terrific to see them all done.

I have checked out the postage cost, and they will be sent out via registered mail once your payment comes in.

I did say that they would cost 180.00 per set, I have to confess that I forgot about GST, so they will actually cost $198.00 for the 11 placard set

Postage / packaging will be $10.00, so each set comes in at $208.00.

Tonight I will send out pm's to everyone who expressed an interest with our bank account details, and they will be sent out once payment arrives.

Currently I have the following people on the list,

MK 3     Mick Marsh
            Acco 4x4
            Diana
           
MK 4     FFR Man
            Dkg001

F1 GS   Raavin
            Bundy (I hadn't forgotten Drew)
            STDDIVER
            Dodgeguy42
            JohnP
            Andrew L

HIAB Crane  Raavin and STDDIVER

Is there anyone else that I have forgotten?  I also do have a couple of spare sets for all of the vehicles available if there is anyone else interested.

Cheers,

Mike.
