FFR Bonnet Tools
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:20:15 AM »
Hi All,

As per the below picture - I bought some pioneer tools over the weekend. My plan is (when the weather picks up) to paint the handles (probably black) and the axe head (green).

Question though - what goes on the two triangular brackets on the rear of the bonnet? I have a friend that served (driving FFRs) and he can't remember. I have had a look at pictures of FFRs but I haven't been able to spot anything on there? Any ideas?

handles normally just timber (but need weathering) dull off the heads with a bit of OD and they'll look the part

Yeah the brackets for lowering the windscreen, on all vehicles, FFRs wouldn't have lowered the windscreen normally

cheers

Thanks guys.... Yes the tools look very tidy because they are brand spanking new!

Thanks for the answer on the brackets.  :D
