Yup Barra, they'd be what am after - and cushions/covers enough to get a pattern/shape etc.
As you say getting them down here is the thing.
If you are willing to box em up I am of course happy to pay post/courier.
Many thanks for going to the trouble to dig em out and take pix so far!
Andrew the grateful.

Australian "Perentie " 110 & 6x6 Vehicles / Spring Cleaning
« Last post by mac101 on March 02, 2021, 02:33:37 AM »
As part of my spring cleaning, I want to remove the side baskets, rear tyre carrier and Jerry can holder from my Perentie.  I plan to clean up rust and refresh the paint.

I wanted to ask other RFSV owners if captive nuts or bolts were used to mount this equipment.

Thank you,
Mac

I checked all the photos in-service and have nothing indicating a use for it when the tailgate is loaded up.


When the tailgate is loaded up the tail lights are not easily seen (understatement). So, as a guess, maybe something like rudimentary rear lights for compliance?

That makes sense.

Thank you Ross,

Hey Andrew,

I think I may have at least one seat back + original rubber cushion + fabric (Vinyl) as a pattern for your issue. I will have a look tomorrow & take a photo of the offending items. You can have them but I am located in Kilcoy, about 1 1/2 hours N of Brisbane, and the logistics of getting them down to you may be tricky.

Interesting pist Mac,

I have a demilled KY-57 kit for my Series 3 FFR. Never found the correct battery box but have everything else.

I remember an Army open day at Karrakatta years ago when I mentioned I had a full encryption setup the Ares Sigs Sgt nearly had kittens ! (They were still in service then)

Cheers

Phill


Hi Phill,
I just had a quick look on epay and there is a KY-57 battery box for sale ($20).  It looks like the seller ships internationally. 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/13931-Battery-Box-Cover-PN-0N241845-Z-AIJ-E1-BA-590U-KY-57-Good-Used-Condition/124286487446?hash=item1cf00d4b96:g:UPkAAOSwgN1fE19A

If you like, I can purchase and mail it to you.

I'd be interested in seeing your radio encryption setup.  Mine is not standard but I've included a photo.  It includes a URC-200 radio, KY-57, connection cable, handset, KYK-13 (demilled encryption key fill device).   The KYK-13 is still in service and is used with field phones, GPS devices.

I had just removed the tool hardware from the hood so I could treat the rust and refresh the paint.

Thanks,
Mac
