Just bookmarking this one at the auction.  :)
Re-cond. "51-777" It looks great.

Went for $15500 plus fees plus...

Doesn't have the pintle and the Hi Lift jack but thats fine.

(Somewhere, sometime, someone is scrapping a heap of used jacks).

No bonnet tools either but it does have the high snorkel! Looks like a great buy in that condition and for that price.
Does anyone know how many more RFSV's are to still be sold off? I am thinking there must be more than half sold but I have only really been following the sales since January last year. I think there was around 240 built but stand corrected on that number.
Regards Warrick.

Found this "in-service" Army PR pic of a Norforce unit somewhere ...before 2002.

I know of a few that were sold at auction in 2015 that had the jerry can covers in digicam, haven't seen one in green before.

Some of the 6x6's also came with DCPU jerry can covers, I got one as part of a job lot of jerry cans at a farm clearing sale, it has "Robco 10/11" and "HYG4184" written on it, so I am guessing the 6x6 cover at least is an official part, unfortunately it doesn't fit my RFSV Jerry holder because of the tie down.  I believe it was off a 6x6 infantry carrier according to its former owner, (he had sold the vehicle).

A lot of the Pilbara Regiment vehicle mods were done in-house.
Three Squadron had a number of members who were VM nuts and we had a very supportive command group.

The bikini roof cover was made in house as were all of the 'add ons'

The mirror cover started life as a DCPU trouser leg :)

What is the cam net that is wrapped around the bar work, is it just normal cam net cut into strips?

Did they also use windscreen covers like the Willy's jeeps had?, if so anyone have any photos

cheers

My RFSV came with cut-up cam net on the barwork well secured with hutchie cord - it was a bit of a bugger to get off :)

David, yes it is just net cut into strips. No supplied windscreen covers, we just used a piece of canvas over the top. Remember that when patrolling, the screen was usually folded down.
