The tube between the two was just a flat bit of steel, I might have a couple of spare ones, will check, the two rear horizontal bars where for the SLR's to sit on, the horizontal bars were generally clamped to the rear bow, with two spring clips welded onto each horizontal bar for the SLR.

I see what you mean Justin,

Here is a 161 recce flt vehicle in Vietnam (113 854 (courtesy facebook)), I can see the flat bars.


So did they all have the horizontal bars originally or was it a unit mod?

The RPS has the same part numbers for these for both the GS vehicles and the workshops, so possibly done by the workshops themselves I guess.

Pm on the way!

Cheers,

Mike.

The horizontal SLR mounts would have been a unit mod I would think, I haven't seen any official paperwork on them but would be happy to be proved wrong, they where not fitted to every workshop.

Thanks for that, they are not in the RPS either.

Off topic just a bit, can anyone work out what the yellow stencil says on the 161 recce flt photo?

I think it says No passengers permitted to ride in rear of this vehicle?

Morning Garry,

I hope to get them from Moss, the original manufacturer, still in business and making stuff in Australia!

I am speaking to them today, I will let you know how I go.

I have spoken to 2 different people so far, the person I need to speak to is a bit hard to track down....

Okay, just sorted out the Lashing hooks.

They come from Moss, the original manufacturer, part number HM1

Here is the photo from their website.



I spoke to Leanne, and they are 95c each plus postage.

Great to deal with an Australian manufacturer.

%0 years on, still making the same part!

Contact details please.

I'm after the larger ones. HM2 I think.
I have a packet of the HM1 lashing hooks somewhere. They're too small for the Perentie.

Mick,

Have a look at their website, Moss hardware. They are in Dandenong South, Victoria.

I spoke to Leanne, and she is posting them out.

Phone number is 03 8 792 0400.

Cheers,

Mike.

Are they triangular? I'm not at home to check but were they not straight along each side?

I know my Perentie ones are triangular,

Yes, triangular shape, as fitted to the workshop platform bodies.

To me it looks like: No passengers permitted to ride on tray of this vehicle

Dervish, I think you are right there.

Very hard to read, but I agree on tray looks good!

This is a lot of detail in that photo, the spot next to 113 854 is reserved for 113 324, this vehicle is a 1964 88 GS, and does not appear in the list of Vietnam ARNs on Remlr.

Next question, what does the sticker under the Fuel filler say?  :D

I have a few pics of them if that helps.

Thanks Paul,

Great photos, very helpful.

I am going to have a chat with Wilderness agencies about getting a front cab canvas made up.

Unless anyone has a good spare one out there?? :D

I'll update everyone when I find out cost, etc.

Cheers,

Mike.
