Hi Bob

Will do sorry just been busy with the family.

With my ďspareĒ time I have these days I did manage to get a bunch of the parts reassembled. The transfer case lever, parking brake lever and the master cylinder mount. These will all be stored away waiting for their return to the frame once thatís ready.

The last photo is the clutch road with its clevis. It was a nice surprise to come across the KG#3 under all the grime.

Clutch and brake pedal assembly fully rebuilt. Three bushings replaced and everything cleaned up and repainted. One pedal still had its original rubber foot pad. Iíve got NOS ones but they have gone hard. Molding and casting supplies have been ordered to make some new ones.

Slow but steady. Rear hatch removed for cleanup. Interestingly there were shims behind the hinges.

The Humber Mk 4 and Panzer 3 we restored also had shims under the various hinges

Interesting. Some aspects of these vehicles are pretty crude, then they instal shims under hatch hinges.

Yesterdayís task in the few hours of shop time was spent getting this one part cleaned up and painted. The handle needed a bit of straightening and a small amount of welding done to fix up where the rod was cracking. One day the rest of the vehicle will look this good.

Lastly I picked up a needle gun. I needed something that would help remove the old layers of paint. It was proving very slow trying to sandblast off the postwar applied paint. I tried it out on the front hull and was quite pleased with how fast it was removing paint. This should definitely save time and materials when sandblasting.
