    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    This thread and the videos posted of this restoration have been quite epic .

    Sabot a question for you which I feel the forum members here and the website itself would be honored to know.

    Does your crew who are working on this restoration know that it has been a highlight with the collectors and historians here?
    The WRF would be proud to have played host from beginning to end of this tedious work that has been performed.

    This has been so very educational and edifying to say the least.

    Thanks again for sharing these vids and also preserving history in the manner you are performing.

    Best Regards Larry

    I know the tedious work with track links, final drives, return rollers can be very tiresome and boring to some.

    But, I love all the aspects of restoration work, just the simple little things are eye openers to us novices.

    Once when I went to the Tank Museum Bovington, they where taking off the exhaust covers from the mighty JagdTiger..

    I loved every second of it, I was in heaven.

    So when you work those long hours, there's people really appreciating your time and effort.

    People from all over the world.

    Thanks for the comments guys, the team's appreciative of them as well.

    We've started cutting out the fuel tanks with a plasma cutter: YouTube

    You should contact NatGeo or History channel etc. For sure they would be interested, after all they are supposed to only send historical important programs.

    Interestingly enough, the restoration's been on Discovery Channel twice for Daily Planet.
