    A really interesting thread and what an interesting job to be restoring tanks etc, i'd love a job like that!....

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...

    Amazing! This is all being done from your own pocket? Maybe some corporate sponsorship should be chased now that you're on the home run?

    looking good pete, i see pirtek have finally come through with the correct hoses ! what's next ? pressure test the rads then fit the gearbox
    i don't want to put any pressure on you but how about a xmas drive round the yard in the old girl, i might even get you a card if you can pull it off

    I emphasize I am but a mere greasy mortal helping to assemble this Cromwell. its Ricks project. The hoses were a nightmare, on numerous occasions they sent the wrong ones even after sending them back and telling them what we wanted, and they still got it wrong. Both rads have been pressure tested and are ok. One man is now on with the wiring (electrics are completely out of my league). I'll stick to bolting bits back...I swore I'd never get under another vehicle when I did cars having a crushed vertebrae and here I am under a blinking tank, but I'm like Ian, if its got tracks I love it....

    nice one ian, good to hear you've got a bit of job security, that must be a load off your mind, just try not to get fragged before you can pick up that fat pay cheque and don't worry about being in iraq and missing out on the restorations, like i said to pete there's plenty more old tanks at the yard

    all the best
