    I will be painting it like this, it's never been done before apparently. I don't particularly want a military looking vehicle.

    Stalwart MK2 Road Registered with HI AB £12,750 plus vat (tanks-alot.co.uk)
    So yesterday was probably the most exciting day of my life! Even more exciting than the day I collected Cedric from Finland believe it or not. I put down a deposit and am now the proud owner of GVO 282J a Mk2 Alvis Stalwart. I have always wanted one of these and now I have one! It has the crane too which according to Nick at Tank's a Lot where I have purchased it from, only 100 Stolly's out of approx 1400 total production had the crane. It also crucially is road registered so I will be able to drive it to work at least once haha. Number fans will notice that like Cedric (VOD 686J) it has a palindrome of 282 and is also like Cedric 50 years old and on a J plate.
    I have two months to pay the balance and collect it, I will need to buy another truck to transport it with so I will have at least three trucks as you do.

    Isn't depreciation a wonderful thing lol.

    indeed! I am very thankful to them and everyone who has helped with REV over the last couple years  
    hopefully its all straight forward and there are no nasty surprises hiding in REV! 
    (I do feel a little bad for leaving Dolly behind, but hopefully if nothing else, with REV out of the way, hopefully more FoD resources can be focused on getting Dolly road worthy as well )
    indeed it is! I wonder if she has been papped by anyone along the way!
     
     
     
     
    and I have just been informed that @adam1db has received REV safe and sound  now the recommissioning can start hopefully!

    Invacar a long way from home! (and once more many thanks to @st185cs for taking her up to Adam's for me!)

    Poor REV has been gagged bound, thrown in on the back of a van and kidnapped by the RAC! (I hope when the tape is peeled off it does not strip the paint/enamel from the number plate LOL)
    promising indeed!
    Hah you wish! LOL  
    well we also have the nuns

    just need Kittens now!
     
     
    but for real, @st185cs and @adam1db have very kindly worked together to get REV road worthy for me  
     
    @st185cs is taking her up to @adam1db's place for some fettling to get her road worthy at long last, some very good fettling hopefully seeing just how well adam and his people have sorted out GTW614N GPF282N KPC538P VJN960S and KPL139P  
    for this I am forever thankful!
    and I am very relived to finally see REV getting some proper love at long last!
    as I have been feeling really bad for how she has been sitting on grass for the past 2 years while I fail to get her road worthy!

    500tops reacted to NorfolkNWeigh in Specially Adapted Cars   
    A few years ago there were stories about cars used for transporting diamonds throughout Europe. The reason was something like you could buy diamonds in London one day , take them to Amsterdam ,Paris or  Moscow the next day and make a fortune. It came to light when one of the modified cars appeared on eBay with 600,000 miles on it. 
    The seller had a fleet of specially modified Golf R32s, with strong boxes welded to the rear floor pan, armoured glasss and run flats. Don’t know if it’s still a thing or what they use now, Golf Rs would make sense.

    Rusty here but is it better on the other side?

    NOPE

    is the engine complete?

    Sure, if you count the bits in the boot.

    At least the interior is nice

    With all the cylinder head parts cleaned and camshafts polished, I could begin the therapeutic process of building the cylinder head.
