These folk (Peter Baxter, Gregor McKenzie & Ian McKenzie) Trade under many names C.U.V, Shropshire Gunbus and Mountain and Safari. They also put private adds on ebay from time to time.

Hours can't be right as the truck would have had to averaged 85 kmph while in use, and is more likely being a K to have stood ideling for a while.

Yes the slightly lower of the top two is what they call the 'control' fill until oil comes out this. Remember take the fill plug out first then control last drain, in case any are stuck!!

Cab heater

There has been a lot posted about the standard Eberspacher petrol cab heater. I think to sum up: They are 30+ years old and if not working properly can be dangerous and cause a fire. They are not worth repairing. However if in good working order, used while truck is stationary and with someone in at...

Mine has similar surface corrosion (very slight) less than a year after repainting. Not sure about the paint being IRR but it was proper military stuff. I have sprayed the area with light oil until I can sort it properly.[/i]

Pinzgauer America

Wow I had never seen the Pinzgauer America! Did any of these vehicles ever get built? Disk brakes! Were these from the later TD? No side rubbing rail, but wheel arch extensions and fat tyres! The inside also looks more luxury than even euro civvi pinz. That front grill is unique too. Now my pinz is ...

Wow I must be really lucky and have a quiet truck, I can chat with my passenger at most any speed on road and off-road I can sneak up on people without them hearing!

Mine 'smokes' at least as much as that. I was very worried as it idled away before its emissions test filling the garage with smoke... turns out its mostly steam on a cold day and passed its emissions with flying colours!

Playing in the puddles

Had a lot of rain here in Scotland, had an hour spare this afternoon for fun, nothing too dramatic, infact a Transit van got through the water here, problem wasn't so much the depth but the flow!

The "Mantis" Bonnet out version is I think based on the Pinzgauer rather than the Pinzgauer II, it has the same track. I will upload pictures and info on Pinzgauer (not Pinzgauer II) when I have time later today.
