The broken gauge makes me roll my eyes and shake my head. When I got my S788 shelter, it had been "demil'ed" by someone carefully punching the glass on all four gauges on the generator panel inside. I have never figured that requirement out, if it is one. Maybe someone just has a thing about...
I know I have more CUCV pictures in my files somewhere, but these two show the way the USAF would have marked the vehicle. It hasn't changed much over the years.
The door markings for your CUCV would be applied in a similar manner as on the '69 Chevy. Tactical vehicles usually have the "For...
According to the military Route Recon manual, the rule of thumb for bridge plates is 80% of the vehicle weight loaded, if the 'proper' number is not known.
The actual bridge plate numbers in the manuals are calculated by some esoteric formula that I think may involve waving an intoxicated newt...
I've used Rapco paint for about 20 years, and will continue to do so. It has held up very well over time.
It does have something of a sheen when first applied, but that fades to flat in a week or two after application.
The M931 military 5th wheel will mate to a civilian trailer, but as Simp stated above, it is unnecessarily tall for a civilian application unless you actually need the military two-way tilt feature for serious rough terrain hauling.
Pretty unlikely in most scenarios for most of us, so it ends...
John, I know you meant to type B-25. ;)
Sorry the plane got hurt, but she is fairly intact. Depends on how much the airframe got torqued to see if she will be able to fly again.
Best news is all aboard survived with minor injuries.
The dilemma over flying the old birds - letting people see...
They are standard on many US military vehicles, though not usually CUCVs except Marine ones, as mentioned above.
Here is one on the back of an M37 that shows how the tools are arranged. they are held in place by straps.
Straps are easily found from many sellers, including at least a couple...
My first experience with an A-10 entailed low flying, and was during a BnFx (Battalion Field Exercise) on Fort Hood. We Marines had flown in via C-130 from Camp Pendleton to play with the Army.
As a machine gunner, I was dug in in a fighting position just below the military crest of a hill...
Since you asked, from my perspective I'd encourage restoring it as a military trailer.
The supply of M416s is finite, and large numbers are already converted beyond recognition, thus lost to the current and future MV collector community.
That said, it is yours and what you do with it is...
This is another competition where I struggled to pick just one. All have their merits, all deserved to be voted for, none were easily dismissable.
One is far enough ahead to have the race in the bag, so I finally cast a vote among those in competition for second place.
Well done all!
We've used a couple of MKT's at events for many years, one was Mkcoen's, the other is jeepJeep's (but lives at my place). "We" being LoneStar-MVPA, our local Central Texas truck club.
Morning chow is usually breakfast tacos (eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes rolled in flour tortillas).
