Hello everyone. My name is Mike and last weekend I picked up my new toy - a 1973 Bedford CF Dormorbile Landcruiser. It's in reasonable working order with MOT, but requiring some TLC to bring it up to its full potential.


So far, I've driven around 200 miles in her and loved every second. There have been a few electrical gremlins, some of which I have already sorted out and a few I'm still trying to identify. The plan is to use it for a couple of months, then spend some time over the winter making improvements ready for next year.

Hi Mike and welcome to the club. :thumb:

CF wiring is, er, interesting even without switchgear suffering from age and wear, never mind what previous owners have altered or added ... :)
