    Nothing like a new wiring harness to work. This harness came from Vintage wiring from Mayne. The little female power plug sockets (seen in the second and third photos) in this wiring harness were reproduced by Rob W. years ago. If enough people twist Rob's arm he may be able to justify another run of these hard to find sockets.

      I used a standard generic rear marker lamp for my restoration. The weasel marker lamp has its own unique base plate which I machined from an original and fitted to the marker lamp. Also Amphibious weasels have a marker lamp wire conduit riser which again I machined from a sample. I made a drawing to share.

        With my restoration I have had to import quite a bit of kit. Here are some examples. LAR tracks and parts from the USA plus a box of parts out of Europe. A complete floater from Duluth Michigan for some of the amphibious gear.

          It has taken me over 3 and 1/2 years to rebuild/repair my front float tank. The following series of photos best show the amount of work involved to get the tank back into shape.

                      Front Float tank continued Here I have cut access hand holes in the float tank parcel tray to give better access to the lower inaccessible areas of the tank.
