Many thanks KC, that is very kind of you to say.
As there are approx 5 or 6 remaining of the 100 or so produced, we thought it worth doing properly and as close to original specification as practical.
We have not retained the gas lighting
system, for example, although the LED inside the original gas mantle looks pretty near.
Still looking for another glass lamp shade as one of the two was missing.
Also missing the wheel spats ( covers ) so may have to sculpt 2 foam blanks, in order to manufacture the moulds.
Still it keeps me out of the pub.
A 1956 Vogue, which was restored in 2007 by Peter Jolley, has just recently been bought by the makers Willerby ( now in their 70th year in the caravan business ) to use as a centrepiece at their factory/ showroom and for exhibition at other events and shows.
