Peter's FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier Refurbishment
Tuesday, 11 March 2014 | AdrianR
Peter landed online early in 2013, tasked with a personal ambition to restore his acquisition of a British Army FV432 armoured personnel carrier, from the outset the rapport between the team and Peter was obvious. Arc Components Limited is well-versed with bespoke and custom solutions, most realise that after just a few visits. When walking through the products and categories it also soon becomes apparent that time-saving methods have been employed to cut down browsing time and speed up the choosing time, leaving more time for 'hands-on', it's sometimes referred to as a gift, that we built a Website "for engineers".
Peter started his refurbishment selections naturally with consumables and relevant tools first, moving on to core electrical products including fuse-gear, warning lights, switches, electrical cables, harnessing sleeves and cable clips, before working his way round to internal lighting and external lighting solutions for finishing touches.
A selection of the products used:
Peter has now fully restored the FV432 Carrier and shows it at meetings and venues in the south of England. Peter's now moving on this Spring and Summer to a refurbishment of the Alvis Stalwart British Army amphibious cargo truck, the team is looking forward to seeing Peter craft his art once again to bring history back to life. The FV620 affectionately named by service personnel as the 'Stolly' or 'Stally' entered service to the British Armed services in 1966. Below is a little taster of things to come, we will post some in-use images later and update the blog with a breakdown upon completion.
