Fixing the rear deck

Post by Dennis Jones » Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:19 pm

I order to fix the rear deck down without using the 6 screws I have fiited a bracket to one of the stretcher bars and threaded the spacer for the vent. I can get at the wing nut to fix it by opening the 2 rear hatches and it hold it really firmly. Means I can fill the 6 screw holes now.

Hi Dennis
That was a clever idea for your deck fixing and I like your flasher ithe dark vidio.
Look forward to seeing it in your gun.
Cheers
Phil

Hi,
Mine runs without the rear deck bolted down.The weight alone is enough to keep it inplace.

Hi David,

I was thinking not to bother with fixing it but I have had the turret on the Panzer nearly fall off after a rough traverse of some logs so it was a bit of belt and braces I guess and I couldn't be doing with undoing 6 screws and also the look of it as well.
