Default M41 Walker Bulldog restoration Australia

Hi all, we are currently doing a complete nut and bolt restoration on a Kiwi M41. Although we have 80% NOS parts, Iím keen to hear from anyone that may also have parts or an interest in these vehicles. Once completed it will be the only one running in Australia, there is only 2 in Oz! Please check out our restoration page

From your photos on the other thread am I right in assuming your M41 is ex NZ 30545? If so I can update my 'Disposal of NZ M41' list
