Default Some Stuart Tank Driving Footage Corowa 2024

Hello All,

I have been following a tank restoration series in Australia and this video, accessed 19th of March 2024, represents the culmination of a lot of hard work by the owner, Graham - also known as the XAcoupeguy. Enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr88cvOfrX0

Kind regards
Lionel

Default Sound level

Hi Lionel

Thanks for the link. One aspect of the video is misleading the viewers. The loud exhaust noise those Stuart tanks made was way up in the decibels range. Maybe the recording equipment was limiting the sound levels on the video ?

Lionel,

I am glad you posted a link to the video's of "XAcoupeguy".....I also quite enjoy his vids and the progress on the Stuart. I like the choices he makes in his restoration and honesty when fabricating missing parts.
