Default English built 40mm Bofor trailer parts

Looking for assorted small (and not so small) parts for a Bofor trailer restoration including ground spikes and mountings, brake parts, axle locking pins, barrel support frame, side extension arms & support stands, parts for the electrics, etc, etc.

Russell

Here's the trailer that's going to be restored. It's in a sad state. Most of the box section frame has rusted out so is going to need to be completely replaced. Quite a few of the fittings that attach to the frame are missing so it pretty much a full re-build. I hope the picture attached (won't be hard to spot the novice if it hasn't)

Thanks Carlo.

It seems that there are quite a few of these trailers located in Australia and more importantly are in pretty good condition due to the dry climate. Will pm you.
