    Anyone ever use Duplicolor vinyl paint?

    I used that stuff on a power wagon. What if you painted it at night? The heat is supposed to break this week in AZ but not sure about Texas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New toy - started YouTube channel for it - CVRT

    The guy that i bought this one from has another that just arrived in the states. It’s the command version with a more spacious crew area with the modernized Cummins diesel. It’s sitting in Vegas now. He’s doing $40k for that one. It looks to be a lot more complete and finished than the one I bought.

    Thanks all. So far so good. It’s running well and I’ve been working on it daily so far. Got the gas tank out last night. Meh all my photos orient weird, just tip your computer monitor over to the right ;)

    Thanks! I’ll keep posting videos. Let me know in the comments how I can make them better. I’m not exactly a YouTube expert :)

    New toy - started YouTube channel for it - CVRT

    After over a year of research, and saving and planning and checking in I have finally obtained a CVRT fv103 Spartan. I wanted one in good working order but not so good that I felt like I had to restore it exactly to original. Also I like to work on vehicles and if it was all done up already I’d...

    Looking for Recommended Transporters for Tracked APC

    Thanks USF and Everyone that responded via PM. I was blown away by how great people were. Being in the car and truck restoration hobby I’m used to vendors and service providers being too busy to care much of the time when you aren’t quite sure what you need. And at worst, we’ll some of the...

    Looking for Recommended Transporters for Tracked APC

    After a year of research I finally purchased a tracked APC (CVRT FV103 Spartan). Now I am looking for companies that will transport tanks across the US and have done so in the past. Any recommendations? Thanks Mike Specs: Pick up Las Vegas NV Delivery Amherst NH Battle Wt (10670 Kg) actual less...

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    So we had an unexpected “life event” that put a ding in my play money account which always seems to happen but it hasnt killed my bug to get one of these things. I found the guy you were referring to and from google map pics it looks like he still has them (his email didn’t work but I found a...

    Hi Coltman. I don’t travel a whole lot but if I find myself in PA I will certainly invite myself over to look at your cvrt ;) Wishing you an incident free import. Mike

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Thanks Thanks. You know, I stumbled onto your import thread a month ago and read the whole thing. Very informative. I’d be interested in hearing more about your acquaintance in Illinois! I was actually hoping to get a project but scared from your thread about the difficulties compounded by a...

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    There’s also a spartan down in in GA but for the price increase on domestic units I’m leaning towards importing. We will see though and who knows. Over my time frame there will probably be more that come up for sale here in the states and the price difference may narrow. Mike

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Thanks for the info. I found the 101 you mentioned. Looks pretty nice and I’d probably consider it but I’m after the apc variant. Thanks again Mike

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Thanks Phil! I was unaware of the show in weare. Spent the last hour looking over their website. That’s not far from me so I’ll put it on my calendar along with my annual visit to the Collings foundation in Stowe ma. I saw the scorpion you mentioned in their photos and I’ll dig a little deeper...

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Thanks Andrew. Always good to know who has spares. I’d probably be looking into the gas variant due to the larger availability of (and generally cheaper) parts despite the advantages of diesel. Also noticed the contractor for the road wheels and tracks still makes them new and even with bolt on...

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Hi yes sorry, figured they were more well known. I’m looking into the fv103 spartan specifically but any in that class will do as they are all variants of the same platform. Thanks Mike

    Brexit exports to the US

    Excuse my ignorance but financially I’m just getting to the point where I can seriously start discussions (and get approval ) from both my wallet and my wife for a CVRT. My window for purchase doesn’t open before summer and delivery before Jan 2020 would be inconvenient to my schedule. So that...

    Any CVRT owners near southern nh?

    Continuing my research into ownership of a CVRT but have yet to actually see one up close. I live near Nashua nh and thought I’d check around to see if there’s anyone within an hour or so, that I could spend a few hours with me to show me theirs. Thanks Mike
