Signalkelle - Lollipops

Post by custardbomb » Mon Sep 03, 2012 1:58 am

I've found the following listing on eBay.de http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/260698392510? ... 1423.l2649

I remember a while back Roland mentioned that the Kats ones should have a Red Centre, and this listing shows a 150mm and 200mm version, does anyone know what size was originally supplied and if this is the same one?

Thanks,

Roland,

Do you know if this was the correct one for the door storage location?

Nope, this is the new Bundeswehr one.

Yours should exactly look like this one:

Thanks Roland, I have one of these but the wooden handle didn't fit very well in to the metal bracket on the door card, and the fit seemed to indicate it wasnt the right one, which is why I questioned whether it was correct. Thanks again for your help.

Yep, the Kelle sits a bit tight in its brackets not to lose it, especially as it's fixed horizontally in your Bus.

Not sure tho', if you still got the correct handle bracket, canted metal and same colour as the disc bracket. It's likely to wobble over the years and sometimes has been replaced by e.g. a plastic clip like in case of the FüKW-TEL 80 shown above.

Thanks again Roland,

Yup, the bracket is still the original once, and its nice to know its meant to be that way!

You don't happen to know the colour of the paint used on the metalwork in the rear compartment for the armrest brackets etc do you?

This exceeds my knowledge, I'm afraid.

Is your metalwork in need of a respray?

Glad you mentioned that bracket. I thought it should be a straightened S (sort of, you know what i mean) in beige....but then i saw that pic and thought maybe i was wrong! I am needing to make a new one for Vicky as only the bottom bracket is in place.

And now i have the negative version to fit here, i want to install it! :D

Roland,

The metalwork is in pretty good shape to be fair, but being pedantic I want to plan repainting this in to my future schedule, but theres still some exterior work to undertake first.

If I can organise getting a spectrometer on it, I will see if I can post the paint code for it.

John, do you want accurate measurements of the one on my van for reference to make a matched copy?
