Default Flakpanzer Restoration

Some of you may know of the collection of German vehicles at the CFB Borden museum in Canada. A team of guys are now restoring the Flakpanzer located there!

The progress that they're making is being documented on Youtube.

Here's one of the videos:

And here's their Facebook page:

There are regular updates for the restoration project on the Youtube channel and the Facebook page.

I have a used magneto rear cap for them to use. I think theirs is missing. I haven't had much luck in getting a response out of the facebook group.
