Hello and welcome to the first in a series of blogs from a very good customer of ours. Allan has been dealing with us for a long time and builds replica American police vehicles to an insanely high standard. We'll be showcasing his work in a series 'The Sarge's Blog'. So without any further preamble I'll hand it over to Allan. Enjoy! -
Welcome to the Sarge's Blog.
I've been asked to share my wisdom and experience with the followers of Stanley R Harris Ltd whom I've been a customer for over 20 years. Yes they're still taking my money!

Lots of products up on the site this month, Here's a summary for those that don't use our Facebook page.
Hella Mining: Mostly work lights with a power socket normally found on heavy plant vehicles and a padlockable battery master switch. The LED worklights are on a whole other level in terms of brightness comapred to the run of the mill stuff plus they are as tough as old boots thanks to the IP6K9K ratings. We may have found something other than cockroaches that'll survive a nuclear war.
Also from Hella was a small expansion on our range of driving..
Hello again and welcome back to the Sarge's Blog.
So today I'll show you the blank canvas and talk a little bit about wiring.
My car did see service in Texas so fitting the equipment on should not be an issue. I would however need to establish if the equipment I propo..
Hello troops and welcome back to 'The Sarge's Blog'!

The website expansion continued this month with some new products lines as well as additions to existing ones.
We added some new Peterson lamps in the form of rear LED combination trailer lamps and LED worklights.
The air fittings were expanded to include air brake specifc SIRIT fittings. These are permanent single use brass fittings which are heavy duty and meant to last. Far more reliable than the re-usable type. They have a modular design for solid T's or swivel assemblies.
Most of the work was behind the scenes in September but we have ..

Though we often drive by them daily, only a few take the time to appreciate the work of HGV drivers. They help keep our economy moving forward by delivering goods to factories, commercial businesses, and stores. That;'s why HGV driving jobs require drivers with more than a clean driving record. Often transporting goods across large distances for major corporations, HGV drivers must be disciplined and professional. And it's vital that they have a few more qualites which we will share in this article.
Driving is one of those privileges most people can admit to looking forward to from a young age. As teeneagers we anticipate getting behind the wheel of a car. We see ourselves finally free to explore beyond our homes and familiar places. We value the liberation that a driver’s license signifies. Driving has become a right of passage into adulthood. It is also the source of livelihood for taxi drivers, bus conductors and HGV drivers all over the world.
Whether you enjoy driving as a disconnection or to get from point A to point B, you you can hardly deny the liberat..
Have you ever heard about Murphy’s Law? Well if you haven’t, you have probably experienced it first hand – it states that if something can go wrong, it will go wrong, and usually at the worst time possible. This is what created a saying: “better safe than sorry”, and this is especially important when it comes to your safety, especially in traffic.
