    New summer project! "Rosie"

    First pic - GS with Mortar fit (only ones to get triple Jerry can holder instead of winch). Second pic - radio body with ac unit on roof. This would probably interfere with the masts (if vehicle was 'radio' rather than REME repair van etc.,) so may have been a civi mod for camping in that...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Yeah, Les is a great guy. I've known him for many years... As far as the tan goes - pretty sure it's going to be authentic and in Bob Morrisons book - Land Rovers in the Gulf, there are no pics of any with the "triangle" or inverted chevron..... I think that came later (second Gulf war) and...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Seeing as no one got it..... That colour is known as Eau de Nil (translates from French as 'Water of the Nile'). This paint was used for rebuilt engines/transmissions. If the vehicle had it's original engine, it would be unpainted (block is aluminium) with gloss black plumbing/electrics etc...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Ha ha.. Yup, it's prety straight forward. Use the minority colour to 'break' up the corners, middle straight edges top to bottom and wheel arches. Plenty of examples around (on the interwebs), varous books and forums... They do look fantastic in BRG with complementary galv cappings but only...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Most being the operative word. Since they were all gassers (Rover 3.5 V8, they fell by the wayside when the fleet went all diesel. There was a rumour that they may have been retro fitted with Perkins but that too didn't happen. No, Malaysia trialed them but the Volvo won the contract. I tried...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    It's a small world - glad you found a gem. Hey Mike - don't know how I missed this thread!!! From the dropbox pics it seems that you have a pretty complete vehicle relative to it's military service - may have even seen service in the first Gulf War. The military registration 62 FL 06 will...
