I also tried to fix the ugly mirrors. One side is done. The other side is stuck, the bolts won’t come out and it is not possible to open that part of the door... So still trying to find a solution for that.


Some parts from Safari HP should arrive next week. When these arrive I will be able to pass state inspections and drive this truck around (legally). When I can do this, I can drive the truck to a paint shop so they can match the paint. Then I will be able to re paint the snorkel, and the rims.

Looks great! If your looking for consensus, I would love to see it repainted with the original sandglow. The VIN is your proof of originality. Good luck and keep it up!

I'd say it depends on what you want and prefer. If you want a restored vs un-restored look. There is something totally cool about the originality knowing its special place it has in LR history. Have you photoshop'd it too see what it would look like in original sandglow.

?????? The truck is sand glow. The paint and decals are all original. Having seen and driven this truck it is very original and un-retouched in any way. Max has only done things to stabilize its condition, like wax it so whats left of the original decals doesn't turn to dust. I have imported a handfull of CT trucks and this is unquestionably all original as specked out by RJR.

I meant the original sandglow in the sense of it not being faded out or having a lot of patina. Not doubting quality of the truck, or how you sold it. just answering the original question asked. Sometime it's easy to do with photoshop and you get a idea of the finished result and it helps make up you're mind quicker. One way or the other. Like I mentioned in my post it seems like a cool truck with a cool history.

I didn't sell it, just shipped it from Zebrugge and handled import for Max. The truck is the same color as the other CT trucks that have passed through my hands. I think its just Max's pictures that make it look washed out.

This project is going really slow at the moment.... the bad weather isn’t really encouraging me to work on this. And finals aren’t helping either...

I did however get the inspection sticker. So this Camel will now be proudly driven on the streets of Radford.

I was also able to fix the second mirror and fix the lower corner of the dashboard since somebody cut a big hole in that for speakers.


1 thing I learned about having a roof rack... birds love to sit on this and sh*t on the Camel.

That first picture reminded me, the ignition on your truck had a really different cylinder and key. Never seen one like it before or since.

Good to know... I was wondering several times whether or not those were the original keys, because they seem kind of weird for a car key.

Thanks for that information. I will keep that in mind just in case mine don’t last as long as expected.

I just decided to sandblast and paint mine since they were in a decent shape. I need to change something about the actual mirrors though... Yours seem a lot better.

I also installed the lights on the roof rack again. Since I passed the inspection I can add all the “fun stuff”.

I also received new buffers for the spare on the bonnet. This definitely needed to be replaced.

Finals and traveling kept me busy. But I finally got some work done again.

Repainted the snorkel and the pick ax. Tomorrow I am going to make sure I can put the sand ladders back up... but those brackets need some work. I’m also going to work on the shovel. Get that back nice and clean. Looks like I will be sandblasting all day...
