Looking good. I would have gone less orange on the wheels myself.

Unfortunately the wheels did come out pretty orange... But I believe that this color is close to the original one. The body color, however, faded over time. Which means that the color contrast between the body and the wheels is a little different now.
I don't want to repaint the truck though, I would like to keep it is original as possible.

Maybe I will repaint the color of the wheels if somebody can provide me a good suggestion for a color code!

Think you'll have to get some paint specially mixed to match. But it will be worth it.

A bit of brake dust and/ or mud will even it out...

Leave it in the sun for a year and it'll pale up nicely

Max, I'm going to have my sankey tub galvanized this spring. If you would like to redip your roof rack get back in touch. Doug

Are you going to Overland Expo this year...It is slated to be the biggest meeting of camel trophy vehicles and drivers ever in the US..possibly the world.. I believe camel trophy vehicles get special admission...there are reportedly some driving over from Poland..I will be driving mine there starting a couple of days before the starting date..a couple of other people are driving convoy with me...

Shayne, the overland Expo sounds really interesting and I wish I could make it with the camel. But I will probably be in Belgium during that time period. And I also wish it was a little closer to Virginia haha.

But I will definitely try to make it to the MAR this year!

The paint code for Sandglow is LRC361, any auto paint shop should be able to mix it for you. Probably won't match your faded original paint though. You can also get spray cans from Tower Paint.

Very cool to see a Camel vehicle being looked after. Not many projects like this around!

If you want to retain the original faded paint I would think your best bet is to take the vehicle (or a detachable part) to a paint store that can color match the faded paint and mix a batch or spray can for you. It won't fade at the same rate but the old paint is probably done fading and the new paint should be more resistant to the sun so it should look pretty good for a while

Please keep teasing us with more photos of your awesome ride!!
