Restoring British Munga 6

Recommended Posts

Im restoring a Munga 6.

The "Car-History" says, it is a british Munga and was used by the Royal Air Force in Berlin. You can see one of those Mungas in this video at 01:13 and 02:06.

 

 

 

The color of it is Royal Air Force Blue. Perhaps, anybody of you knows the color-code of it.

 

I already talked with "mogmaner" about some pictures, but perhaps anybody of you has got some too.

 

 

You can see my work at.

To get the car history i used the chassis number. It was a munga of the Royal Air Force, so i decided to restore it that way.

 

The beginning:

 

As u can see, very dirty and ?scruffy? !

The chassis is brought to our work place
