Bedford QLT restoration 82RB41

Recommended Posts

I have been using all the information that Mike Starmer has done on british army colours & disruptive camouflage of 1936-1945 to decided. 

According to my key card my vehicle is from contract V4914 and it chassis is 12449.

this suggests that my vehicle was built in 1942

I know in may 1942 that there was a shortage of material to produce green paint

so i have decided to psint the vehicle S.c.c no 2 brown

i have already spray the chassis and axle with an under coat.

I cant remember where i read it but I believe this brown was referred to as milky chocolate.

I used the find that Richard  Farrant made on the inside of a vehicle panel of the colour s.c.c no2 brown.

i purchased a supply of the colour Richard had made by RR services.

Still cheering you on. The time it takes matters less than the end result and from what you have done so far, it will be a credit to you and another oldie saved for the future. Good luck with the rest of the restoration.

Steve.
