  1. We have finally taken delivery of our Leyland Hippo. Luckily for us, it doesn't require a lot of work to get it back on the road and in anticipation we want get the stock of paint together. Additionally, the rear wheels on ours is completely different to any other I've seen. Was this normal and okay or do we (at some stage) need to find a replacement set? I have included a photo of ours (just after delivery) and the paint scheme that we want to paint it in. Can someone share what the codes are please. Kind Regards Lawrence

  3. Hello Folks, I hope that someone can help me with some basic advice about repainting an RB44 which is presently in single colour desert paint. I'm thinking about re-painting the truck to restore it to how it originally was. It's pretty clear that under the desert sand colour the vehicle was originally drab green and matt black (just 2 colours? I can't be sure, there may be a third - unless it's just variability in the green that they used). You can actually see the outline of the patterns in the original 'camo' paint. Incidentally, I've only ever seen one other RB44 in anything but a single colour (green or sand) - so is this 'camo' version that I have unusual? Anyway, my specific questions are very basic: 1. Is there an actual definition of what comprises British Army green-based camouflage painting (how many colours are used, what colours are they,...)? 2. What paints do I use (what type of paint are they, where do I get them from...)? 3. What prep do I need to do to the existing paintwork (do I just lightly flat it down - it's already matt of course, or do I need some sort of priming...)? 4. I assume that I brush paint it (although the finish on the original green / black looks like it was sprayed) is that right? 5. Are there any guidelines for the camo patterns or the balance of each colour to include in the patterns, or is it all just rack of eye? 6. What else do I need to know??!! I seem to be an expert at asking numpty questions... Hope you don't mind! Cheers, Andrew.
  4. Hi any one tell me the best way to apply stencils to my jeep? Ive tried with card ones & sticky ones - aerosol paint & brushed on paint & always they seems to blur. The paint seems to seep around the stencil is there a knack to it?
  5. as the forum suggests i know this sounds stupid but Am looking at re spraying my jeep (m38a1) & have got a tin of matt paint from a reputable supplier. I've test sprayed it (2 coats) & although the colour is good, once dry the paint seems to mark very easily when lightly scratched & i this will be no good for the jeep am i doing something wrong? or is this just how it is? would this be avoided if applied with roller? would this be avoided if i used a satin finish ? any tips greatly appreciated
