@egangsta, the pic is not clear enough to identify the real colour of the car, but as suren said, it looks like a taxicab!! How would two tone combos look?? Something like british racing green for the lower half and ivory/shell white for the top??

Lovely Landy, JayD. I'm all for BRG and ivory. Maybe you could paint the inner wheel rims ivory too.. ?
@Jayz: this thread is getting real interesting with your photoshop images !! I'll need similar advice from you when my fiat goes in for resto, brother.

A few days ago, I made some chops on the Landmaster. Didn't have time to go through the entire thread. Pic quality might be bad as I am running on a slow net connection.

Hope this helps.

Another Landy , another long wait for seeing the day light, when will the waiting end and the car hit limelight ? waiting in distress to see the progress.

where is the car being worked upon ?

Excellent choice Jaydev! I would go with either the nice green (Last post on the previous page) or the pastel blue on the beginning of this page.

Nice Landmaster JayD . Congratulations!!!

I would suggest you go with the dark non metallic green (should almost look like black from a distance). Just to give you an idea, do you remember the Ford Escort Anniversary Edition? It had this lovely shade that I have in mind but that was metallic. All the very best for your resto project. Will be watching this thread closely.

Could this be the light green color that you are looking out for?

Default Klr Landmaster

JayDev,
Today only i knew that you have bought your first'classic' car.Congratulations for buying this particular landmaster!!!!.
now a little history about this KLR car.
This car has been in Quilon for about 20years till abt 2 years ago one guy from Ernakulam bought it from a civil engineer who is based in QUILON for Rs.60000/- .Unfortunately this guy couldnt use this car for long.I had heard that his son was trying to get rid of this car in Ernakulam for some time now.He had even approached the former owners to enquire if they were interested in Repurchasing this car,but they were least responsive.
Actually i hear that engineer is now on the lookout for a good Landmaster!!

Hey jayD chetta! Congrats on your new acquisition!!

I find the current colour also good enough for a period look. Does it have gazel hubcaps fitted?

I'm sorry I'm not in a position to contribute in this regard (except maybe in comments! D) but hope your car comes out in its best!
