Re: The Camel Panda!

Oh btw, those crappy bucket seats were not installed by me! I had smart Seicento sporting seats with the embroidered Camel Trophy logo in the head rests.
I hope they haven't molested the seat crossrails installing them!

Re: The Camel Panda!

Looks like those RB1 tyres have had it too.
The other chaps on here may agree with me saying don't get them again.
Use an original size tyre on those rims. You'll get much more road grip, life and arch/filler pipe clearance.

Congratulations for this beatiful Panda !!

I would like to know all about "her" modifies.

Engine, lift, wheels, and especially the transmission improvements.
In Italy we have some factories that produce these kits.

Re: The Camel Panda!

Welcome!

I know it's short notice and a fair trek, but not too late to come along to this:

https://www.fiatforum.com/panda-clas...september.html

It'd be a great introduction to all the lovely Panda people, but also to what these little cars can do!

Re: The Camel Panda!

Hi! thanks for the info so far.

The Drivers door is completely shot, as in it turns to dust when you touch.
Also part of the lower drivers door hinge as snapped so the door drops when you open it.

Luckily there is a body shop on my yard and the owner absolutely loves the panda and has offered to repair it for me. I was sure the door needed replacing but he is confident he can chop out the lower half of the door and rebuild it.

We do need to know what colour it is, when you say "Layland 'Sandglow 361'" is that the colour of the entire car? Is it not a standard RAL or BS colour?

Re: The Camel Panda!

Sandglow 361 is the paint code and was the colour of the Camel Trophy Defenders. It's an old British Leyland colour.

Thanks for the invite!

It is a bit to soon tho, Ive got a bit to do on the car before its road worthy like replacing some oil seals.

Also reversing it back into my yard after taking it out for the first time the gear linkage arm fell off, good job it didn't fall off while driving.
Looking under the car its missing a gear linkage bush!

Ok cool, i should have guessed that you wouldn't of settled for anything but the absolute official Camel Trophy colour, not just a close match

Do you you know what brand paint it is or where you got it from?

Ive found this: https://www.paintman.co.uk/shop/land-rover-sandglow/ seems like the only people who do it off the shelf.

Re: The Camel Panda!

The paint can be mixed by your local motor factors paint specialists.
Let me call the garage who sprayed it tomorrow and get you the brand and type, pal.
