In Fourth Gear
Told you there’d be more! Want to respray my truck in sand colour. Think the correct colour name is limestone, which I’ve had before from Paragon Paints, but I thought it was more yellow than I remember. Americans call it sand colour. Is it the same colour for the wheels, or was that whiter than the sand?
 
Thanks for that. Added some images

That's a very nice point to start. I thought you had bought a complete intact vehicle!

I think the first job is to make a list, with the order you want to proceed.

Brakes and electrics whilst everything is accessible for sure.

You'll find the S2/2a parts book even more helpful, as it's illustrations are all parts blown apart, gives a good indication if how and where things fit.

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress! Maybe start a thread in the restoration section to document your progress?
 
That looks really good, but I think a word of caution is due...
Many people (a few on here) have bought projects or complete vehicles which the Previous Owner claims have been fully rebuilt to high standards, and then found multiple issues that need attention.

Im not saying that yours falls into this category, but my advise is to go through everything and check that its been done correctly (as far as is possible on a half-build vehicle).
With luck you will find nothing wrong, but its better to check now than find out something major needs attention during your first test drive!

That should keep you busy for many happy hours!
