FAUX BMW R75/R71 (edit) build thread

Post by 1943Willysgpw » Mon May 20, 2019 6:43 am

I am attempting to turn a Ural into the closest thing I can to a BMW R75. I would like to know if anyone has the german sand (afrika korps) paint code? Thank you in advance.

I was only finding model paint until I stumbled onto a vehicle page showing the code. It is RAL 1002. Found a place that sells it. I will check with my local auto paint guy first.

Cut the front fender a little short. Repaired it and built a licence for the fender.

more photos: I have to apologize for the jump in time. I broke my phone and lost quite a few photos. Cloud did not capture all of them. Goes to show you that you should download pictures periodically.
