I really don't go for that camouflage. Plain desert yellow is perfectly acceptable in my book and shows off the lines of the vehicle.

After a pause due to delays at the upholsterer, the new roof is nearly finished and makes the car look very long !

The camouflage is very much a personal choice, he is first and foremost a "militarian" and not a "Lancia" person, so it was never an option not to add it.

Is there a hidden message in the camouflage being "a personal choice"? My reaction was that the camouflage is rather unfortunate.

As far as I can see the Aprilia Coloniale was not usually camouflaged, where it was camouflaged it wasn't in that pattern, and things that had that camouflage had a denser pattern of smaller lines. I have to say though that I too am a militarist and we are famous, or infamous, for bitching about each other's authenticity!

Frank, no hidden message at all, personally I like the plain desert yellow but I know that the owner wanted to camouflage and took inspiration (his phrase) from other vehicles.

As Koen says, it's only paint !

I am looking forward to seeing the car in the flesh once the world becomes a nicer place to live .....

I have to confess I made the "it's only paint" comment myself just the other day on the question of painting a Y10 tailgate something other than black.

As always it's the owner's choice and I also recognise that it's important that the owner has the car done the way that gives him satisfaction. It's still a smashing project and a great restoration.
