    Perentie Qs

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a relatively new member - I joined recently as I'm on the hunt for a Land Rover. Nice to meet you all

    Unsure yet which one I may end up with, as I'm considering either a Series (preferably a 109, perhaps a Stage 1 V8), or a Perentie... but could also be swayed toward a Range Rover classic if its a Manual..

    Anyhow, I digress, my questions here relate to the Perentie.

    I know some may consider this to be sacrilege, however if I was to get a Perentie, I would like to repaint it - whilst I like the ex-military equipment, it will be my only car and I'm not very keen on the idea of driving around the city in Auscam.

    I understand that the Perentie uses a PUP type paint with a specific type of hardener, and that the dust from sanding it is a known carcinogenic.
    Question is this - Is there still a risk if I was to use a scotch pad to only 'scuff' it rather than sand it? This is simply to key it up to enable paint to stick better when applied over the top?

    Has anyone here done this before? I was thinking of simply using a roller - after seeing videos on youtube I was surprised by how effective this was, and by the quality of the result (YouTube)
    Also keeping in mind the nature of the vehicle - a flawless result is not required...

    Next question for a Perentie: how much would a functioning PTO winch sell for? I've looked at two vehicles so far, one with and one without - I'm tending towards the one with it because it is in better overall condition - but I don't actually require the winch, so would likely sell it to raise funds for other maintenance and improvements etc.
    What figure should i use in my budget?

    Many thanks in advance.

    keeping it wet while you work prevents the inhalation issues..
    then you need the wet work gloves to stop it getting on your skin
    then you need to control it so the spill doesnt get into the environment
    then you need to dispose of it in a legitimate and safe manner.

    and when you've done all four then you'll be ok while handling the stuff.

    *Like any industrial types of paint the dust from sanding isnt a good thing to breathe in, but keep in mind water based paints are actually worse as the fine dust particles absorb readily through the lung walls. So as others have suggested, sanding wet and use a dust mask will be fine. If you smoke and/or drink you are at a far greater risk.

    *I had pondered repainting mine in a dessert sand colour like the British military, I think that would be a cool colour. Although you will likely get used to driving a camo coloured Perentie and I find it a great daily driver as other drivers tend to give it a wide birth.

    *They are a iconic vehicle and the last Australian designed and built Land Rover.

    *The winch you should really sell to me really cheap and I will be ever soooo greatful.

    Haha, I will keep you in mind.

    Unfortunately the one with the winch sold to someone else, so it's back to the drawing board for the timebeing.

    Should have tried snapping up one of the ones from the Minto auction which ended yesterday - nervous about bidding and buying sight-unseen though.
