    Exclamation BEWARE restorers & owners, Military colour on private vehicles banned.

    DAWN.COM | National | Military colour on private vehicles banned

    "RAWALPINDI, May 16: The federal government has banned the spraying of military green colour on private cars as that can pose security hazard, it has been learnt.

    The inspectors-general of police of the four provinces and Islamabad as well as the excise and taxation officers have been directed to impound all such vehicles and submit a report by May 25.

    According to a source, the police have also been directed to impound all vehicles with military colour that had been either auctioned by the military or purchased by the owners from any other source.

    The source said the government would take strict action against DCOs and ETOs if any vehicle having military green colour was found in their jurisdictions after the May 25 deadline.

    A large-scale campaign by the police is likely to start against such vehicles."


    and since reading this in today's paper I'm in a fix. Can anyone tell me where to get the vinyl sheets to paste on the vehicles. I think I saw a Vigo done that way to protect the paint job on a Hingol trip.

    It specifies military green, so I presume we can go ahead with a 'khaki' :?

    AS an ordinary pakistani:-
    i think this order, of banning green military colour, might not be promoted in true spirit as there are other orders that still need to be implemented seriously. examples are " banning of TINTED WINDOWS " but nowaday every other car is having tinted windows although law enforcers are there but still this practise is continuing. furthermore only original number plates are allowed but still fancy number plates are being used.....i am talking about this khyber pakhtoonkhawa, as a native of this place.

    olive drab has prettymuch always been a banned colour in PK,.. even though our old SJ410 came in that colour from the dealership!

    this is another reason why my 182 was painted sahara beige instead.

    tints aren't a big an issue as what the army call "impostors"...

    i think ur mistaken
    only cars which don't have computerized no plates can have fancy no plates all cars which are having computerized no plates cannot use fancy no plates
    after sindh khyber pukhtooon khawa started computerized no plates for cars in early 1998 and cars which are regesterd in this period must have computerized no plate police is very strict about this
    and military color is another thing MP guys sorry to say are retarded my car is 2002 punjab started giving comp number plates in 2006 on a military check post one personal stopped me that my car number plate is FAKe common sence man its an older model than 2006
    my answer police will decide it ur not entitled to do that
    and i drove away!
    but banning color i say its good idea
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !

    That's a pale pink Landy....a Mutt in pink should be unique!!!

    @rasim

    Army is more concerned about the terrorists MISusing 'em and this has happened!!! Tinted windows campaign died down because the users are mostly big shots who either operate above or have good connections with the law whereas auctioned jeep users are average guys like you or me who can be taken to task.....exception being if you are related to the President !!!
