One thought on “The Lizard is back

  1. Hello Chad, my name’s Peter, I’m from Poland, and I’m restoring old pldvk Jesterka (Lizzard). I want to make a dessert camouflage like on your photos, and I’d like to make a coat like on the front of this vehicle. But the picture is too little to redraw it (i can’t see what there is exactly written) . Would you be so kind and tell mi how can I find what is on this coat? Or maybe you’ve got bigger picture? Or maybe what there’s written? Thank a lot for your attention. hope you can help me,
    Please see my collection on http://www.grupaslask.org/park_maszyn.html
    Regards,
    Peter.
