I spray painted the 2 front kick panels today to match the grey of Max's door cards:

Makes things feel even brighter upfront. Basketball

Can't wait to see it - and all other Kombi improvements!

Ashamed to admit but we haven't done anything with ours yet - apart from collecting it Wink so browsing through the forum I was admiring all sorts of things you guys have done with your vehicles.

Looking forward to seeing other vans and for inspiration (or as my husband said - to get depressed that ours looks so dull inside...)

Never mind - we will get there Very Happy

Wait until you see all of Max's new stuff .... all to be revealed at Volksworld.

He's looking mighty sharp now!

I'm not going to Volksworld so can I see the new stuff now Wink

The cards look great, did you just primer and paint, how did it take to the washerbottle flap?

Because the cards were already dark I just sprayed them with Halfords Surface Cleaner, thereby removing any grease. The colour I chose was just a regular aerosol - Ford Polar Grey, a non metallic colour. I put the panels on some clean sheeting out in the back yard and built up the layers over a couple of hours.

The washer bottle flap took the paint very well actually, despite being vinyl. I guess because it's flat, and again I doused it in surface cleaner, that helped the paint to adhere.

You can see Max's new bits on the evening of Sunday 25th, when I upload the photos from the show! Cool

Did you primer them before painting Tim? I'm going to do my kick panels and door cards as soon as it warms up a bit . . .

I think so Dee.  The crucial bit is the wipe over with Surface Cleaner first to remove any silicone etc.

I didn’t prime mine before painting but did use a surface cleaner. 3 years on and it still looks great.
