I've had a look at that marino yellow and saw a pic of a Westy in it, with white bumpers as well. Very nice and as you say, a good classic colour. Might have to tread carefully though. As Tallulah says, it looks remarkably orange.

Just noticed your 'Wheels rolling May 19th'
Why not pick the Kombi up early and come to the Dazdub Doo that week end Laughing

Would be great to see you and your Kombi

But seriously, if you could pick up your Kombi say a week early then why not attend a 'free event' for Brazi Bays?

Well, girls now with their mother so I'm off to Danbury today. Got a small matter of paint to sort out. Fingers crossed, they might let me have a sneak peak of my van. I've no idea. Here's hoping.

Here's Max with Oly, a '76 that I helped a mate buy a few years ago. Oly is Marino Yellow a fab classic colour.

He was needing a bit of a polish - I've had a word....

It is a great colour, but then I am biased as it's SOOOOO close to Tallulah's colour.

As announced in the BraziBanter last night we're thinking of officially converting to "yellow" in light of this new evidence.

7 metres I think. We've also got a 1m ground stake to erect it although we now know that we can attach it to our bike rack if the ground is too hard for the stake - as demonstrated at VolksWorld.

I'm going to stick my neck out now.... I believe Tallulah is YELLOW!

This was Oly straight out of the container and looking a bit dull.

Mmm, very interesting (in the style of Rowan and Martins laugh-in).
Had a chap in court once, swore blind he stopped when the lights changed to brown, waited for yellow, and only carried on when the lights changed to blue! (true story) lol!

Tim - in a certain light and at the right angle maybe Laughing
What we really need though is the bright Yellow as in the link below Wink

A 'Zingy Yellow' as Scooby calls it would fit the bill nicely

For as split second I was thinking, wow,what a great van at the top of that pic - then I realised it was Tallulah!

We all know that both of these are vans are 'orange' even if the official name of the colour is Marino Yellow, so for the purposes of creating a rainbow at numerous events we will gladly be considered either.

For now, lets just say that Tallulah is Yellange Basketball

Well, back from Danbury's and all sorted colour wise. Had great fun trying to track down the right colour and code, and got involved in a fair bit of searching through colour charts and using the internet, but got there in the end. "She" gets sprayed tomorrow, yippee!

Sorry Scoobie, not zingy citrus yellow. As you will have gathered from the various posts above, I'm going for, or should that be my girls are going for the old classic VW colour of Chromegelb, also known as Marinogelb. Some might argue it's orange and I would find it difficult to argue otherwise except for the fact the name clearly states "yellow". So it's a yellow van. End of.

One interesting point in all of this was the fact that there seems to be a degree of confusion over whether Marino and Chrome yellow are the same. (this was the extensive internet searching bit) I'm still not 100% convinced that a definitive answer has been found but enough paint source sites indicate they were, and VW colour charts don't show Marino but do show Chrome. Also, of the two I couldn't see any difference in colour. So in the end I took comfort from the paint chart below:



Either way, I think it will look brill. Added bonus is I've saved on not having metallic paint. So of course I'm now spending that on a Honda generator, for those camping events without hookup, to keep the leisure battery topped up.

I'm getting so excited..... cheers

Excellent!

Very interested to see your new Kombi lined up next to Tallulah for a colour comparison.

We chose our 'Yellange' colour because we liked it, not really thinking about original retro VW colours, and as it turns out it looks incredibly close to Marino/Chrome Yellow.

Our V5 states "orange/white" Rolling Eyes
