Hey how are things, long time lurker first time poster.
Just got myself a 92 carravelle that i have a few jobs to do on and was considering a new paint job as there are quiet a few spots that need to be resprayed. So after seeing a few nato green paint jobs was thinking of a battleship grey one. seeing as it would be matt I thought it might not be too awful to do myself. What do y'all think.

don't worry about what we think on here you do what you want to do.

if you do it in grey don't forget the penant number on the side!

Might I suggest T4

I sprayed my old van battleship grey and it looked great, it was gloss though :ILU:

Did my mk1 caddy in grey primer and it looked spot on... until someone nicked it and used it for a number of ram raids in the local town :eek:

Welcome to the forum anyway and post us some pics when the vans painted T:

I was going to do this - but can't find satin grey anywhere.........

Primer is porous, so won't work........ :(

nice one lads, reckon t'would pretty cool alright. Like the sound of the T4 on the side. Thats an awful way to see a caddy go though.
