T4 Post Icon Paint peeling from Pop-Top roof - '98 Westy?


New member today, came across site while trying to do some research on my much loved T4 Westphalia pop-top..

Wondered if anyone could help/advise if possible? The paint / lacquer has been peeling off the elevating roof of my '98 Westphalia T4 for the best part of a year. May have been caused by a jet wash in the past, but not sure? I'd like to have re-spayed/sorted out, however while I'm at it I'm looking to have canvass tent replaced as original and looking a bit worn now.

Would anyone have any advise/experience, and maybe also any recommendations of a company who could help with this please?

Grateful on any advise or recommendations?

Hi, and welcome. VW busshop (peter Gunzl) will supply a new canvas - they're in Germany but ship. Fitting is a DIY job - I've just done mine-if you're handy. Respray should be simple for anyone used to spraying fibreglass.
