A client of mine has asked if I can paint a mural onto the side of their van.

I'm new here! I've just purchased a 1998 T4 with the aspirations of converting it. I'm so excited to get started and I think the first thing on my list is the paint job... the van was originally red but a previous owner has taken it upon themselves to spray paint the exterior in a...

I having a nightmare trying to find the paint code of my van. I’m told that usually it’s under the pocket that’s to the right of the drivers seat but unfortunately it’s not there.

I'm getting my van artistically painted this month but I'm looking for recommendations for people who can do a Top Coat or Laquer to the whole van to protect it. So far when I have asked bodyshops to quote they are put off by doing the whole thing and only seem to want to do 1 panel.
Can anyone recommend a reliable paintshop/ body repairer in the Ipswich area?

Also should I finish with a lacquer...
Hi guys I'm an airbrush artist from the West Midlands specialising in bespoke designs for the automotive trade. Just here to introduce myself let me know what you think of my work. Looking to expand into VW's.
Have decided I am going to spend the winter upgrading the interior of my T4 ready for next year.
I have had a chat with the guy from SPD campers and he sells Plain MDF units for about £200 or laminated ones for £395. He seems like a nice bloke and very approachable. I was wondering if...
I have a tambour door in the usual place in our van. I'm doing the conversion at the mo.
The door is currently silver which doesn't go with the overall scheme of the van. I'd like to spray it. Has anyone gone down this road before or any paint experts that can make some suggestions of what to...
I've been in indo for the last 8 months, which is great... however my lwb T4 was left to sit outside for that entire time. Whilst i got Indo perfection the poor girl got a british winter. I'm back and want to make her beautiful again.
I ran her through the car wash today to see...
