    I have a red T4 caravelle camper which has black paint between the side windows and a black strip over the top 4" of the bonnet. The same paint has been used over the fridge vents, and the black colour ties in with the other black plastics (grill, bumpers etc). What seems odd to me is that it...

    Hey guys, So after this winter and the salt grit on the roads I wanted to get my arches nice and clean and free from any surface rust which is creeping on, while I save up for a respray.
