The only DVD I know of is the one mentioned in the wiki. I bought it when we painted our van (actually I think I downloaded it from Ralph)
1987 T25 AAZ RHD Syncro
1989 T25 MTDI RHD Syncro

Do you have to flatten down or get a key between each coat? Or can you paint direct on top?

I flatten between coats to ensure a better finish.
Why would the glass be anything other than half full?

Thanks for all the advice on in this tread, I have read them all. I have just finished painting my van in Ruby Red with a white top. I am very pleased with the result. 100 times better than the old, faded and scratched paintwork she had before, and all for less than £100. I started with the roof thinking that if I make a bad job no one will know. The first coat was terrible but by the time I started on the body I was confident and just went for it. Whilst she was standing in my drive a Wren built a nest under the front wheel arch. I now have to wait until the young leave the nest before I can show her off.

Re: Paint Your Wagon - with a roller! - fading Rustoleum

Post by andyvw »

Rustoleum is such a mimic for the original paint!
Avenue supplied my paint mixed to match the VW paint code.
It was certainly on the cream side of the faded exterior , but a great match to the colour in the shuts etc.
fast forward , some 5 years (possible more) and time for more extensive work. That Rustoleum mix has now faded probably to same extent as the original paint (though of course none of that exposed paint remains ).
With the front panels re done, it's sort of comforting to be driving again with different shades of panels. :rofl

Where are people buying Rustoleum from nowadays? when I bought my last lot it was in 2009 and was from combicolor.co.uk which doesnt seem to exist any more.
