    ok, thanks. I may have to call my friend the cabenet maker for ideas, that may take a while as first we have to talk about some model A's and T's then 8n's and flatheads in general... you get the idea.

    I did mine when I first got the van and I love it. I even plastidipped the rear emblem on the back door and the wheels on my trailer..... Great stuff. Hope that you like it.

    We have hit a cold spell so I'm stuck waiting until it warms up enough to spray. :ddog

    I'm seriously considering doing the back doors on the Van as well... they have small little rust specs from all the rock chips (I drive on gravel roads a lot).

    I was going to do one panel at a time so you wouldn't notice.. then all of a sudden one day you'd realize our van changed colors and now looks like this:

    You know what color scheme it needs.

    I talked about doing a Partridge Family paint job on my EuroVan. It would have been much funnier if my kids had understood the joke, without having to Google search for photos...

    True, but does that mean you'd like an '80s-style La Vie Claire team color scheme?
