Late last night ( Sunday) we decided to take this project up a notch.

The exterior is now finished and the doors completed.

The original intention was to just tidy up the van with an external respray.
The interior was to be brush painted i.e floors and rear load area.

But after seeing the van in its new paintfinish it was decided to respray the interior to give it that properly restored look.

Anything that can come into contact with overspray has to be covered when using 2 pack paint.

It is still wet when airborne and coats anything and everything in its path....I learnt this from experience.

The whole of the exterior of the van has to masked up, we do not want overspray on that new paint.!!!!

I have applied three good coats of high build primer filler to the interior, this will be finished off with the same 2 pack paint as the exterior.

I finished laying on the interior paint at around 5.00pm tonight.
With some heat in the workshop the paint was touch dry later in the evening.
At 9.30pm I de-masked the van to expose it new look.

Tomorrow evening I will fit the front windscreen and side glass.

I ordered a lot of replacement parts for the van at the start of the project, most of the rubber items were dry and perished.

Other re-useable items will be cleaned, painted as required and re-fitted.

G.f
