Yes done with rollers. It is a little textured but it smooths off very easily with 800 wet and dry.

I was going full on rat but it's the wife's car and she warm't keen. Going to play around with a few different paint schemes and see where we end up.

The swage line down the sides has been bare metalled and allowed to rust so that'll appear through the primer soon.

Meet 'Bernhardt' - after 30 years of wanting, I have a campervan! Somehow justified by the 18 month old son and heir, we're finally planning various van-related jaunts including Mayhem, the TdF (first three stages), a VW van rally and a few bike polo tournaments, natch...

Looking sweet. Nice to see one tastefully done, minimal mods and clean.

Stupid rare!! Then you add the fact It's a RHD british registered car, LS model (1803cc) and a few styling changes, full service history and not a single rust patch anywhere!

Yes, stupid rare.

I'm a happy chappy. :D :D :D


Shame the bonnet doesn't fit..

:wink:
