    You have found the holy grail of paints, Etch primer, Plastic primer and high build all in one can!


    I always thought those three things were mutually exclusive, why have I been buying three different primers for all these years.



    Actually, I buy five different primers, dunno why they didn't add 'weld through primer' and 'epoxy mastic primer' to that list on the can.


    It does look good though, be intrigued to see how well it survives.


    What did you paint the interior door handles with?

    Haha, I was a bit skeptical. But it built nicely on spraying, and i tried scratching a bit off and it seemed to have bonded to the plastic very well!

    The handles were a few layers of this white high-build-etch-super-primer, flatted back and then a couple of coats of paint that the shop coded from the side of the van with their scanning machine.

    Colour matched paint wasn't too bad at about 5 a can. But the etch primer wasn't cheap at about 12 a can. Still, 1 can did two coats on 1 door card - so 24 for a decent finish matt black on both doors doesnt sound too bad.

    So, from my other oil pressure issue thread I ended up finding out that my coolant system wasn't pressurising.

    Turns out that there was no pressure release valve in the cap! (black bit in the picture below) so the overflow was always open to the coolant in the expansion tank.

    New tank, new cap, a few coolant flushes and the coolant system is good as new!

    It seems to be a lot quieter and drives nicer now the coolant system is pressurised.... Weird.

    Is there any mechanical reason for this? Maybe now the water pump has pressure to push against?
