  • Show me your van's faces!

    Ok an excuse for you all to post some pictures.

    My van has some old pitted chrome effect mirror covers fitted and i cant decide what do do with them....

    Remove them (probably messy and might mean replacing the mirrors afterwards anyway)
    Paint them Red to match the van
    Paint them Black to contrast (satin / gloss)
    Replace them with new chrome effect covers to match the sidebars

    would give photoshop a try but figured we've probably got every option covered on here.

    Being an old stick in the mud i like the standard black mirrors and textured black bumpers for that matter. But i'll pop a couple a photos of Molls blue bus up with colour coded bumpers and hot rod sparkle mirrors.

        Bin the covers and the chrome side bars, chrome went out in the 70s, no colour coding either as it ain't the 90s. OEM or OEM+ is where its at. A rattle can of satin black is your friend.

          cant remove the side bars, wife likes them!

          My initial leaning is to satin black to match the doorhandles.

                    Thanks for the pics so far, not sure sparkly blue will work for me

                    A set of wind deflectors is on my list and being dark they do seem to tie in nicely with darker mirrors, think I'll give the satin black spray a go, worst case i can take the covers off or repalce the mirrors completely if that buggers.

                      Satin black on a side bars too I reckon.

                      I also like my standard black bumpers and black mirrors. Lots of the T4's I see with painted bumpers have big scrape and/or paint flaking off, and it looks bad.

                          Rest assured the sparkle dont work for me. The van would look better with just flat blue,black bumpers and mirrors.

                            Just do what you want.It’s your van after all.That’s what makes them individual.

                              With you on that one DD textured black bumpers are much less scratch sensative to my mind.
