    The big Cheese recommended this top product ...

    Bilt Hamber Electrox, Unique Zinc-Rich Steel Coating Protection Aerosol 400ml

    ...in a thread titled "T4 Conversion" and others, where a few of the forums paint elites offer some simple tips, gems of wisdom and product recommendations.

    Hi Tango and a warm welcome!

    Wow, what an incredible looking van and with the best engine too........

    Looks like a cracking project you have their. Bet you’re Uber excited. Whereabouts are you in the world?

    Have I mentioned you’ve got your hands on an excellent engine there?

    I would, I'd also recommend epoxy mastic as it is fantastic

    Bilt Hamber gets the nod for pure convenience of a rattle can - epoxy mastic takes a bit more planning as you have to mix up and use what you've mixed. But it's very good stuff.


    Oh and welcome bud - good to see another member from the one and only true 'shire' not that discount shire that S49 keeps harping on about.

    It's actually pretty thick paint over the VW white as far as I can tell. Unfortunately the clear lacquer is badly peeling in places and with the amount of bodywork I'm going to have to do I can see a wrap or a colour change happening... So it won't look like the Brittany Ferries flagship any more
