Baywindow westy including the roof, just costing up the respray :D

I'm going to have a bash myself, but never bought enough paint to cover a van :crazy:

I asked last year to do the bus bumpers, I went to two paint shops and prices ranged from £27=£36 a litre :eek:

I thought it was quite expensive

cheers Steve

CHOWTCH!! Thats a bit steep, but I suppose it depends on how much I need, I reckon about 5 litres but then I could be wrong

What about all the stuff that's on the 'bay? There's a store called 'Fascinating Finishes' or something that do all sorts of paint, at about £35 for 5 litres. :)

"The Bay" is many different colours at the moment, I cannot afford to get all the bodywork sorted this year, as my priority is the engine and brake set up. So I want a cheap matt black respray that will see it all in one colour and lkast until next autumn/winter when I can afford to get all the bodywork done proper :D

Just finished respraying my bus.
I used TETROSYL matt black (not satin) which cost £14 a litre.
In the end i used about 10 litres, which got 3 coats on the bus, bumpers, etc.
Make sure its top coat though. :D
Oh yeah out of tins not aerosols, mixed with thinners but im sure you knew that anyway :hangloose

I think the tetrosyl is even cheaper if you buy it in 5 litre tins :D

That tetrosyl looks a good bet. You can get it off ebay, just search for 'tetrosyl matt black'. :)
