1 Ltr should do mate, will do the insides of panels as well.
Have you done a rear bumper that incorporates the number plate mounting?
If so I shall 'loose' the number plate recess in the left hand rear door, like MattBlack has done on his 8)

Ok then, once the paint gets to me I will make a start.
If anyone close by wants to come to my place and learn/practice to paint the panels for the van, (in an adult supervised environment), you are more than welcome.
It might give some of you that haven't had much chance to get involved a chance to 'do your bit' 8)

Once the paint gets to me I will let you know, you are welcome to come up to the yard where Makeover 2 was held and have a go. It will be over a weekend, Saturday or Sunday, whichever you prefer, tea will be provided :D
At least then you can say, "I did that bit".

Once I get the workshop clear for a weekend, you will all be welcome to come and have a go.
There are two rear doors, side loading door and bonnet to paint.

I will post up the weekend dates so you all know,
