Hi ,well i decided to paint my van myself on a mega budget .
The van is a 19 vw t4 people carrier type van with dull white paint,it has had a good respray before I got it but now it has gone flat ,dull ,I do not know what type of paint is on it.
No rust apart from wheel arch rims which I have sorted.
I bought 5ltrs of satin black military style paint off ebay ,now I know tanks and jeeps ect dont have satin finishes but it is sold as military style
so I am guessing its not real tank paint.
Anyway its sold for brush or roller application the site says just scuff up the existing paint ,no need to prime just clean,scotchbrite and roller it on.
So I did.
First off I really cleaned the van then I flatted it off with sanding blocks and soapy water the grit was medium but I really dont know what grade -they were 3 for
