So, I am tight and can't afford a full on respray as its loads.

I want the van a different colour. Can I do it myself?

I guess I would need to buy some sort of spray gun, electric one as I don't have an air compressor. Then I guess sand it all, spray, sand, spray, then at some point laqueur, then more spray, and sanding more laqueur etc.

Not after it being showroom like, but just lovely and nice....
Any tips????

Um, don't really have a budget TBH. Basically not a lot! Few hundred quid I guess.

I look at the spray guns, I reckon about £60 will buy one, which I can flog afterwards.

I am not after it looking like showroom condition, there are a few dents in the van anyway which I wouldn't be able to remove.

You need a big garage or shed to spray it in as if you attempt it outside you'll be fighting the wind no matter how light it is and you'll struggle to get it shiny, going by my mates last two efforts.

I heard of people getting really good shiny finishes at home using rollers and coach pain but never tryed it myself.

I've got a double garage to but mine if full of rusty beetle, it's amazing how much they expand when you take them apart. I think we need a bigger one so i gan take my golf to bits as well No
