Makes sense, thanks
They list it here as a 1991 colour
Doesn’t seem to get a good wrap as a colour to spray
Does look nice though
This web site lists the “hex code” for Orly Blue
Thanks Barry, moving to a modern VW colour now so all good
Even if you found a yank spec there prob wouldn't be a formula compatible with local tinters.
Still going for a metallic?
Yup, still metallic!, driving myself crazy with options
It’s a big decision.
Especially considering the mammoth effort you have done.
The tinters in original probably included
' Prussian blue'.
It really did have a crap purple cast if viewed along the panel or poor clear used.
Looked like a crap dusty solid.
Nice blue direct on tho.
Deep blue and violet give rich colours without such problem although violet sensitive to different light casts. ( Midday,evening, flouros).
Not a problem tho. Can be a good effect.
Choice of a modern formula a good choice.
Modern clear over base system works MUCH better.
Just ensure choice of a top of range clear from major company.
NOT a fast clear or an obscure label manufacturer.
Obviously 2 Pac.
Thanks for the advice Cbus
2K Baslac system is what I will be using
Basecoat 45 with 40-40 clear over top
Glasurit might be overkill
Don't know the system but seems fine.
I've been out of the game for a while now.
Unless you have used HVLP previously and happy with it stick to a normal gravity.
What gun do you have ?
I wouldn’t trust myself to spray a picket fence let alone my van ... the guy who has done the seams and rust work will be doing the re-spray.
Oops basecoat 35 not 45
Interior mostly primed, front/doors will be by end of week.
Brackets for the luggage rack were screwed on and then some Sikka panel adhesive applied to the base where they mount on the roof. The luggage rack was then fitted and held in place until the panel adhesive cured, then the screws were taken out and the luggage rack lifted off leaving the brackets nicely in place so that the holes could be drilled for the bolts that hold the brackets on.
The holes in the middle of the B-pillar are for the pop top latch which is resting near the drill. There are about four more holes to be drilled just fwd of the B-Pillar and these are used to hold the back of the luggage rack down.
Colour is locked in .... fingers crossed it works out !
Just a few more phots to round out the week, pretty much all in primer now
Brackets for Westy luggage rack all fitted up
Next week we're onto some high build and blocking down !
Why isn’t their am emoji that drools?
Time for some colour!
Super nice work,
You must be excited at the prospect of having paint on it soon?
