    Hello KC friends

    I am wanting to paint the bumpers on our 1975 Kombi Camper ‘Penny’.

    Any suggestions on exactly what white to paint them? What is the normal colour used? Paint name/code would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Nathan

    I would paint it the same colour white as your roof. I've been looking for the original white for a 72 kombi.:rolleyes:. Earlier bay kombis people have used cloud white L581

    I used Rust Guard Epoxy Enamel, a semi gloss white epoxy paint available at auto parts store in a aerosol.
    The epoxy cures to a rock hard finish, great for bumpers.

    I have had a recommendation to get them powder coated. More expensive than painting but a lot harder wearing. I believe it was around $200.

    I personally would go paint anyway.
    I initially went that way because my bumpers were unable to be taken to a file finish and i had to have them skimmed and painted.

    But they are wearing great nearly 5 years on. And i unfortunately did not see a pole at the supermarket when down at sawtell busstop. But with some panel beating and a skim it was an easy respray.

    I powder coated the front and rear bumper, towbar, bull bar and 5 x rims all at the same time and all now with matching colours

    Still looks great 4 years later
