We were talking of my van with a friend during a car show and he told me he know a good painter. He called him and I trailered my van to his shop last week. I was thinking about finishing it myself, but I need an easier project to learn painting than a whole vehicle.
I had to fabricate some body dollies to move it.
So, I just have to wait to come back from the painter, and decide which color I want it :knockout:

Yes, it does take a lot of space, equipment and money to get things done right.
I am sure you will be relieved to see it done and back home again.

I sure will be.
I'm waiting for the painter to give me a quote. I'm expecting something around 5.000€. He was pleasantly surprised of the quality of the prep work and was expecting more work to do on it.
But, man, it is hard to find a color to paint it! It is originally VW pastel white. Not a bad color, but not very fun...
