    The white is called steel-white L82, blue seems the favourite, I think I might go down that route even though its not stock l

    Blue looks great, white looks a bit pony.
    Steel would look cool I reckon!

  6. The steel is the white.
    Colour coded i.e. Blue, looks pants to me. Trying too hard IMO

    I prefer the blue tho it might also make me think it's not quite finished yet. Could you have slighter darker shade of the blue to provide slight contrast? Van looks great :)

    Horses for courses.
    Steel (not white) would look good.

    I see what you mean, I may try it though, after all its just 4 clips a flatting and quick spray over if it ends up looking naff

    Not sure about the interior, wanted to get dove grey but for some reason its unobtainable, tried others that were close but they looked cold on the interior, so went rightly or wrongly with VW light grey right vintage, can change it its only paint but at the mo I quite like it, will look different in the light.

  12. I was just thinking how much I liked the grey, looks good to me! Blue badge got my vote too & it looks bang on, very jealous!
     
  13. All looks great! The pale grey inside is a bit brighter and more liveable I think.

    Just remember, that blue badge doesn't mean you can park anywhere you like :)

    I see what you did there!!!!!
    In the booth the grey has a green tinge, I have seen Light grey splits outside and they look greyer, they painted it grey from the factory as the Kombi was classed as a commercial hence the dove blue, I have seen all manner of OG grey cargo areas at shows, it would appear that it was anything in the gun!!! I will see how it looks on the hubcaps!

    Yea Baby!!!

    Looking for plates, liked the ones with the border but it would appear that mine is the Barn Door >56 one so the gap is too small, they did fit em on 56 model year into 57 so thats OK, wish I had known earlier as its probably worth more than a late one and it may have been worth swapping it, better than money in the bank I suppose, will have to weld it on!!
