Anyone with an older van will be familiar with the twin perils of rust and of dull, faded paintwork. Until now, I always thought that the only way to repaint a vehicle and get a decent (smooth, gloss) finish was to respray it.
Today, however, I came across this page, which provides a detailed description of how to repaint your van using Rustoleum paint and get a smooth, shiny finish. It is a little labour intensive but is a much cheaper, more practical and less anti-social option than spraying – most of us don’t have a suitable area in which to respray an entire van.
The cost of the Rustoleum method is very low and no expensive equipment is required – just paint, some rollers, wet and dry paper and a healthy measure of elbow grease!
If your van is in need of a makeover and you are interested in doing it yourself, then check out this guide.
