February 4, 2016: Let There Be Paint!


Seven years and four months after getting the van it’s been repainted. Originally I had considered other colours but in the course of restoring I found some original colour on the body, and I think those colours look pretty good, so that’s what we went with. It’s a two-part paint system. There’s a couple layers of primer then there’s three costs of colour and three cots of clear. Next we’ll colour sand it all with something like 2500 grit and wax it all. But the doors and front grill are next. After all that I look forward to rapidly assembling all the bits that are taking up space in the shop.

It's looking super! Here's one image, not exactly your truck, but certainly in the same spirit! http://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/man-loading-bread-into-4x-canadian-bakeries-ltd-delivery-van
