    Question Paint Help

    I have a white 1988 vanagon and looking to paint the exterior (but not the pop up top) - Is there a special brand of paint I should be looking for? Will I be banished from this site if I chose to paint it.... a deep wine color? (my husband is actually horrified at that thought so I may have to compromise). My mechanic is suggesting that I paint a white stripe on the side to 'tie it together' with the white inside. If you saw my mechanic, that comment would have floored you too. Anyone done this? Any lessons learned on what NOT to do?
    thanks so much

    Vanagons are unique and so are the owners. I say damn the torpedos....full speed ahead....do what makes ya happy. There is nothing like a satisfied Vanagon driver.

    Nicely said; made sure to tell my husband. Inherited the van from best friend who died from breast cancer. She LOVED red! Is there a certain type of paint I should look out for? I am familiar w paint wheels for houses- anything similar for vehicles?
