    My transit has just gone through a transformation and I'm pleased with the colour.
    If you want to take a look you see it going through the work stages on my facebook.

    I should have posted the pictures here but I couldn't work it out and haven't set up photobucket yet.

    It sure does stand out at first I thought you had had it wrapped but I see you said it was sprayed nice work big job as well.

    It was cheaper to spray it.
    A wrap was going to cost £2500 plus £1000 of bodywork repairs before.

    The bodyshop repaired and painted it for £1500

    I'm very pleased with the result.

    Wow I thought spraying it would have been dearer. I would imagine a spray job would be a better option anyway. Does look great.

    I couldn't really afford a fresh van, so decided to look at making mine look better. It was rusty and needed two wings, arches were replaced, sills were repaired, a number of dents (previous keeper) were filled and then painted any colour of my choice. All for £1500. There was no way I would go for white when I could be out there for all to see. So purple it was. A rebranding of paperwork, website and van.

    Now I need to have it signwritten.
