Would be wild to see a whole paint job done with that!

you really need to look close at the stripes.
see if they are paint or decals.
Allot of conversion companies use decals.
some even used both.
Unfortunately if the stripes are painted they will have to be sanded down to bare metal to get them right.
A good heat gun will lift decal stripes.

Good luck with your project.......

yeah The stripes on my van were painted on and the body guy did not sand them all the down. Even now if you look real close in the right light you can still see where the stripes were.
Good luck on the rebuild!
(blue always looks good on vans)

yea wookee , the stripes are painted on , ive already smoothed out some of the edges .
Think Im just gonna stick with solid gold , might be easier to paint right now , and I havent done much to it lately , its been to hot here .
I think ive come up with a good name for my van ,what do you all think about " Hillbilly Express " or has that been used?

My brother bought some kind of paint a while back that comes as a powder. And one of the colors he got was a glow in the dark powder. We havnt got to use it yet but how cool would that be to have your paint job glow in the dark.

Riverratcustomz, there's another possibility for you; a while back someone posted a link to a video showing a fellow painting an entire van mural with UV fluorescent paints, which looked really cool - totally different view between daylight and UV light.

Many of those paint additives aren't ultraviolet stable though, so they won't last very long out in the open.
