I can investigate the two diff paint co...

Re: Which white??? - Colour advice and opinions needed pleas

Cheers guys, looking like Lotus white's the most popular choice so far.

We did explore the 'beetle' white shades too - Atlas white only a shade off Lotus we found

Like the cream white though : )

How many spray cans is too many to get made up???

Mrs Indecisive

Re: Field of Dreams @ York

I was planning to go to VW Action. Field of Dreams is within walking distance from our house though and I think that it is important to support your local events if you don't want to lose them.

I'm a bit in love with Isla - she's gor...
