I like the light blue with the dark blue roof. Would be great with dark blue signwriting.

You need to paint it light blue with white roof and maybe the belt line/front v in white

I like the Duck Egg Blue and its almost a match to the original colour scheme of the 50/60's vehicles we used .

Its a testament to leaving things as VW intended. Parked it up just over a year ago, stuck a booster pack on it and it fired up after about 5 turns and ticked over smoothly. Put some trade plates on it and took it up to the petrol station for a top up of fresh fuel and a bit of air in the tyres. It didn't miss a beat just a smoked a little at first. Didn't start again after fuel so me thinks the battery is knackered but all in all a success.
