At least the NATO paint means you'll never have to wash the vehicle and of course touching up scratches is easily done with a 3" brush, never again will you need to worry about a spray job .... lol !!

If you don't like the colour just buy a litre of synthetic alkyd white paint and brush it over.

Would all the exposed metal on the mirror not be an MOT failure/pull from police (not that are ever seen round this way) ?
May be of interest for those who want to lower their vans to see what sort of adjustable suspension has been fitted,but as no mention of what has been fitted I suspect a it's DIY bodge job .

Someone on here had their van in Nato green. He did it so he could park up in the woods and observe nature unobtrusively. Friend of mine has his bike and sidecar done in the same paint, very easy to maintain the finish but it does scratch easily Big Grin
So where does this bit go then ?

I think someone's got a bit mixed up with their modding styles , as you say Nato green is ideal for off road stuff but always  with raised suspension  .
The dropped to the floor suspension is to improve handling faster cornering  with  a fast powerful engine is it not ?
Not being rude but but (from postings on here) the 1.9 diesel isn't exactly a speed demon , a van with one of our 1.6 16v petrol engines would be fun to drive  I'd have thought ,not having the extra weight of the  second side door ,glass & heavy rear seats & all .

A lot of derogatory comments ! At the end of the day its probably someones pride and joy and done that way for a purpose.
Why all the nit-picking comments. If you don't like it , don't look at it. Before anyone asks, no, its not mine.

Doofer at one time in my life i would have been very happy with that old scrap van - and remember that its ideal for taking to a supermarket car park. I know a very wealthy retired guy who drives around in an old van and when asked why he says "the roads are a disgrace, people dont care anymore, and im fed up of coming back to my car to find more Asda rash on it, why the hell would anyone spend a load of money on a car to do that with it". You cant argue can you really?
