Just phoned the chaps I use a lot (Lillywhite's in Emsworth) but they said they couldn't fit something as big as a Sprinter in the oven. Vito LWB is about as big as they can fit in.

So cross them off your list of people to ring lol, sorry it wasn't positive!

I don't know if it's any good but I did hear that there is paint out now that you can brush on?

It sounds crazy but may be worth looking into depending on the value of the van, apparently it drys flat?

Oh ok, van is 2002 and only worth 2/3k but mechanically sound, previously sign written and can't buff it out, still looks sign written even though vinyl is now off. Will try find what that is then. Just want to tidy it up without spending a fortune.

Nauti, probably a stupid suggestion but how much does it cost to get it covered with new vinyl? Is it comparable to a complete spray?
