Paint almost finished!

Going to finish up the paint in a little bit. I finished most of it Friday but didn't have one of the colors I needed, but now I do!
As you may be able to see, the yellow part needs to be the perry winkle blue (actually called Peek-a-boo Blue) so I just need to spray that today, and some finishing touches. Plus the hatch needs to be finished as well.

Its funny because the other day as I was getting ready to go out and work on the paint- somebody drove by and I heard them say "hippy van". LOL guess its going to be a "hippy van" no matter what I do.


  1. I just had to write to you! 'Referred to your blog through vandwellers--gotta love those folks. Anyway...

    Hubby and I are proud owners of a 71 Westy, for little over two months now. : ) I will follow your blog and would love for you to follow mine as well? You can follow the 'Writing & Wanderlust' link from my Author Website at

    We are only just beginning our restoration of Peniki (my name is Penny, hubby is Nicolas...Nico for short, our daughter is Nixi). Together...we are Peniki; a nickname our family gave us. Either way, I love what you've done with your van. And...I wanted to say--The Hippie Van thing is something that hubby and I get ALL the time. lol

    Happy and Safe Travels to You! Hope to hear from you soon.
