Both of these are nice. Looking forward to seeing it painted.

I thought so. It's timeless in a way.

Where do you chaps get your paint from using old Mk1 paint codes? The paint shops up here system doesn't go back far enough to use early Vw paint codes.

Yea but te Volkswagen paint code means nothing to them as there system doesn't have Vw colours that old. Where did you get the paint for your Rocco from?

LA5Y or LB5Y

Always thought they were the classiest looks. Other than that red or white.
