Painting process of the bus

Here is one of the most important phase of the restoration which consist to apply the color on the bus.

The color setup applied is in accordance with the color code inticated on the M-Code plate:

SK692A - which means dark green bottom and light green above.

By looking at the original VW color chart of 1960, there was no specific reference related to those 2 color names. Then we have opted for something that could match that requirement and part of the 1960 color chart:

Dark green = Palm green = L312

Light green = seagull grey - L347

 

Here are the 1st pieces that have been painted:
