Thanks Sean.
Going blue and black on the engine cover mate, blue on the other bits.
Basically, I’ll be copying how you did yours

Bit more progress made today. Got the parts colour coded and lacquered.
I haven’t lacquered the centre of the engine cover yet as I want to highlight the VW badge and TDI lettering. Image

Cheers Sean. First time I’ve really sprayed anything apart from the odd bracket or similar.
Can’t wait to see the bits fitted back on the van
