Caravan Touch Up Paint

Question

Posted

I know that this is a long shot, but does anybody know what colour touch up I would need for my 1997 Lunar Solar 465, as there are a few little places I need to touch up.

Also do Lunar ever do Factory visits, or is it only open to Lunar Owner Club members

I have twice asked factories for aid in touch-up paint on older caravans and in both cases was sent a small sample and a UN number.

Worth asking Lunar yourself.....and about factory visit.......I was a Lunar Owners member one time and there was a visit arranged for a limited number of people but with all the problems that that new van had I decided I didn't want to know!!

I have had this problem too with gaining paint, I can't guarantee this but a lot of makers use FIAT 249 paint code. I know that Swift Group, Coachman and 'some' Lunars have this....our Geist was another Fiat code too....hope it helps.

Caravan colours are not usually just normal paint a lot are printed Etc, However as has been said a visit to your local auto car paint supplier ( eother take van or a painted part ) and through their colour samples they should be able to identify a matching colour and mix it, They can either fill an aerosol for you, or a small container of paint, ask for a drop of retarder thinners, for brush on touch up this will thin it a little for brushing and give you a bit of time to put it on neatly. Bare in mind paint does alter colour with age so T Cut whatever you are trying to match.

    • Pompeii, Sorrento and Rome
      By mattandkirsty · Posted
      We are planning a family trip to Pompeii, Sorrento and Rome next summer (2017) and wondered if anyone had any experience of sites in that region that they would otherwise recommend or warn against. Would be good to hear if anyone has visited any of these with car and caravan. We were thinking of the following: Camping Spartacus at Pompeii for 6 or 7 nights to see all the ruins (3 days) and VersuviusCamping Fortunata at Sorrento for 9 nights for Sorrento, positano, Amalfi, Capri etc..Camping Fabulous at Rome for 7 or 8 nights for visiting Rome (3 days) - (Possibly Camping Bracciano as an alternative)Thanks in advance for any site recommendations.

      Percentages always look better than actual figures however without a basline to work on a statemnt like 28% is totally meaninglsss and maesk the article sensational or to my way of thinking irrelavant.  Why do companies use eprcentages without offering a baseline?  Now if they said there were 1000 tyre related incidents previously but this has dropped by 28% then that has substance.
