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.

    • Archie's Camping - August 2016 update
      By Val A · Posted
      There is a new version of Archie's camping available to download now. This time more sites have been deleted and even more new ones added. There has been an emphasis on finding sites in what was the old Yugoslavia so anyone heading in that direction will find lots of useful information.
      Download it here: Archie's Camping August 2016 For a few reasons it hasn't been possible, yet, to announce the new App which has been planned for Windows 10 - but there may be more news soon. Keep sending in information if you find anything that needs to be corrected, or any new sites which aren't in the database.
      Please feel free to share this information on any other camping/caravanning/motorhome/motorcycling forums or on Facebook, or anywhere else that you think it might be useful.
