Hey all-

I am in the process of giving my van a two tone paint job (well... three, if you count the stripe at the belt line). I am wondering where the paint was broken up on the interior of the doors and wheel wells on the stock vans? Does anyone have a picture? I am thinking to just continue the two tone scheme through the lip of the door where it would be visible when opening, but not on the entire interior panel. Iím also thinking I would keep the part of the wheel arch inside the van near the passenger or driver seats the stock white, rather than carry the new blue color into that area. If anyone has pics or info into how this was done stock, I would be very appreciative! (Though I may do my own thing anyways... Laughing )

VW painted the entire body one color, then masked off to apply the second color.
