It depends ...

Main considerations:

Panel material - steel, alloy, GRP (glass fibre).

Condition of panels - corrosion of steel, weathering of alloy, surface crazing of GRP.

Condition of existing paint - flaking, peeling, pitting etc. requiring a binding coat

Application method - brush, roller, spray.

Working conditions - indoors or out.

Hi,
The coachwork seems to be of a plastic type a bit like caravan material, would be painting outdoors using a sponge roller.

Thanks,
Steve

Is your CF an Autosleeper coachbuilt or similar?

Either post/attach a photo or have a look through Brochures - Special Body Manufacturers and also the Gallery if need be. :)
