    Another vote for hammerite. Did my whole trailer, huge improvement. Couple years ago had floor done, brakes relined, people can't believe how old it is.

    I used Land rover paint to do mine, but iirc Rice used to paint their trailers to match Landy colours.

    Tractor paint, google it.

    I've found paints4trade very good, they'll advise on primer, etc.

    You could try and get a HVLP sprayer, only about 50 and give nice results with a bit of practice.

    Hand painting with a fine foam roller works well on flat panels but I can't how see how'll you get inside the "corrugations".

    Hi. I presume you have painted your trailer by now. My son and I have just renovated one. I sprayed this one using a chassis paint from TA paints. Self etch primer first, then undercoat and final top coat. I used an electric spray gun from Aldi. Very easy to use. The paint is a matt finish, but can be purchased in satin or gloss. 2.5 ltrs covered the trailer with a touch left for touching up scratches etc.
