chassis paint, so when you roll over, it's the same, which ever way you is up.

Spray it with plasticote enamel (from B&Q) gives a nice hard wearing finish.

If its painted black then it will absorb the suns rays, if its painted with acrylic paint then it will probably blister and crack with the heat.
I now we dont live in africa but when its as sunny as its been the last couple of weeks then you would be insane (imo) to paint the roof black.
Unless you want to griddle a few eggs and bacon on it.
