I realize there hasn't been a post in this thread for 2 years... but that's kind of how I roll. I thought I remembered seeing the number in here, but I can't find it now. I'm getting ready to do a similar paint job with some Aervoe paint, but when you go to their site they have two different colors for OD Semi Gloss. Do you remember which one you used?

http://www.aervoe.com/productcart/pc...duct=4#details

The color chart is pretty much useless for these too. Maybe it will work on your monitors but they look black on mine.

Yours turned out great. Thanks for your help!

Thanks, it has been taking a good beating and still holding strong, no fading, and I actually just washed the Jeep after probably over a year without any washing The paint still looks excellent!

EDIT: 24087 (997A Semi Gloss OD)

The color I used is the Aervoe 987A - 34087.
Right on, thanks. I'm excited to get it painted up now. You need to post up some new stuff for your rig by the way!

Take it easy.

Let the paint cure about 15 minutes.

Back to the rig, I repeated the process starting from the front to the back, and rear of the Jeep , and then front to the rear on the other side. The paint cures pretty fast, so I was taking a few beer brakes and starting with second and third coats on the same order I did before. Do the wetsanding process before the last coat, clean, and shoot the last one.
I'm sure it was said somewhere in here, but I'm not seeing it. How long are you guys going between wet sanding? How long do you let the paint cure before you wet sand?

Thanks.

CT, thanks man, I think we are all bad influences for each other, hehe

For teh OD, I am trying to remember, I think I did about 4 hours for wet sanidng. With the Aervoe paiting I do not actually think that is necessary. I do not think I shot any clearcoat over the OD green, just over the hammered finish paint.

So is that hammered gray on the YJ? Do you have any closer shots or some of it out in the sun?

This is painted with good 'ol Rustolium gloss black enamel!

Turned out OK, and it's really just a base but of $20 worth of paint it aint bad!

Great thread. I'm trying to figure out a color for my 1947 CJ-2a. I'd like to do something military-ish kind of like a wannabe M38

I couldn't find Aervoe anywhere in town, so I went to the website, did some digging and called them up. They were super helpful and even mailed me a couple of free cans of paint (full spray cans - free shipping even) so I could try it out before buying a few cases of a color I didn't like.

http://www.aervoe.com/paints_coating...age-Paint.html

Since there seems to be some discrepancies on the web as to what the different colors look like, I settled on trying 997A (24087) and 987A (34087)., but I think they sent me a 997B/24084 instead of the 997A. I don't see 997B listed on their website anywhere, although they are both called "OD semi gloss"

So here's what it looks like, sprayed in haste, two coats each on an old air cleaner housing. Sometimes I get a little excited, I probably should have knocked the rust off before I sprayed... but anyway.



Details: (which are what I had asked for, but not what I got)


The darker color is too dark (it almost looks black in person) the light one is too light/khaki and too flat. It's so flat it almost looks 'dusty'. I was looking for something in between, kind of like this mirror arm laying across the top. Ideally I would like it to have a little more 'color' more of an old green olive color than the mirror arm shown which is almost just a plain flat green.



I'd really like to find this color:


I'm guessing that the color I'm looking for is 997A/24087?

Thoughts or suggestions?

Steel Soldiers has a good thread on all the different military colors. Also, check out Gillespie paints.

http://www.armyjeepparts.com/order_p...stocked_colors

Looks like you may be looking at AJPWWII. You can get the Gillespie paint in rattle cans also.

Good luck.

Just a little graphitti tech for you guys
Excellent advice!!, any way guys someone there with a kind of "Flat green" color palette??

I'm considering a paint job for my YJ, ghreen allready but needs some body work.

Thanks and have a nice day.
