Some of you may have followed my RV story in chit chat.

Basically I have a 32' Moho that needs some uniqueness added.

I wanted to do it all flat black but that is just to much. So I have settled on a desert sand and flat black motif.

My question is. What paint to use. I don't think I want to use a real mil-spec carc paint but then again I am clueless and figured you guys can steer me in the best direction.

I found a Rust-oleum flat Khaki I like but of course it doesn't come in gallons.

So doing some net searching I found the Kyrlon brand but need to go find an Ace store and see if I like the color.

Here is my favorite rendition of what I am hoping for :smokin:

Just to be clear.

I am asking for recommendations on a brand of flat desert sand or Khaki in gallons.

Go to a parts store that sells paint. Tell them what color you want and them them you want it in a cheap acrylic ennamel. Its a one part paint that is tough and should be easy to work with. It is commonly used on tractors.

so you are saying that instead of getting specific advise from my friends here on Pirate4x4 who have first hand experiance with all sorts of brands and camo painting experiance I should go to auto-zone and rely on some 17 year old pimple face stonner for my paint tech ? ya thats great :laughing:

I Think you should stick with the flat black, that would look sick! Murder that fawker out!
Honestly that is what I wanted but I just don't think a huge murdered out flat black moho is gonna be that neat of a theme.

I am thinking more of a mad max goes to Iraq kinda look

No, go to a real parts store.

My place uses DuPont. Do you need me to go look up the code for you?

I'm using krylon to do the desert marpat on the rig, but it a grant total of like 40 square feet. Tractor supplys enamal is almost indestructible, and easy to spray but I don't know if they have your color. I also like ppg with their flattening agent. Its the best paint IMHO but its spendy.
