Hey...I know you from the NAXJA deal, anyhow Billavista, has the link...I think it's Rapco, just do a search at this site about olive drab paint and viola. I've seen Krylon at Walmart also, but the site that Bill gave was cheaper by the case. Goodluck, Chark,NAXJA lifer. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Home Depot has the Kraylon stuff , it has a Jeep on the can. Check for the stuff in the sporting goods areas in Wal-Mart for the Duck Blind paint, got a friend (Mike) with a TJ painted with it, looks killer.


here it is, it's the dull one <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Damn, it takes some nuts to spray-paint a new vehicle like that. I figured I'd be the only one crazy enough to do that. I likes it.

WALMART....the stuff works pretty good...the only thing is that it seems to be slighly different color from can to can....is this common with rattle can OD green?

Blatant, it's the Duck Blind paint. I'll send him an email and see if he can get the actual color code for you. But, look for Duck Blind paint in Olive Drab...that's the paint he used, shouldn't have a problem.

I have a 43 MB and a 42 GPW (both G503's) I used the WWII OD lusterless which is correct for early WWII, it is a little bit lighter than the pictured TJ, but once it weathers and gets grease on it it looks awesome, the semi-gloss would be correct for later war 44' on, and then some of the staff cars and parade vehicles used a OD gloss, all of the later M-series stuff (korea, vietnam, ect) has a much more forest green hue to it. Most later paint is either semi-gloss or gloss. The restoration crowd rallies around Gilespie (sp) paints these days as they are made from the stock color chips and by the same company...

Final note: stencils should be flat white in an US Army setting, Navy used a light flat blue and WWII Seabees (AKA Marines) used flat yellow (vehicles were a forest green not OD) I have marking and unit info if anyone has interest...

Yeah, the Rapco site is pretty cool, but I wish they showed actual color samples.

Regardless, I really like that TJ color. I think I'm going to buy that paint shown and have it matched at a local auto paint shop, so I can spray it rather than rattle can.

Wonder how this would look if he completed the military look and gave it stars/numbers?
