    What kind of camo you planning to do? I would suggest to do something cool, but with camo colors. Everybody seems to have camo'd a truck once upon a time, but something unique is memorable.

    I followed the MIL-Pattern, but modified the tailgate section as it looked a little wierd.

    I made my old c-10 john deere green with yellow trim (rattle can of course).... a john deere camo would definitely turn some heads :bow: ....................... But what I'm thinking of doing is some flat army type colors... Where is the link to the camo pics again?
    thanks,
    James

    A really slick way to do awesome camo if you suck at art like me would be to get a slide project or some other projector (computer type?) and project the camo pattern on and trace!

    If you wanted to be excruciatingly high speed you could try tiger stripe camo. I've been thinking about doing tiger stripes in 3-color desert, but living on an Army post you get some funny looks for painting a truck camo ("Dude, don't you see enough of that at work all day?"). Of course, you get some funny looks anyway driving around in an M1008 that looks completely stock except for the lift and 44s.
    One of my friends (pre-Army) painted his pickup camo, and we used a computer presentation projector to shoot the pattern on the side of the truck. The computer version was especially cool because we could resize and adjust the position of the pattern to line up exactly the way he wanted it. Outlined with chalk, masked, sprayed. Turned out pretty well. If you want to be original, I have the instruction pamphlets for painting military camo patterns for the CUCVs (1008 & 1009) on PDF somewhere. Let me know if they'd be helpful.

    Tiger stripe would be awesome. Esp. if you did it on the small side. Let us know what you decide, and post up pics.
