    They are from Andy's CUCV site. Way cool site. They even have a Camo Pattern page. I thought you guys would like to see them since there has been so much talk about Camo Blazers lately. Here is the link...

    How do you paint the camo and make it look half way decent? Do or did you use spray cans?

    I just used flat white, black and grey(rattle cans). I do have a minor in art but... its really simple you dont even need a template, just go for it.

    *tips

    dont be too close when you spray &amp; be patient and not rush it.

    I used spray cans when I did mine... oh geez I think I broke about every rule... I didn't even wash my truck! My friend and wiped it down with a wet rag as we went along.... You might wanna do a better job then me! [​IMG] It's really not that hard to do... just keep the can upright as to not get any air mixing in and the making it splatter. Make sure you wipe off the paint of the nozzle thingy so it doesn't splatter... go light and layer it on. If you sit there and spray a spot for a few seconds it will run which looks like crud... If you haven't ever really spray painted anything go practice a bit. I really had to go back and fix mine because by the time I was done I realize when I started I messed up... oh buy sandable primer. Cheap stuff sucks, but the medium works ok... you don't need to buy the best unless you feel you want too [​IMG]

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    Spray cans will definitely work. You can get some very decent results. For the resto freaks, here is a link you can use for dead-on results...
