    Does anybody have the paint codes for the three colors they used to do this to the M1009's? I don't want to buy the original paint cause they want to sell 2 gallons for 90 bucks, and my boss at the body shop can get it for a whole lot cheaper.

    Yep, according to the story I got, my M1009 was in Kuwait. It was just one color - tan.

    The paint they used as CARC. Tough stuff. You hit tree and it'll damage the tree. Nasty stuff, too.

    Yea i know they used CARC thats what I got on it right now, but i was thinking of switching up the colors and using like a similar light tan and another darker one then like a brown, cause theres 2 more cucv's in town and i always get phonecalls from friends who think its me. Does anyone know a paint code for a tan similar to the one they used?

    I posted this not more than a week ago in a thread concerning CARC paint but here we go again its everything you could ever want to know about camo. www.olive-drab.com/od_mvg_camo_carc.php The only thing I have ever seen using three color desert are Marine helicopters but there are paint codes on this site so you can have the colors mixed by whoever

    Pattern, not color

    I saw the "official" pattern for GI camo somewhere on a cucv site, where you use an overhead projector to put the transparency on your rig, and spray away! Search cucv sites and you should find it quick.
    my $0.02.
