    My 81 K20 had a coat of black sprayed over it before I bought it, but I want camo. What I need to know from those of you who have camoed your own truck, how did you do it? did you make stencils? Did you spraycan? I don't have a paint gun, I was just gonna use spraycans with those little plastic handles on them to do it... any tips/advice???

    I rolled on the base coat. It put a texture on it and increased the camo effect. Then I sprayed the rest of the pattern with a cans.

    I was looking for a pattern to go off of, but I found the NATO camo patterns the m1009 series with the 3 color camo job. It included paint #s and everything. Hopefully everything will turn out good now that I have a pattern to go off of. Will military green and brown go over top of a black truck without showing through?

    dude, thats the cool thing about camo, ya cant go wrong or mess up. i didnt even clean the rig i painted (my old k20). i used to paint vehicles in the military. you could, download vehicle paint schemes off the internet. trace them on a clear transpearencey, and the then use a projector to shine the pattern right on the vehicle. we used chaulk to stencil in the pattern in the military. ive advuced this in the past. take a trip to wal-mart or any other toy store, they sell stuff with cool camo pattern, especially on miniatures. good luck and i hope this helps. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
