    Yep I like it,that is what I will do. So you said that cost $30 what kinda prep did you do cause it looks good. Is it blotchy? Did you prime it,sand it or anything else? Thanks.

    $3 a can at the surplus store. It layed out suprisingly smooth even with a few sprinkles while I was spraying it. I didn't notice any blotchiness. I just scuffed it with a scotchbrite pad and sprayed it. There is a few small spots that have flaked. Nothing I care about as I'll just touch it up. A light sanding and some primer would be better, but it's my budget beater so I didn't take the extra time and cost.

    For whatever reason, the link isn't working in my original post, but if you click on the link in Big94's reply, the page is there.

    The Blazer pics are at the bottom.

    Damn it Jim, I'm a doctor, not a HTML whiz!

    Great looking OD paint jobs :thumb: I'd love to do mine in OD as well. But the midnight blue door jambs etc would sort of kill the deal... anlong with the blue interior :doah:

    Some more

    Here's mine. Yes I need to trim, and no it wasn't me that mounted the highjack on the bumper (but it was me that bent it up pushing trucks around the farm).
