    Paint code for \"Military Olive Drab\"? - PPG, DuPont....Rustoleum?

    Curious if anyone knows the actual paint code for the Olive Drab color, and if it's available through normal paint suppliers like PPG or DuPont.

    If it's available in rattlecans, that might be nice to know too.... Now that I hear there are going to be camera crews in Moab for BlazerBash, I'm thinking of a "quick & dirty" paintjob! I'm still not sure on a color.....but I do like the looks of some of the Military Green ones I've seen pics of....

    So you are going to have your Blazer the same color as mine? /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Are you going to put the white stars on the doors too /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif I don't know where I am going to get the paint yet but I am going to try and find the "real" stuff (ie militaty surplus).

    Try some of the places listed at the bottom of this page

    Dan,

    I guess MOST guys have a strong opinion about what color their Blazer should be.....I don't.

    Most other cars, or whatever....I always have a "favorite color"...but for some reason, I just can't think of anything that seems "right" for this 1st Gen. I don't want to use a "modern" color, since that would seem out of place....and the factory colors from those years aren't all that interesting either.

    My wife acutally LIKES the "matte finish" of the primer that's on it now.....which got me thinking about an olive green color....since most are sort of a "flat finish" too. Plus, I figure if I don't like it, and the paint was cheap enough....I could just strip it down and repaint it with some thing else later on.

    The nice thing about olive drab, is that all the accessories can be BASIC-BLACK and they look good. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Burt,

    If you look at the Jeep restoration on that site, he documents all the parts bought.....and all the paint supplies came from here:


    RAPCO Parts Company
    c/o Mark Dodd
    PO Box 91
    Bowie, TX
    tel 940-872-2403
    fax 940-872-3406


    That might be as far as you need to search...........

    local hardware store rattle cans. Krylon is what i used. they had all the drab colors available. i did however use regular flat black. on the cans it shows three different paint schemes and what colors you need for each...with the part number.
    just be sure to primer first. i didn't bother to prime the top of mine and now it shows.
    you can see my blazer in it's camo scheme at my gallery site below.
    week-end spray bomb.....cost..$70

    I like the idea of using the mil. spec paint because of how tough it is. Also when you look at how many rattle cans it would take to paint the thing I think it would end up being cheeper to do the mil stuff.

    Steve: Those are some nice links. Keep me updated on what you get...I'll be buying some to paint the Blazer w/ this summer (prob after Blazer-Fest and before Moab).

    Ok Cool! Ya I'm gonna let the temps heat up a bit before I start in on the painting. Did you pick out a paint code # yet. kinda tuff with just the discriptions. The forset green the M.Corps uses sounds interesting too, I'm gonna seach and see if I can't find pics with examples of the diffeerent shades......

    Looks like Aervoe will send you actual paint samples on a card if you ask them...

    I wouldn't trust what the colors look like on a computer screen...except maybe to get a "relative idea" of which ones are darker than others......

    Yeah, Thats what I did but still found the actual paint to be a little lighter than the samples they sent me.

Th OD color I picked out from Rapco is not listed on that site/forums/images/icons/frown.gif so still searching for #24087 sample.....Oh I hear ya about the monitor changing the shade/forums/images/icons/mad.gif.
