    I just bought a second 79 Blazer and going with a camo paint job again but this time green, tan, brown. In Canada I can't seem to find flat paints other than black,white and grey. Any suggestions at US chain stores? We are going to Fargo and Grand Forks ND this weekend.
    I just want "cheap" spray cans nothing fancy .

    Thanks

    Most hardware stores should have Krylon camo paint. Most of what I've seen is the green/black/brown. Even some of the Walmarts here have it.

    Any army surplus stores around you?? i got a 15 gallon can of OD green for like 100 bucks and it was good paint, easy to use and had lots of really toxic sh!t in it for rust protection etc. really good stuff, although if your gonna brush it on, get good bruches, cause it eats the cheap ones.

    Thats kinda scary!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Military paint is some tough stuff. Better than anything that comes in a spray bomb can.

    Back from our road trip to North Dakota and the only place I found any camo colors was at Menards. Picked up half a dozen cans of each.

    Later
