    Any suggestions. I would like to get the same shade the military used on the m1008's and m1009's.


    Thanks,

    most pait stores can mix pait to military color specs. If you are doing any prep work to the old CARC paint make sure you were a good respirator when sanding. I haven't heard many good things about the arovee paint, i've been told it fades badly. Gilespe also has the premixed military colors. heres a link to a supplier of it.

    I would go with a paint thats mixed to military color, it will probally hold up better.
