    i'm in the process of doing a spray bomb paint job, camo pattern, and was wondering should i tape off the different colors or let them run together..kinda like airbrushed..
    which looks better? so far i have taped off the tailgate and painted it and it doesn't seem natural, kinda looks like patch work instead of camo.
    any one who has done this and can offer some advice my ears are wide open.

    by the way..my wife wouldn't ride in the blazer before; now she says there is no way she will be seen it the blazer......i'm kinda liking my FREEDOM!

    Most overheard question in the Carolinas...................."Randy who"????

    No tape...just let it fog. Like you said taping just doesnt look natural. Another variation, which seems to be sorta south oriented, is to hold something up to the rig and fog around it. We use Palmetto's for this. I have seen leaves and all sorts of patterns. I have never done it myself, I prefer to just fog it in a camo pattern.

    You can also seperate the colors with a thin line of black spray paint instead of running them together. It breaks up the colors good and gives a branch effect.
