Default Olive Drab paint

I have a few Gallons of semi-gloss Olive Drab paint and a few cases of the same in aerosol form available for local pickup.

$25 per gallon
$60 per case of 12 aerosols.

Color looks like this.

Gillespie is a Mil Spec supplier of OD paints. Also, even though this is a cheaper brand of paint (compared to like a Dupont, etc), if you add a hardener catalyst, with equal part flattening agent to reduce the gloss of the hardener, this paint will outlast and be more scratch resistant than some of the better auto paints, at a FRACTION of the cost.

^^ little advertising for you...GCI is good stuff.

How much did it take you to paint your rig? I may want some.

I didnt use hardener on my Jeep, and it's tough as nails for 3+ years now i guess.

I also didnt use a flattener... defeats the purpose. I wanted a semi-gloss finish.. i think it looks better. Just order a flat OD if thats your style.

I used a gallon and a few aerosols to paint my rig.

I have NO doubts whatsoever, just if you DO add hardener and a flattener to offset, it hardens even more.

I like the deal. I am in MD though. Let me see if I can arrange a "parts train"

Thanks

Not really... too much of a pita with hazmat fees and regulations that i'm not equipped for.

www.armyjeepparts.com sells this paint as well, He's setup to ship it if you really want it.
