THe key is breaking up the outlineof your car....pattern is not as important as breaking up the lines of the truck...unless of course you want to match a certain pattern (hunting - real tree) (army - woodland) (marine - digi camo) whichever.

This is the only pic I have found so far, its a 1999 Tacoma, but it looks airbrushed, which means very professional, and VERY exspensive.... let me keep looking. see if I can get some good examples for you.

Okay after a little more looking around for you, this is what I got.

First Off, Classic Woodland Camo:
Click the image to open in full size.

Next up is an example of realtree camo:
Click the image to open in full size.

And then there is my least favorite Digi Camo: (This is the only decent example I could find)
Click the image to open in full size.


okay, now for some trucks...

This is what I meant by breaking up lines, just change the siloutte of the truck, dont follow body lines or anything, this is desert camo, but same priciple appliesThis truck actually belongs to LOCKnGO her eon the boards.
Click the image to open in full size.

Here is a pretty good Woodland look on Double Cab Taco
Click the image to open in full size.

Here is Ryker's (1985 4Runner on the boards)Painted with Krylon from Wal Mart
Click the image to open in full size.

Here is 91 4Runner's who may be on to the right idea, you may want to PM him to ask about those stencils....This is the base coat color that he painted the runner first.
Click the image to open in full size.

Then he plans to stencil one of these three cmao patterns over it, again you may want to PM him to ask about the stencil, its a pretty slick idea...
Click the image to open in full size.



There are many other ways to do it, and Im sure there are many tips and tricks, and probably even woodland camo stencils, or even painting kits out there for this kind of thing, I really don't know, but I hope this gives you some ideas....

Once the prep work is done - body work, remove all wax, sand old paint, etc.- it should be just a matter of applying a good automotive primer & start painting. Prep work is the key to a good paint job. There is a type of primer commonly referred to as "acid-etching" that can be very useful in painting an older vehicle where the surface is not perfect or there is the potential for rust that could not be eliminated.

As far as the pattern - don't make it symmetrical. The breakup of the vehicle outline is dependant upon the lack of an overall pattern. Some people who camo things themselves lay down a base (pick your color - OD green, brown, black, sand, etc) and then overlay the other colors on the base. You can even make cut outs of leaves branches, etc. from cardboard to assist instead of trying to free hand everything. One last thing - if you want to actually be able to hide it use a flat paint - do not use a clear coat or other layer that will make it shine. Things that shine are easily spotted.

Hope this helps.

I've used Wet Knole's Advantage Max-4 Real Tree HD vinel on a few truck. Very high quality stuff, looks great, cheaper than painting.

The rig is all faded anyway but i'm still going to sand it. Do i have to sand it down to metal or just ruff up the paint.

just ruff it up. I didnt see any woodland stencil kits looking around except for some that cost like $200, so forget that, I would just tape it off and go for it.

Home Depot sells rattle can camo paint. Not sure how it works, but it's supposed to come out of the can without getting all of the colors mixed. I bought some to paint a trailer I'm going to use for hauling my hunting gear around in, but I haven't had time to get it done. I'll post pics when I finally get around to it if it turns out o.k.

That sounds a little sketchy...I'd like to see it when it's done.

99% of the work is all prep and sanding, you can do a rattle can job and be fine, krylon sells camo paint thats very good stuff.

The entire point in making the pattern is (for woodland) start by painting everything black, then paint the entire truck olive drab green (or a similar green), 2-3 coats! With sanding in between since this is the base layer.

Then work out a pattern, look at military clothing and trucks to help, but the pattern is there isno real pattern-every truck is different. Basically you break up the outlines of the truck, everything rounded and square should get camo on it and it should look like you threw big blotches of paint on when you set it up.

Practice on a piece of wood first to get the fell of it.

There you go...You could substitute any colors instead of what he chose, but I think this is the best write up on "how to". Next spring mine will follow a similar pattern but with desert camo! Cant wait!!!
