Did you sand it all down first ?
Did you prim it first ?
How did you come up with the layout ?

This was about 7-8yrs ago but Krylon camo Tan, Brown, Black and Flat White.

Not taping the edges of the different colors. It looked better to me than having hard contrast....probably about 4 cans of tan and brown, 1 of black and white.

I layed some desert camo pants on the driveway and compared occaisionally.

I did the tan first, then added brown where I thought needed it to be broken up. Then painted white spots randomly but it seemed to look good if I had a larger glob with a couple small ones around it. To do them I held the can as close as I could without getting runs. Then came back and added black as shadowing to the white and it was the same thing to apply, as close as possible without runs.

I got it to shine with wood polish, which would last about a week. I have also heard of Mop n' Glow working too.

It worked well, I actually broke in the at Sand Mtn. once and got a ride to camp and it was dusk when we came back and couldn't find it until we happened upon our own tracks from when we left.

The truck is long gone but still one of my favorites.

Nick

Here's the thread from when I painted my truck tiger camo.

http://www.yotatech.com/f116/time-ne...beware-122502/

After I sanded it down, I sprayed on one coat of primer then hit it with the rattlecans.

I think I used 4 cans of primer, and 5 cans of paint total. It took me about 8-10 hours of total prep and paint. That includes sanding, taping, primer, and paint. If you have any question, shoot me a PM.
