Best olive drab paint and bedliner. Need opinions

I'm definately going to paint my CJ in OD, but haven't decided if I want a bit of a gloss (so 14087) or matte (34087). I'm not going to rattle can it -- I'm able to make a spray booth and have the equipment. Looking for something that will last awhile. Also want to bedline the entire tub to match. Any suggestions? How many coats and would you put a clearcoat on? If I gloss her up a bit, thinking of doing bumpers, tie downs etc in black.

Since it sounds like you have some experience painting, you already probably know that gloss paint has a much harder finish than flat. If it were me, I'd paint it in gloss, and if you want to dull down the sheen, put a satin, or flat clear over it. Flat will make it hard to get mud, crud out, being so porous, but a nice satin will be easier to clean and still look good. If you clear it with satin and decide it's too shiny still you could mix some flattener to dull it more. Black accents would look great either way, IMO... Good luck with it, and post up some pics!

Raptor makes a tint-able spray in bed liner, and PPG has a color called lusterless olive drab. To tint the bed liner you have to add a single stage paint (lusterless OD). The tinted bed liner comes out a little flat compared to the paint. You have to add the flattening agent to the paint when you mix it to spray. I would only use a quarter of what is recommended and that way it would match anything sprayed in paint. Matrix also makes the Lusterless OD but flattener is already in it so your bed liner would be flatter if you go that way.
