Camo

Like it says, mine needs a paint job real bad, don't wanna worry about a good color paint job, I wanna see less than 100 dollar paint jobs, If its a million dollar show winning camo job honestly I really don't want it, I want something I could care less if I scratch it, and cheap to keep a couple rattle cans around for touch ups if needed.

House paint won't stick very good though, I was thinking rattle can, just don't really wanna do the armies camo, feel like its best left to our boys.
Also kicked around just a flat olive drab, that would spray easy and be easy to touch up.

Check out my build in my Signature for more pics. OD green and painted for about $50. I've scratched and dented my jeep and it touches up and matches perfectly.

I panted my old Toyota with some black industrial paint from where I used to work, got it for free, mixed it with some lacquer thinner and it worked great. Easy to fix if it got scratched too.
