Where to get olive drab or desert tan?

I have my new tub and I am starting to work on it tonight since all I am doing is waiting for morning to come so I can leave for Gon-Zookin. I went around running errands and as I was i stopped all over looking for camo colors. I want either OD or Desert tan or sand... I am only needing rattle cans so that leaves out area paint guys, although I tried them too. Those of you that have it, where did you get it? Thanks, Brent

Both Krylon and rustolium make camo paint systems.
Autozone should have the krylon and whoever in your are (hardware/paint store) will have the rust- Lowes or homedepot should too. The rustolium seems to spray on better btw,
you should have the place you bought it from put them in the paint shacker for a few mins, sometimes you get clogs if they are not shaken alot.

Re: Where to get olive drab or desert tan?

Brent,

I painted my zook myself, fourth car i've done.
It came out pretty nice except for a few spots on the hood where some grease got on when I wasnt looking. Even then it looked really nice in vette yellow.

Anyway,
I got almost a gallon of dupont blue you can have I am not using. Its really nice paint. Kinda like a deep navy.
Or if you want to buy some in your color I can spray it for you.

Nothing beats real paint. And you can even get some really cheap that is made for farm equipment. Or buy the rust-oleum in a gallon.

there is not a lot of prep on a sammy anyway.

Here is a bad pic, low res at night:

Re: Where to get olive drab or desert tan?

I agree with Ada silva that "real paint" is nice .It shines better and lasts longer .It is also more scratch resistant too .But on a trail vehicle I like the rattle can . Tear it up and re spray it when you get home ! If you are really style conscious carry a can for touch ups on the trail ! lol I found OD green and Desert tan for 49cents a can at Big Lots too .

Re: Where to get olive drab or desert tan?

Yes, the can is nice. But you can get one of those aerosol propelled cans for touch ups. And for me, pulling out the spray gun and touching up a quarter panel is almost as easy as shaking that can for three minutes to make sure its gonna flow right.

I used to rally with the red Audi in this pic. Had to touch it up a thousand times. Only time I did not was when I hit a guard-rail and flipped it three times before literally snapping it in half on a sewer drainage inlet ( five foot high tunnel looking thing).

The worst thing about it, turns out the car was one of 11 imported into the US. Limited production race car. I thought I had bought a souped-up junker, and it was all original. Because of my sacrilage the Audi guys don't talk to me no more....
