It is just as easy as any other camo job. You first need to pic your colors. Winter camo is made up of white, gray, and black.

White is your base coat, then gray and black are your pattern effects colors. Here is what I would recommend in doing this as I have done all three types in the past, winter, desert, and forrest.

And the most important part in doing these jobs is planning.

Several rolls of 1/8 size pinstriping.
(This will allow you you to layout your design nicely after the base coat)

Several rolls of masking tape
(tape off around each pattern)

Several collections of newspapers
(to cover unwanted areas with the paint you are using

Make sure you have a good imagination picture in your mind on how you want this to look. Take your time and you will reward yourself with the outcome. These types of paintjobs are usually flat colors, not glossy nor semi glossy.

When you are done, then take wet sandpaper and lightly wet sand everything after you are done to blend in the patterns to give it the one coat look instenad of the 3 stage on top of each color look.

A good reference to all these patterns is to look on the web and use google to come up with the camo pattern you desire.

US Army Air Corps (current Air FOrce) did a study back in WWII on the best camoflauge color for painting airplanes---to hide them during an over-the-horizon attack.

Apparently, pink was the least noticable.

Perhaps the grey/black stand out and mimic "natural" breaks in contour.

Red ya still need the shadows that the sun casts in the snow. Alot of different snow patterns, some are actually pretty good looking.

Me too...it looks like it would be real easy to **** up the snow camo and have it ending up looking like a cow...

Rattle Camo here.

but, the clear coat was sanded down to give it something to grip to.

Through my many years of experience in doing camo jobs with nothing but rattle can, I have never had paint come off in the car wash. You can spray over just about anything on the body, sand, dust, crap, and it will still stick. It my spot chip due to those elements, but it does cover and takes alittle bit for that to happen.

The only way I see that happening is you dunked your truck in oil then sprayed it. Other than that rediculous idea I just mentioned, BS, and unless you did not know what you were doing and used colors, I just got to call it as I see it.

:thehand You are not getting off that easy.


:shrug Pics of what it looks like now before you start sanding. Only takes a minute to snap a shot of it.



:bs If not, then I still say BS, if you prove it by a pic, then I will be the first to say :wtf.

i already repainted it satin hunter green, i am being completely honest on this, i didnt do hardly any prep at all, i did a half ass job and quite a bit of it came off at the carwash, it was only on the bottom edges of cab, around wheelwells and under the tailgate and headlights, it didnt totally come off but enough of it did to make it look shitty, im getting a new phone hopefully this weekend if everything works out, if i do and it has a camera i will get one on here asap of the hunter green, the whole body is the green, but the shell the bumpers and the rims are all blacked out, but im sol on getting you guys a pic of the first try, my bad:whiteflag:banghead
