About too paint my airboat camo!

Post by Ruccus25 » Sun Mar 27, 2016 1:18 pm

I need some answers?

Me and my buddy is about to paint my boat shadow grass camo.
We have been mixing and matching practicing for a week.
Can anyone tell me the names of the paint colors? It would make it a lot easier!
Thanks y'all if for the help

Call Alumitech and talk to Steve, tell him I told you to call him. He has the paint codes in a file that I use when I paint the Camo boats for them... I use 3 different shades of brown to do them, starting with the lightest color and painting the whole hull, then doing the grass in the two darker brown colors... But realistically you can just pic any colors you want to do the shadow grass Camo... Most of it is just personal preference and how much effort and color definition you want to put into your paint job...

LOLOL I don't know about all that Sniper, but I do try to give sound advise that's tried and true by me personally... And I'm a DIYer so I appreciate it when someone is willing to give it a shot doing it themselves... It's not always about making money off someone... Sometimes it's just about being a decent human being and trying to help others... I offer up lots of tricks and tips that most painters who want your money won't, and I do it for the mere reason that it took me a long time to learn some of them on my own because I didn't have anyone to point me in the right direction, but I had plenty of people who tried to set me up to fail... And I just flat out refuse to be that kind of person... My momma raised me better than that... :wink: So now I do my best not to be "the norm"... Lead by example right??? :D
