Some of our forum users have found that they can get a unique look for their offroad rig for a very low cost. This page is dedicated to cheap camouflage painting. The Bronco II shown below is owned by forum user 'buddy1977'. The truck used 12 cans of Krylon paint.
"I started out sanding
with 220 grit because the old paint had some bad places. I had to smooth
off some uneven areas on the old paint. After that I sanded with 400
grit. Then I masked everything off and started painting. I used 12 cans
of Krylon Camo OD Green spray paint. I still have some work left but for
the most part this is how it will look. Oh as for the door jams. I did
not paint them because the truck was black and black door jams with the
green exterior looks fine.
is a rough estimate of what I have invested in this paint job.
Below is a picture of RangerMike93's OD Green Ranger. He too painted it with spray cans. Below is his play by play on how he did it:
1...removed all trim, pin stripes, and lights/grille. Started 220 grit.
