I have the below wrangler that I'm considering painting. It has its share of dents scrapes, and is in need of a windscreen frame. The current dark blue has gone completely flat. I'm anticipating doing a restoration in a couple years so this will be far from a perminate alteration.

 

Now I could base coat the entire jeep in OD green and start from there but the tub will still be blue on the inside YUK!

 

but what about using the existing flattened dark blue as a base for a "urban camo job" much like some of the aircraft in the USAF aggressor squadron.

possibly in a digital format

 

 

Any more pics of vehicles in such a color scheme would be very welcome, and of course any tips for getting the original paint to hold these other colors would be welcome as well.

"Digital Camo" on a TJ

 

 

 

I saw that and quite frankly I'm staggered by the amount of time it must have taken. Hats off to whoever painted that one. I do however plan on blacking my grille in the same manner

 

On a side note I'm considering adding another color to the mix to bust up the p[pattern a bit more. Prolly something halfway between tan and off white.

not that much time. just lots of tape.... massive amounts of tape... probably a ball of tape the size of the jeep when finished...

Thank god we bumped into page 2 as if this thread wasn't 56k unfriendly enough[;)]

 

at this point it's done for a few days till some of the colors have a chance to cure, at which point I plan to add some small off white or tan blocks.

 

odiously this is one of those projects that morph into something completely different than the plan you had at outset
