Military paint

I am thinking about painting my jeep either camp or a flat green to add the military effect. If anyone has any pics they could post and also what paint works/doesn't work. Thanks!

Saw this guy use "C.A.R.C." coating that they use on Humvees and tanks. Looks pretty sweet and is pretty durable apparently. No clue where you would get it.

It's the same product, I've experimented with them and it's tough, Just sand and prime really well. Touch up is easy obviously. Buy a can and try it first.

CARC is awesome but EXTREMELY TOXIC and needs a huge setup to use safely.

I believe the Guy pictured got it professionally done so that's another thing to consider. So knowing its toxic is DEFINITELY important info for OP!

It's a Polyurethane paint like Imron, isn't it?

I'm not sure what Imron is but yeah it's a polyurethane based coating usually in two steps, since the military and civilian healthcare people have it listed as a major risk I'd go with the rattle can. lol

Imron is a brand name of Polyurethane paint. DuPont, I believe. I was reading up on CARC and the new version is water based, but you still have to wear a special respirator that supplies fresh air to paint with it. You're supposed to wear it if you ever have to sand on it later on. Crazy.

I've always been a fan of zinc/chromate.

Not super military, but I blacked out my Jeep Green 09 Wrangler's wheels yesterday with Plastidip, and I think it looks pretty tactical.

It looks a little lighter depending on the angle. Overall I'm happy. Now on to the next mod!

My friend did his black jeep too but blacked out everything, including center caps. Looked sharp.
