Dodge WC Paint colour

Recommended Posts

I know the question of olive drab paint colour has been asked before, however I couldn't find any suitable links or examples of the items spoken about in the other threads. 

As i am getting the chassis of the WC51 blasted in the not so distant future the colour of paint has rapidly become a prime thought in my mind the original green is definitely a green without any brown. 

Living the UK i am looking for a UK/Europe based supplier or a form of reference code for the media blasters to mix up, if there is such a thing.

If anyone has any advice on the matter or examples of the colour on their own vehicles it would certainly be of the utmost interest.

Kind regards, 

Chris.

What I did was take a sample of the closest colour to what I wanted off the original vehicle,  took it to my local Dulux who coulour matched it. That way you get new paint with  a hint of the vehicle having worked for a living. I use the Metalsheild mixed for me, then you get the best of the new without it looking 'Straight from Showroom. The paint can be sparayed , brushed or rollored. Remeber the military reasons for paint 1 Protect metal  2 Camoflage 3 Apperance. They can throw in a matting agent, so you do get an egshellish finish, but it much easier to clean

The colour most people agree on is (one of the) correct OD shade(s) is called 'MAT 1' and is readily available from most of the usual parts suppliers.
