Have decided to bite the bullet and repaint my CVR(T). Have had it for sake for a while now but not been to bothered if it went or not , the paint work is what you would expect from any vehicle that has been in service with lots of layers of paint and some flaking. Sadly the last person who came to look at her decided to start pulling the paint off in large lumps, not sure why anyone feels they have the right to pull off paint from a vehicle they dont own but less said about that. What I need to know is what is the best base primmer to use before repaint. I know I will need to use a etch primmer but not sure if the colour is that important. I will be going to use NATO Green and black colour scheme , so was going to go for a grey primmer but have seen black is available. Which is the best to go for and approx how much would give me a descent base coat? Would have thought 2lt should do it. What is the best colour to use for the interior?:cool:
as the forum suggests i know this sounds stupid but Am looking at re spraying my jeep (m38a1) & have got a tin of matt paint from a reputable supplier. I've test sprayed it (2 coats) & although the colour is good, once dry the paint seems to mark very easily when lightly scratched & i this will be no good for the jeep am i doing something wrong? or is this just how it is? would this be avoided if applied with roller? would this be avoided if i used a satin finish ? any tips greatly appreciated
