    Just got the scout out of the paint booth, went with camo, about 7 colors of base and another 10 for airbrushing grass, leaves, weeds, ect. The bottom is going to get spray on bedliner this afternoon. See anything else in the last two pics, those are next to my IH badges. Should be a good work truck for my taxidermy shop.

    yeah here are some pics of the stages, I was looking at Advantage Max 4 camo when picking colors, my body man laid them down as he thought.

    Looks great! Never did I understand camo though. Go hunting, don't bag a deer and can't find the truck. Or worse yet, bag the deer and can't find the truck.

    some more, the last base color was a dark gray that he misted the whole scout really quick to blend it and kind of gave it a "speckled" look, then added some streads of black, then tree leaves, corn stalk leaves, some cattails, yellow grass, brown grass, then more leaves and a few antlers. Most of the time was spent airbrushing, me and my buddy going for about 8 hours. Alot of different colors went into each pattern (leaves, grass, ect.) and then alot of shading to give it that 3-D look, these pictures really do not do it justice.

    The camo turned out really nice! Eager to see the liner sprayed on and everything put back together.

    here is some pics with the bedliner on, I think it looks pretty darn good, almost looks like fender flares over the wheel wells. Next we will put bedliner on the bumpers, install radiator, all new weatherstripping, and paint my badges to put on.:)

    Never been a real big fan of the camo paint job but I kind of like yours...maybe because most guys that paint it camo do so with spray-cans! LOL

    I like the idea of the liner, never thought of going over the wheel wells like that

    Bet it is nice to have a booth to spray in:clap:

    Love it, I have owned two Camo Scouts, a trail rig done by me and a DD Scout that was camo'd by a PO. I think yours turned out great. Good job.

    thanks for all the comments, the paint booth is great for painting but not enough room in their to spray the bedliner, so we went outside on the gravel, wetting it down real well first. I wanted him to spray in the wheel wells also so he needed room to move around it quickly, I guess once you start spraying it is hard to re-start once you have stopped until the cartridge is gone. Anybody ever use this stuff before, he has been using it for a year now and says it is undestructable, only $30 a tube and it took 3 tubes to do the scout and guessing another 2 for the bumpers

    Wow! I really like this. More of a mural then my idea of camouflage. Very creative. Congrats on a fine job.

    I especially like the line you took on the rear with the liner - rather than a straight line.

    Nice job.

    Now that is just plain awesome! :beer:
    I'm surprised we don't see more new trucks with Real Tree, Woodlands or some type of camo paint theme. Done up like yours it's pretty upscale classy.
    I've seen wraps, but never a full paint job.
    Be careful leaning your shotgun up against the Scout, you may never find it again. :D

    Yeah I looked at some of the camo wraps available, price wasn't too bad but I just wasn't sure on the overall durability of them. And actually this was cheaper than a wrap being as I helped my paint guy and we used alot of his left over paint from other jobs. Also went with matte clear rather than a gloss.

    That has got to be totally sweet to see in person! Great idea on the satin clear. Is the cammo "buried" in clear, or did you leave a bit of texture? Now that I ask that, I'm not sure what I'd prefer. Probably have to see it to know. See how it picks up the light. Since you get to look at it, what do you think?

    What are you doing interior wise? There is some real nice vinyls that look like worn leather. If you haven't already done the interior, look towards the end of the "30 day build" thread by Gary Billings. The seats came out amazing!
    Would look really cool with your paint work. :yes:
