    Got them in the local store around Labor day and they were on sale, got the stand also.

    The only problems I have had with house paint has been my fault in the prep. I have had small areas come loose and show the base color. I have kept small jars of the colors I have used. I re clean/prep the spot and use an artist brush to do the touch up.

    The 211 was last winter 2nd year on paint, M885 truck 4 years and shelter 2 years

    Here is Dan Martin & Alex Gordon (Idaho Motor Pool) formula for Desert Tan

    Home Depot - Base = BEHR Ultra Flat Base Pastel Base (4855/2-4855)

    Colorant............ OZ... 48... 96
    C-Yellow Oxide... 5..... 17.... 0
    E-Thalo Blue....... 0..... 43 ... 1
    F-Red Oxide....... 0 ......16.... 0

    __________________________________________________ ______

    Here is Wayne/pinz25086 formula for Desert Tan

    Lowes - Base = Valspar Exterior Flat Finish - Flat Base 4

    101 - 7.5
    104 - 5.5
    107 - 29.5
    113 - 2Y7

    Here are four of the trucks we painted this week. These were all painted using Behr Paint from Home Depot. I still have one M35A2 and a M109A3 to finish. These trucks will soon be seen cruising up and down the Las Vegas Strip

    thanks,
    Ron

    Those look awesome! Do you remember what formulas you used for your colors?
