    I used the Behr on this M971 trailer two Colorado winters ago. It is holding up remarkably well. the black and brown are the colotrs I applied. The trailer originally was just solid OD green and the older color as you can see in the picture. I am planning to put the CARC 383 formulla on the trailer to get the trailer to match the M818. The stuff sure is easy to handle and clean up.

    Awesome job! I like the sharp lines on your camo.

    Chalked the pattern then days of 1/4" modelers brush outlining the patterns then roller for the big areas believe it or not. Roller put down a nice even texture and color. The big patterns went on quick and easy.

    Thumbs up

    I'll be painting my 1009 with this same paint. My MV budget isn't much bigger than a piggy bank right now, but it's growing. The pictures posted here of vehicles painted with the Behr look outstanding! And the price can't be beat. Just wondering, does Behr have a "name" for each of the woodland camo colors on their color chart, or will the store require codes like the ones for the mixtures mentioned? Thanks again!

    These are ALL color matched colors. There is NO short code or color names on record with Home Depot. They will need to manually type in the formula for each color.

    Thank you! I see the 383 posted that would be the green right? Where can I find the formula for the brown in woodland camo? Also, is the black special, or just pick the best black?

Drain is near I-5 and am going to visit an Army buddy that I havn't seen since 1967 in Tacoma where he was from. I was stationed at Fort Lewis and getting ready to go to Fort Richardson, Alaska.We were in basic together in Fort Ord, CA in Aug of 65. He was home on R&R from Viet Nam and was in the 173d Airborne Brigade ( SEP ) .He is also in elk country. We only found each other last year over the internet. It's been 44 years since we've seen each other. Should be fun!! Well I'm convinced that my deuce "CHEECHAKO" is getting a new paint job when we get back home next spring. elkhunter

    Question Behr

    After your prep work, did you guys first lay down a coat of primer and then shoot the Behr exterior over it?

    If so, what type of primers have been used?

    I just scrubbed the trailer with a Dawn dish washing soap and water solution and put the paint on. The Behr I used was the primer and paint in one. A little more expensive but its holding up good.
