Are there any other carc 2 greens available besides 383, don't marines use a darker green. Want to use carc to paint my armored m925a1. I've used behr on my m146 and a few other projects but it always seems to spit chunks when sprayed from paint gun or my Wagner airless sprayer. It's like the latex builds up at nozzle, plugs and spits.

Try adding some Floetrol to your Behr before spraying; it will thin it slightly but retard the drying time to allow for better spray behavior. The retarded drying time also allows the paint to lay down better for a smoother finish coat.

Also, be sure to strain your paint & additives before adding it to a freshly-cleaned 5-gallon bucket for your airless machine, in case you are getting chunks or something that mixing didn't take care of.

Floetrol comes in orange-colored plastic bottles in the paint section of big-box hardware stores.

So l found this on carc 2 paints from Sherwin Williams apparently there are several other carc colors available Screenshot_20171205-122246.jpg I'm particularly interested in the fs34031. I haven't checked availability of it from Sherwin Williams but I think this maybe my new color of choice for my projects.
