All this talk about camo and the Ripped Reptile look camo I need to camo another car.
My 1995 corolla clear coat is looking sad on the top and the truck and I told the wife I was going to camo it like I did my Geo metro.
She said do it.


I think I need to do something like this that Perplexed posted.
I will need to experiment on some scrap panels and see how it looks.

They do that now because it is concrete colored and wife was clipped in the rear 1/4 by a Semi that did not see the car.
She no longer drives it as once pushed sideways in the rear quarter by a semi going 65 MPH down the highway is enough.

That is the classic move to spin someone out.
Can't be worse than the color it is.

She does not drive the Corolla at all.
She now has a Pontiac Vibe which is taller and fatter so it is easier to see.
I tell her drive my 57 Chevy and she said people at tinker can't park and it would get all dented up and it is too big.

She has driven my 47 dodge truck a few times when I am gone and she needs to haul something.
But she likes her Vibe

Swampy, you seriously need to post pics of the concrete colored car as it is now. That's the only way we can truly appreciate the outcome, if you do Camo that baby up. Show us the canvas upon which you shall paint! Also, it might be good too go ahead and post pics of the camo'd GEO and the older model truck too, just so folks see what you're talking about.

ok and right now I have the hood popped open as I pulled the battery because it would only go click. The battery is 9 years old.
12/ 2010 I flushed it a dozen times this morning with water and added new acid and stuck it on a charger.. see if I can revive it.

The rear quarter where the Semi got into it and pushed her sideways down the highway.
Those front spike lugnuts cut well.

Here is her Vibe it is a bit taller.
