One more of the Generation Kill HMMWV's...

Post by DoctorCheney223 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:29 am

This was the worst of the lot. Hydrobooster is gone, master cylinder is gone, some panels removed and plenty of hoses cut. Because this one will take the longest to get roadworthy, I decided to give it a paint job today (along with A1 seats).

It took pretty much most of the day and almost a gallon of Home Depot Behr Federal Standard 383 green, about 1/5th gallon of 383 black and about a pint and half of 383 brown.

When you bought the paint at HD did you just give them the federal standard codes, the clerk here did not have a clue what to do with them. Do you have the code Home Depot put on the can? What base did they use? Thanks

There's nothing like a fresh coat of paint.

Go to any good paint store....Kelly Moore, sherwin Williams.....give them a good clean chip and they will reproduce it.
I did at SW and new green, maroon and deep gold. Send me your cell and I can text you a pic of the custom label on the can

You can have the Home Depot paint department do a competitor search for Federal Standard and here are the following colors we use:

30051 Brown 383
34094 Green 383
37030 Black 383
33446 Desert Tan

thanks,
