    what is the shelf life of paint?

    I have a friend that is still using up his full leftover cans of automotive paint from the 80's. Uses it to spray various things like yard chairs and the such. He says it still works great. I would think the oil based Gillespie would last better than the modern Acrylic.

    MERDC and LMTV

    Like SIGO says - Just remember back in the day the MERDC patterns were kind of a guide for the local units to paint their vehicles. Many of the paint jobs were close but varied a lot.

    My first running M38A1

    Make sure you save and try to straighten that front bumper as it is the early short one and correct for your M38A1. The original diagonal seam fenders are original and rare too.
