I just repainted the M715. I had to go with Valspar instead of Sherwin-Williams as Lowes didn't have the base I need.

I swear by Sherwin-Williams but have my doubts about the Valspar. We will see after the first pressure wash...

And to say it was BRIGHT when u sprayed is an understatement!

I honestly thought I messed up and would have to start over.

She is still a little bright in the sun, though

1985 CUCV, M 1102 Trailer and a S-250 Shelter. All done with paint from Home Depot. Love everything about the paint. I’m all about trying to keeping it close to military as possible, but I work at a Depot and after smelling that crap all day and dealing with all the proper PPE just to touch up a bad spot. I would rather same some money and my life using Home Depot paint. View attachment 911706
Wow. Looks really good! Premium Plus or Marquee with this one?

Ok... update on the Valspar exterior.

I painted the M715 with Valspar exterior in a "Pine Bough Green" and stressed the first pressure wash, as I didn't know how it would hold up compared to the Sherwin-Williams...

I'm pleased to say there was no flaking or loss of any paint! It held up extremely well!
