Thanks a lot. Will research both.Locally sourced then Behr paint is the easiest to get, and the Federal color code matching is pretty good. The Behr Ultra is supposedly a little less sheen to it, the Behr Marquee is a little more durable, but not by much.
If ordering from the internet then Rapco is the preferred source. Can be had as either gallons or spray cans, one 12 pack seems to be enough for a decent job on a 2 or 4 door HMMWV, but might be a little short on an ambulance body or shelter carrier.
My experience with the two is the Behr Marquee mixed up at my local Home Depot to FS 34094 came out just slightly darker than the Rapco paint in gallon form going through the same sprayer. The rattle cans of Rapco have to be applied heavily in order to match the color I got from the sprayer I used.
One other thing to consider, the Behr is water based, so clean up is easy. The Rapco (made by Gillespie) is oil based, cleanup is a bit more involved with chemicals (Xylene is the preferred method) but gave a slightly better finish in my opinion.
Rapco paint 4 gallons to my door was about $190.Behr paint is water based and not identified as cancer causing.
CARC is cancer causing.
Not sure about Rapco, and jury is not yet out on Xylene.
Behr paint is super cheap and as easy as going to your local Home Despot.
Your truck, and whatever you chose will work. Please post post-painting pictures.
im still on the fence about the three color camo paint, I really like the solid green but my doors are camo so I’m trying to see about how to paint the vinyl doors.And the black and brown splotches could be added with rapco or rustoleum rattlecan if desired.
I think it looks great solid green.
See my note above yours on painting the soft top and doors. I had really good luck and they've held up great.im still on the fence about the three color camo paint, I really like the solid green but my doors are camo so I’m trying to see about how to paint the vinyl doors.
