CAMOUFLAGE STENCILS FOR TRUCK

Question

Fish On! Guide Service

Mother nature has taken it's course on my trucks body so it's time to paint her in a camouflage pattern. Besides Cabelas and BPS (reelfoot camo kits), anyone know of any inexpensive STENCIL kits for camouflaging my truck? Any suggestions, tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Stephen

I went to a craft shop and picked up different grass stencils. That way you can pick and choose what you want.(if you want to get that technical) They have some that give the appearance of long blades of grass. you may have to thin them out a bit, otherwise the paint gets gooped up quick. I found that it helped trying a few practice stencils on a piece of cardboard to figure out your pattern. I had did this to a truck last spring...I have since sold it. I really wish I had taken pictures..

I had a 1988 Chevy Fun ton. It had the paint delam problem with the silver paint. I scraped most of off with a razorblade. Then I scuffed it with a Scotch brite pad. Cleaned it off and taped up around the area I didn't want oversrpay. Then I spray bombed it with a light dull beige camo paint. After that dried I used a dull green, dull brown, and flat black spray bomb to paint the leaves. I just plucked off maple, elm, and sumac. Just hold on the truck and spray paint the leaf. When you take the leaf off it leaves a perfect shape of it.

It turned out so good many people asked where I got the stickers for it.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂

      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
