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.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.
