: Another forum of restorers discussing the
: subject claims that all Jeeps leaving the
: factory were in either Olive Drab or Marine
: Corps Forest Green. All Navy Jeeps then
: painted gray were done in the field...none
: are known to have come off the assembly line
: in this color. So, it recommends first
: painting the vehicle in either OD or Forest
: Green, then overspraying with the Navy Gray,
: and leaving areas (like under the hood,
: etc.) that could not be reached by a spray
: gun in the base color. Again, no idea how
: true this is...
As some of you know, I make my living researching and writing about military subjects - occasionally ships, and often about military vehicles. I have spent a lot of hours researching this - and can tell you absolutely the above is correct.
Hope this helps,
