    Ok, How do I? It's red right now. What is the recommended
    method for getting it to look like a hunting rig, and not stand out like a sore thumb?[:eek:)]

    I've thought about that mesh camo fabric by the foot and just covering it up? Anyway. Get those ideas coming! Thanks.

    I love red! red 4 wheeler,red truck, red Blazer, red Corvette, red tractor, red motorcycle...geesh now I think something is wrong with me!..lol But seriuosly, camo netting sounds the easiest and just as effective, painting can be complicated especially the plastic, plus the paint will hurt the resale value. New green plastic would cost a war pension but then you would have to paint the metal parts. Realtree's adhesive camo might be an idea, however I have no idea what it would cost. If I were doing it...I would just do the netting...but thats just me.[:D]

    P.B. ckeck out www.dinniskirk.com or call (800) 328-9280 and order thier free catalog to find camo tape kits and paints. The catalog is about 3/4" thick and has about any thing you can dream up for an ATV. Hope it helps.[;)]

    since your not going to be hunting from it; leave it red so when your done hunting you can find it back more easily.........unless you're color blind and then any color will do.........as long as it runs and gets you to the place you want to go..........or a few different color cans of bow dull.............ez

    [:D] I like that idea! I think the mesh cloth/netting is the way to go now. Thanks!

    Don't waste time with paint and such, go to

    www.camoclad.com

    they have several different camo patterns on an adhesive cloth to fit any 4 wheeler on the market.

    Call that 800 number P.Beyer and I'll double check my catalog for that link tonight. I got the same thing you got when I pulled it up here too? It's a good to have for parts if need be. [xx(]

  11. Why paint your truck? Animals see in hues of grays and blues and for the most part are not scared of your truck. Where I'm from we can call in predators from our trucks, they don't seem to be to scared unless they see us move. How many times have you seen a deer or antelope stand there and look at you in your truck? This camo craz is nothing but a huge sales pitch. If you could look in the B&C records and ask how many of them folks had on camo, I'd bet you'd be real suprised. Hey this is only what I think of camo, if you like it go for it and I hope it helps. Good Hunting
