Christmas Paint Job - Prezzie From Me To Me

Recommended Posts

I looked at getting a RealTree wrap for my shooting Jeep, but that was quoted to me at around £2200, but a couple of shooting friends painted this for me at just over a third of that cost.

I am really chuffed with it 🙂

Hi Scutt  - being an ageing shooter with the onset of various medical problems, I cannot walk too far these days, especially carrying a load of gear. There are still some good areas on my permissions where I don't have a choice and will still do it, but I am lucky to have proper driveable maintenance strips around a lot of my land.

When my aches and pains just won't stand for it, I have had some success just parking up the Jeep and setting up a hide against it, but some pigeons do flare away, so thought that giving the Jeep a paint job might help to keep the birds on line. Might be a complete waste of money, but even if that is the case, I still think its looks  cool anyway?

Not insurance, but completed a V5C to DVLA for colour change

Dont want your insurance company blaming you for any crash .the lights will make u visable

You  do a camo paint job on your shooting vehicle and others call you a Redneck, but only cos they are jealous 😂

That Jeep actually spends very little time on the roads, only going between permissions, but a fair comment none the less, and point well taken 🙂

Hi Keith - yup that looks very familiar to me. Its surprising how many pigeons don't seem to see the vehicle, or at least take no notice of it, but you do get some flaring, and the paint job was partly to try and get better results from the day. We will see, but I still think its quite kool anyway 👍

All down to personal taste mate I guess, but yes, they would do any colours the customer prefers 👍

I've got my landcruiser done like that but more drab and brown, not as much khaki as yours, darkens it down looks well

I know it's not quite the same but if you are using your motor as a hide , as already suggested , couldn't you had put two or three camo nets over it ?

Yup 🙂

But like I said - this Jeep is ONLY used for shooting and nothing else . . . . . . . so why not?  I can  pop out for a quick hour or two with the minimal of effort and set up time.

DVLA yes!! Insurance company "advisable" as they will use any excuse to refuse a claim payout! I wonder if the DVLA have "camo" in their colour description list,

I would love to repaint my black Vitara the same, I tried a camo tarpaulin but it kept blowing away in the wind,so I just drive away from the hide and try to hide it behind bushes etc, 

The paint job looks great , if you are ever trying to escape from the law all you need to do is park up in someones garden, they will never find you. :good:

Have done the V5C for DVLA. Wasn't sure how to describe it and didn't particularly want to use the actual word "camouflage" so I entered it as "Green Grassland" !

Not done insurance yet - don't think it is a requirement as it is not a modification in a mechanical sense. This vehicle does less than 800 miles a year on normal roads, but more than happy to receive more advice on the subject. Certainly accept Lakeside's comment of it being "advisable" 👍

Haha - just re-read this, and at first I thought Mossy was asking if I had told the DIVA  😂
