Re: camo dash kits

Well, let's be fair...

'Camo' is every bit as 'valid' a motif as, say, flames or whatever... Not my cup o' tea, but still 'valid' if that's what you want.

A variety of vendors offer camo seat covers, and at least one manufacturer offers a camo dash mat. I *think* I've seen camo-styled floormats as well. If you're enough into camo to add those accessories, it doesn't seem like that much of a stretch to add it to your dash as well....

Then ya just gotta camo up the outside ot the truck too!

I'm very into camo, but it just does not work on a lowered S Runner.
Been trying to figure out a "highway" camo with gray and dark gray horizontal stripes etc to blend in on the road. Maybe something like the low visibility US aircraft camo with horizontal blended stripes.

If I had a beater 4 wheeler it would be camo, probably German WWII late war ambush scheme. It would be a fun project to completely camo a truck

That's more or less why I prefer to get medium-to-dark gray vehicles.

What about something with irregular stripes or blocks running in multiple directions (like old warship camouflage)? Those irregular patterns were supposed to make it difficult (at a distance) to readily ascertain the direction and speed of the vessel....

Here is my big chance to use the "Exactly" smilie, but they are no longer available as a message reply option. :-(

Anyway, yes, warship camo with some mods would be one way to do it.
I would want the pattern to be less "wild" that some of the warship patterns becuse those crazy patterns would attract attention.

Would want to soften the demarcation lines because the trucks are viewed at a much closer distance that ships are. Would also want to add some green or medium tan to some of the upper/higher surfaces to blend in with the predominate roadside scenery. Use some black/charcoal to change the shape of the wheel wells to a more indeterminate shape and to break up the outline of the front and rear side views.

Would be fun...

Re: camo dash kits

Not much you could do with the wheels, though.... No matter how irregular the pattern applied, it would blur together into a whole as they rotate. Probably the best one could do would be to visually neutralize them with a dull color...
