1974 M151A2 COMPLETED
30 JUNE 1997
Sandblasted and primed with epoxy primer for CARC
This vehicle had the original coat of O.D. and one coat of four color camo that
was in excellent condition. I decided to take advantage of this by prepping the
original paint then sealing it all in Epoxy-polymide. Normally the four color camo
has been brushed on and must be removed or sanded quite a bit before
recoating.

Epoxy-polymide is an excellent primer intended for use with a CARC top-coating.
It seals, protects and is impact resistant unlike regular primers. It goes on
smooth and thick and does not need additional recoats. After rust is removed it
will prevent its return by sealing the repaired area.
This vehicle was undercoated, replaced all bearings, driveshafts and transmission
seals. Now it is ready for the first color of CARC...383 Green. (Forest Green)
WOW! there is nothing like watching that new green paint going on! Had to stop
and take a picture. This is when you realize it was all worth the time and effort.
After the 383 green was applied the next color was black. The patterns were
done in accordance with TB 43-0209 31 Oct 1990. Then the 383 brown patterns
were applied. Off with the tape, what a beautiful sight!
