Anyone put Campclad on their vehicle? Let's see the pics! Is there someone in So. Cal. that applies these affordably? What pattern would you select for typical So. Cal hunting? MO Brush? Digi Military? Other?

I can't get to there patterns, but I like the ShadowGrass pattern. It's more for deserty areas.

That would help to cover the paint that peeled from my wonderful FORD paint job.

Haha! SJ, you referring to an '80's/90's model? My 2003 is holding up well on the paint, but my earlier '80's paint peeled like a 5-day old sunburn!

Hey fellas. In Auburn I know a shop that can do a mossy oak break up type camo. They quoted me between 500 and 700 dollars for my Jeep Wrangler. The price varied depending on if I wanted the roof done too. Not sure if thats a decent price or not. But if any body want I can get you a # and pass it on to you. -Jeremy

I looked into it and the quote was more than a thousand bucks. I love the Camo Clad but my old hunt rig will still be gettin' the rattle can treatment.

I'm sold on Camoclad. I covered one of my hunting rigs with it. Also a rifle, a shotgun, and a bunch of other calling gear. Mine's been on a few years. Rain, snow, sun, wind, gasoline, no damage at all, the stuff is terrific. Don't have pics to show (researching to buy a digital camera right now). Here's the link http://www.camoclad.com/As far as someone to put it on affordably, it's very labor intensive to do a clean job! I liked doing it and my stuff looks great. (I know, No pics!) I'd do it for hire but it couldn't be inexpensive.A cool feature of Camoclad is say on a rifle, you can peel it back years later, tighten screws or whatever, and lay the material back down and it's as good as new. No sticky film at all. Camocald is a perfect solution, expecially for firearms. No dipping, no painting, lasts forever and you can change your mind and remove it. I've always been suprised that it's not more popular, especially with all the hunting forums.

Yeah, not cheap but it will preserve the paint from "hillbilly pinstriping" as you drive thru bushes offroad. Am hearing that www.camowraps.com provides a better material...opinions on this material?

"hillbilly pinstriping" as you drive thru bushes offroad.

Is that what that's called?? I thought it was character for your rig. ;) My Jeep RARELY gets cleaned (maybe twice a year). It is what it is, transportation and a pretty good hunting rig. I really like the camoclad look though. But, I think if I ever came to doing that, I would probably buy a few cases of Krylon Fusion Camo. Hey ShooterJohn, when ya gonna break out your cases and paint that thing??

So if you were offer your detail oriented services to precision cut/apply camoclad to this Jeep (from the cladding up including windows) what would your club member fee be? ;)

Check out www.camo-da-dogg.comGive Eddie or Cheryl a call at 623-451-4378They are in the Phoenix area and I know that they will also do the installation. It might just be a good excuse to escape to AZ to call some coyotes.
