Where is the best place to get the correct color and what is the name of it?

HI, Protec paints have current ADF camouflage green lustreless, they sell it in spray cans for the fiddly bits and 4lt, it's an enamel and easy to spray on. I know the Ballarat shop has it.

Although it is not the Olive drab from original service days but I don't think you can get that anymore, but it is a very good alternate and "real".

I've put up a photo of the spray cans, also in black and brown.

Lots...............

G'day,

When I was in RAEME in the late 60's / early 70's we painted all GS and A type vehicles in Lustreless Olive Drab. The paint at that time contained lead and was supplied by Wattyl.

This exact colour is still available from Wattyl in the newer lead-free paints.

This is the CORRECT colour for vehicles of this (SVN) era.

Colour Number:       20631
Description:             Lustreless Olive Drab ADE
Comments:              Standard used official Army master 7650/ADE (M) 146-1/3, 1969

Below is a photo of a Mk3 recently painted in this colour

If you have any difficulties contact Wattyl West Footscray Industrial Colour Studio on 03 9688 1136.
I have found them to be extremely helpful.

I just bought some spray can mentioned above from Protec in Adelaide. They didn't have any of the 4L tins in stock.

342-1166

I did a couple of test sprays on the 109 GS seemed to be a perfect match.

Does the Wattyl colour visibly differ or is it just its composition thats different?

The Wattyl colour is visibly different (appears more chalky).
I forgot to mention, it is only available in 20 lit. drums.
Last time I bought some, worked out at about $12 per litre.

Ended up getting the protec paint, i like the color and it matches the new gaurds i have.



I was going to go for the wattyl paint but it doesnt come in pressure packs and my truck had previously been painted in it and is really chalky.

One of the rims was un galvanized and had the original british green underneath. it had some stampings on it.

I thought given that the everyone a few people a gearing up to do a bit of painting it might be worth having this hands.

It is the MSDS for the protec paint.

I was particularly interested in what australian standards clothing and respirators must meet.

Well done for looking for the MSDS and posting it cobber!

Check out section 11 anyone who thinks it isn't worth looking at, and decide whether your brain and central nervous system is worth looking after!

Always work safely,
