Default Wrap or Paint ??

Already sunk some money into a lift and tires on this ol 92. Want to do a camo wrap but I am not a DIY so local shop said wrap runs about $350.

Or do I just paint it myself with a rattlecan or a brush. Something simple like green or black?

Why not rattle can camo? It's pretty easy to do and touch up.

google how to spray your own camo paint
some methods work well, some look like a 3 yr old did them
i'd say you can do your own camo for about one quarter of the vinyl wrap
and touch up would be easy

Do a CAMO DIP!!!! Wish I had done that instead of wrap! Homemade rattle can is a good inexpensive way to go if you know you will be rough on it.

I bought a few cheap stencils from hobby lobby and drew a few on some can drink boxes and cut out with a razor knife. After the camo job I coated with helmsman spar varnish as a little durability factor. Not a pro job but it's on a Deercamp special. IMG_1386.JPG

Well....IMHO, if you want to keep the cost down (AKA cheap) then do what I did to this el-chepo Stevens rifle. I used Rustoleum paint. Now, in all fairness, my wife's an art teacher and she has an eye for this "stuff." But she helped me out a lot and told me to do the base color dark, and then go with the lighter colors as I sprayed over leaves, branches, and ferns that I picked around the house. I let the coat dry to almost perfect dry...as Rustoleum takes time to dry....but it's very "hearty" paint. As you can see I did the stock, barrel and scope. The paint holds up well to some tough usage and touch up is a breeze. Now, I did the barrel and scope separate from the stock. That's why the two colors are a bit different. But I will tell you the fox and raccoon don't seem to mind a bit.

BTW, I used 3 different colors on this. A dark green, a light green, and a tan. FWIW

I used a cheap gravity gun and premixed auto paint. I think it was 100 all in on my cArt. On my kids carts rattle cans. They look good for us but I can appreciate what guys do on here with their carts and really good paint jobs.
