Love the OD green! Very utilitarian, I would black out all the lights except the headlights with a light coat of flat niteshade, the open those headlights and paint the housings that OD green, then maybe even some military style bumper numbers.

it comes out flat. just spray 12-18 inches from it and do light coats. that's basically exactly how i did mine and they turned out flat, which was the opposite of what i wanted.
