    It should. I ended up spray painting camo on a set of mine. I also threw on some polyurethane for weather protection.

    So where do you buy a can of camo spray paint with that pattern? ;)

    That was all YouTube. This was my first time ever doing a camo pattern. I had to look it up!

    I like the green. Smart move. I was more less intrigued to see if the camo would hide dirt and grime of everyday use. Yours are going to look good all mounted up!

    @510BG I was tempted to do a black coat of bedliner on them at one point for the ultimate durability coat. I never end up going through with it. I ended up cutting out some oak pieces and staining them for my small and large egg. I still think bedliner might look badarse. Similar to a matte black finish

    If I had the tools and knowledge I would have preferred to make wood replacements. I'll need to look into bedliner paint

    You can get it pretty much anywhere. Usually right beside the checkered paint.

    Respraying flat black tomorrow

    I have 2 comments on black.

    One, since childhood it is my favorite color.  It's a family joke which is a true story that when I was little, I wanted my bedroom painted dark dark black.  My parents said no, so I asked if I could have it light black.  LOL  The answer was still NO.

    Two, if it sits in the direct sun, black gets stinking hot.

    So while I like the look of black, there are things where I avoid having them be black.

    It's your egg, do what makes you happy.

    BTW, if you saw my off-road BGE post, notice, I painted the custom base black.

     and a BBQ Guru temp controller.

    Point well taken about the heat and direct sun. I'll report back on the that subject next summer
