i was wondering if any of you guys know the best way to camo a atv body, ive got 2 bodies for my 99 scrambler and decided i want one camo, i would just grab some spray paint but i want a realtree pattern not woodland. also ive seen the wraps but that would cost aroudn 300 bucks, im looking for a slightly cheaper way. thanks

i cant think of anyway to get real tree camo for very cheap. i think realtree is too detailed. you could use camo duct tape. though that would look ghetto.

camo netting-you drap it down when parked and pile it on top when driving. just ziptie it to different spots so it doesn't go anywhere and leave the sides loose so you can flip them up.

I think the easiest way might be to but some cheap real tree camo, glue it to your body and then clear coat it.

So you prefer cheap, over good?

If you aren't afraid to spend the money, look into Water Transfer Printing, or Dye Sublimation Printing. Google and be amazed at the possibilities.

i would like to do the water thing, i saw it on atv world. but ti way out of my price range, i really dont need it to be pretty, just anything better than bright red, lol. i dont like the red and would like to get it done before the snow comes and i start plowing with it.

do a flat green on it with plastic spray paint. then, work in a little tan followed by some brown spots. then finish it with a black. i've done several paint jobs like that and as long as you take your time and keep the spots big, they always come out good! also, don't get too close with the can. a run of wet paint can ruin the whole design!

Do a search on google, but if my memory serves me, there is a website called ATVArmor, or something like that...........not exactly sure. But they make kits for different ATV's in camo. It's just a stick on pattern, but it's already cut and what-not.

Wish I could remember the site......

RealTree is a copyrighted pattern. Anyone providing something commercially will have to pay a fee.
To do it cheaply will probably require you to be artistic and paint as if it were realtree.

Otherwise you will need something already in RealTree and do it yourself, e.g. cutting up camo material and attaching it or sticking it on.

I can't think of a cheap way to paint realtree. Maybe a giant sticker kit? That would look stupid though...
