    hey guys, well, i am cruising along with the paintjob on my new BM lid, and finished up the back, and moving on to the left side for the earcap there and the killstripes... i have been studying Dookie's killstripe stencils, and have noticed in the "main" area of damage, between the 4th and 6th stripe from the front, there is a light greyish color that is different from the silver listed in the color scheme...but that grey color isnt listed...?? is it the same light grey used on the left earcap? is it part of the crack area? so what color are you guys using to paint in that detail? thanks fam...

    oh, and while i am at it, what color are you guys using for the light grey on the left earcap too... thanks!

    For the Left earcap I used RLM 76 Light Gray and will use the same for the killstripes.

    The light gray on the left ear is camoflage grey. testors.

    Didn't notice that grey in the kill strip area. May be part of the crack which I didn't do.

    I use Testors Camo Gray on the left ear also.
    The lighter gray within the silver damage is part of that crack repair.
