Ok, here's what he said.

Hammer, I used a red from the Wal-Mart automotive department.  It does have a fine metallic fleck to it, but it is much richer than standard paints; it does cost a bit more though.  Same with the gun metal gray, also from automotive.  Both the paints look great sprayed over a silver undercoat, using toothpaste to create a chipped paint affect.

I was not happy with the gloss on the gray, since as a sniper I need to keep a low IR profile.  To remedy this I took 400 grit sandpaper and gently took off the shine; it looks much better now.

I am experimenting with several mediums (black shoe polish repair, various paints, and stencil paint) to create a similar look that you got with the burned motor oil.  So far the stencil paint creates ther best simulated carbon buildup affect, but i have yet to determine how it will stick to the paint.  I will post when I figure this one out.

There are some very nice customs in this thread. Here's a bit of one I did about three years ago. I got as far as the helmet, chest armor, and shoulder/collars before I burned out and sold it. I still regret it.

Here are some pics of a white one I just completed...











It just needs a couple of decals installed, then it will be done.

This was my previous set up...
