    I found this picture some time ago, and cant find the site again. The name on the pic is TEDDs78.
    Might be Tedd. He might have been a member here.
    Any ideas?

    It is Cruiser Solutions, that looks an awfull lot like a New Hampshire plate on that rig and the owner of Cruiser Solutions name is Ted. If you're after factory Toyota paint codes check out Cool cruisers of texas or maybe JToutfitters.

    As mentioned above, I believe that is the Crusiersloutions rig I saw on their webpage. I recently sent them an email asking them the paintcode myself as i am painting my rig soon. They responded to my email and told me to call them directly via the phone. I opted to go with Nordic Blue as my paint instead, but they should be able to help you out if you give them a call.

    That is definitely NOT Olive Green (Color #653), but I really like the color. ::)
    This is Olive Green.

    Looking at it again on my screen here at work and I would now have to agree with Ed, it is not olive green (653). I guess I'll have to adjust my screen at home...

    I beleive the paint code 653 is actually called olive brown. At least according to CCOT and the local shop that matched my paint. So in that case it could be olive green if there is an olive green. Don't know about you, but my cruiser and the fisrt image Vortec_cruiser posted look awefully brown.

    Color codes here:http://store.yahoo.com/coolfj40/colorcodes.html

    don't see that green color though, might be made up by the owner.

    Try asking cruiser solutions. last time I was on their site they had some new gear advertised on that rig. They could probably tell you. Looks sweet.

    If you look at the page 2 of color codes (no color swatches), you will see #653 as olive green.

    Also, Toyota paint codes for Land Cruisers fall into these ranges: 400 series contains browns, 600 series contains greens, and 800 series contains blues. ::)

    Thanks for all the help.
    Found another Cruiser Solutions cruiser.
    This one is blue. Trying to find color name,code for this one too.
    My idea is to go to my local hobby store and get some bottles of enamel modeling paint and find one that looks close and see if I can get it matched. Probably to a Dupont centari.

    If not an exact match, it's still a good looking color, too. I wonder what vehicles were painted that color - certainly not Land Cruisers in 1970. ???
