Default Re: RCA AR88 Comms Receiver. Painting the case.

I think 'Wrinkle' or 'Ripple' finish is the best description for the paint type normally applied to military equipment. Also called 'Crinkle' by some.

A search for 'Crackle' finish will sometimes show a paint effect like a dried up mud pool.
This was used on some Hallicrafters SX-28 receivers.
