Anything that sticks to the inside will work.

Pactra, but man is that stuff $$$, $6 for a 3oz. can? I have had some good luck with the Rustoleum stuff, the Enamels.

I just used some of the new Rustoleum Cover Up paint, it says it goes on twice as much or covers in half the time, something like that. I got it just to try on the SRP test body and it held up extremely well. Did not chip off. Just be careful when applying it. It does come out kinda strong so a light coat for the first coat is just a little tricky.

Be sure to clean and scuff the body well and the Rustoleum should stick just fine.

just buy a new body that will solve your screw up lol:wave:
Who said anything about a screw up, I don't screw up my paint jobs... I need to change colors on a already painted body and can't afford a new body...

there is a paint addhesive called bulldog or xxx paint addhesive comes in an aerosol can you can buy it at any automotive paint store. it has a flexing agent in it to help keep it from chipping off. i paint all my bodies on the outside a light mist at or above 70 degrees and you can use any kind of paint you desire from $8.00 a can to .99 cent can of paint. if sprayed on the inside use it in very light coats as it will turn the plastic a cloudy color.:thumbsup:

I use Testors model car paint . Thats what I use on my sprints . I did paint a truck body with it one time . Ask Sadler , he raced it a couple of years . It worked great . Works good on ABS or LEXAN .

glad i could be of help. i race on dirt and don't have any problems with it chipping off the scratches on my car are from me using a plastic scraper to get the dirt off after it dries. i also use the cheapest clear in an aerosol that i can find and it works good. one thing to remember is that if it is already painted don't spray the bulldog on it it will eat the paint. 55.jpg
