    internal stickers

    what are those sticker decals that go inside the body and are painted over? how do they work? do they come off easily? i am getting a new offroad body, and wanted blue decals with white aerosol paint. any suggestions? what kind of paint looks best? like gloss or metallic or a special combo? im new to painting bodies, so any info would be great!

    you'll need to get Lexan paint .... whatever colors you choose .... I suggest using the flourescent backup paint after you have got your paint done like you want .... protects your new paint job & keeps the fuel from eatting/dissolving the paint .... A Must IMO

    When i did mine in white, i used some pearl white first, followed by some ordinary white, so from one angle it looks silver from another it looks white.
