    I see alot of people here with custom paint. Whats the best way to go about a custom paint job? What kind of paint and prep work?

    You will need to use a polycarbonate type paint by Pactra, Tamiya etc. Clean the inside with soap and water to remove any oils and dry with lint free cloth or towel or blow dry with an air gun/nozzle.

    Most bodys have window mask and you will need to apply thoes first if you want clear windows.

    If useing multible colors, mask the different areas and mark on the outside with numbers so you know which colors to paint and in which order. You should paint/use darker colors first then apply the lighter colors.

    Hope this helps to get you started.... the more you do this stuff the easier it will get and the more creative you will become...Enjoy!!!
