    Question Pro-Graphix body

    I was thinking about gettin a new body for my truck as this one is kinda rough already. I have no clue how to do custom painting and don't really have time or patience to learn (I'm old). Anyway I saw the Pro-Graphix body from Traxxas and see you only add the base layer and it's done. I am just wondering what percentage of the total color the added color shows thru. For instance I want red as an accent color, would I finish this body with red? Or do I need to get a body with red on it already and Finish with black? If anyone knows or has a pic of one they have done from Pro-Graphix let me know. Thanks

    You need to properly prep the body for paint (wash it) and then paint it with the color or colors of your choice. I'd also recommend using a backing coat of paint.

    I've painted a couple of ProGraphix bodies (i.e. a Bandit body and a Nitro Stampede body), and I have been very happy with them. I painted the Bandit body one color, but I did a two color fade on the N-Stampede body. These bodies are an easy way to get a great looking body without much time, cost, or effort.
