    Paint question.

    I'm going to be racing my 2wd slash for the first time this weekend and I'm going with a brand new, freshly painted body. My question is, once the body is painted (using proline airbrush paint for polycarbonate) can I back it with regular spray paint or should I just keep layering thin layers of the airbrush paint?

    Regular spray paint is not flexible enough.

    Just back it with a heavier coat of silver, black, white or whatever color enhances the topcoat best.

    He said that he shaved the wiper hole and squirter on the trunk of his car, the shop told him it was 250 ($$??) but since that price was on a brand new trunk with no paint and it was charged to insurance (probably an insurance claim).

    "His" other posts are a bit off and it may either be a language barrier (using a translator) or spammer...

    I have not used the Proline paints as of yet, however, stick with paints for polycarb bodies as they have a flex agent.
    Just be cautious when mixing brands together.
