Default Painting Question/Krylon Fusion Paint

I have the beetle body that I just finished painting. The color scheem looks like crap. I'm thinking of painting the outter part of the shell now because it would be too much work to try to remove the paint from the inside. Has anyone tried the Krylon Fusion paint for plastic on the out side of there body? This is what I'm thinking of doing and just wanted to know if anyone has been successful in doing this. Any pic's would be nice. Thanks.

I think you should stick to what you got, or remove the paint. If you paint on the outter side of the body, the first crash (or just jump and land on top) will result in a missing spot of paint - this will quickly be pretty ugly to look at.

It is possible to remove the paint - just be carefull, the lexan body is not proof against certain chemicals.

MJT... I've heard of people using PB Blaster to remove the paint but I don't have any idea were to get this stuff. Any ideas?
