    Tamiya PS-55 Polycarb Flat Clear - Anyone Have Any?

    Hey Everyone,
    re">
    R
    umor has it the PS-55 Flat Clear gives a light Matte Finish to your RC Body.. It's worth a try for me... Only problem, No one seems to have any in Stock... I was just thinking that a seasoned/veteran painter probably has a can of this on their shelf... Anyone have some they may be interested in selling to a Newbie?

    Thanks,

    I look forward to reading responses,

    T9Dragon I read a post on here that says it has a mild chemical reaction with the body that reduces the gloss...

    I do realize you paint the body on the bottom.... This spray goes on the top of the body...

    Just seeing if anyone has any they are willing to sell...


    Thanks,

    I used this flat clear on a body I did a few months back. I wanted a flat black car. I painted the inside black as you would normally. I then removed the outside film and masked the windows from the outside. I then sprayed light coats of the flat clear to the outside of the shell.
