Default Paint Types

I'm wanting to paint a clear RC body. What type of paint do I use. I have never painted my own body before. I see they have polycarbonate and some lacquer?

If you are painting the inside of a body then you will not be needing lacquer.
Have a good browse in this forum...plenty of info. [8D]

You want to use the paints specifically made for lexan bodies which is the polycarbonate paints, you can use other paints but they will eventually flake off or crack and peel when you wreck.
