    Make sure you spray the underside of the body and not the exterior as well.

    I use Pectra. most common lexan paint you will see.

    Its also not a bad idea to add layer of black as a "wear" coat.

    Dont forget to remove the "overspray film" once you are done painting and ready to apply decals/stickers.

    I have been known to apply headlight/taillight decals and THEN realize I still have the overspray film on the body
