I had painted the first body for my earthquake 3.0 and now the body is destroyed from rollovers.
The paint had some major problems. First, it mottled a TON even though I used the correct products and enough flash time between coats (I'm a professional auto body repair/painter) and flaked off the body really bad.
Do you paint the inside of the shell?
Do you use a plastic adhesion promotor first?
Sand/scuff the body first?
I never was really good at painting plastics other than automotive ABS stuff.
I was hopeing to use the HPI grave robber shell but it's only 1/10 scale, lame.
Also, I can't find a cheap mazda R7 FC3S body anywhere, just a yokomo 190mm one for $60. I plan on getting a lightning and putting an FC body on it, since i'm too broke for a real FC at the moment.
