Default Can I use this paint

Hello I have a quick question about what paint to use on a RC truck body. I have a bunch of cheap brand acrylic paints (Apple Barrel, Anita’s and FolkArt) that I thin down with windex and use to airbrush foam air planes. Can I use this on Lexan RC bodys? And will it hold up to the abuse of a short course truck?

Thanks

They probably will be fine until you wreck and then they will start flaking and peeling off.

I use those paints and have painted a few hundred bodies, no complaints. Just make sure you used parma's faskote sealer as your sealer/ backer

get yourself a cheap body and paint with those colours then abuse it some, see if it sticks. at least it will be a cheap body so no worries. and you will also know how well they stick !!
