Default Glow in the dark on metallic blue? Thoughts, suggestions or other ideas?

OK, so painting my first body while waiting on a new motor to replace the one I burnt. The body came with the used Rustler vxl I bought clear, with decals on the outside. Because I do some night runs under street lights, I thought I would play with glow in the dark paint. I also love the mettalic flake blue and wish I had bought my mettalic black SRT 1:1 in the blue color.
Attached is a picture of the body. Do you guys think my choice in paints would work?
Other ideas ( I just bought the paint and can return it if another idea sounds better)?

Parma fasglow would work nicely. However would need to be brushed on or airbrushed. Believe they have quite a few colors available. I've used LED's in the past. Helps other cars to see it as well as allowing you to see it's position.

I'm probably going to ditch the glow in the dark on this body. The mettalic blue looks sweet and I don't want the glow in the dark paint to affect its shine.
