here's a picture of my brother's yokomo 180SX body that I painted for him.
I used spray cans. I'll insert links so you know exactly what I used. Let it dry between coats
First I did 4 light coats of [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCY25&P=M]candy red[/link]
Then 2 medium coats of [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCY20&P=ML]Indy Silver[/link]
Then I removed the window masking and sprayed [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCY13&P=M]Outlaw Black[/link] to "tint" the windows.

I hope this was a help! Good luck.

Cool, my brother will be happy to hear that someone recognized his car in the mag. I'll let him know
