first cut the body out. Use exacto knife and scribe it around the edges. Then you should be able to break the scribed edge. Don,t try to cut through the body w/ the knife. You will hurt yourself eventually. Next mask off all the windows. Most bodies come w/ them. If you are doing a single color(which I recommend for the first couple) you are ready paint. Grab the body by the roof and hold it inside up now put a light coat of paint on the inside of the body. Let it dry. Repeat until you have 4-5 coats After you are finished an its dry, remove the window masks and outside protective film. Done!
