Yes, but also remember to prep the body very well before spraying! Use a wet/dry sand paper or light stell wool and work it real well into the body(exept the windows...but if you are gonna paint the windos go ahead and work em).Than use dish soap and warm water to clean the body, make sure its completely dry and oil free before spraying.
