I love that paint scheme.it looks pretty close to how my typhon look. who makes that body. I'm a chevy guy so I need the silverado

It takes a while,but you could bead blast the paint off the inside and start over....PITA though!
I used rc nitro gas and a green scrubby pad. it was a pita but it didn't leave a hazey clear

Thanks man! It's the first one i've done, I thought it came out pretty good. It's a Proline body, they have 4 different Chevy body's to choose from so you should be all set. All I had to do was trim a little extra around the wheel wells for the 1/8 buggy tires to fit.

The stock "paint" isn't paint at all. It's silk screened on and then baked in with heat. It's near impossible to get it off and still have a usable body. Your best bet is to buy a new clear body from Arrma, they can be found on Amazon and elsewhere. Then you can paint it however you would like and it will actually look good.
