    first paint job proline raptor body

    The pics are pre sticker and post.

    I used a gun metal, metallic blue, and black. I also sprayed the inside with a bit of truck bed coating hoping it will help it hold up.

    My two main complaints about this body (and they are minor) is the front fenders had to be trimmed more than i would have liked to clear the tires from rubbing. Second, the rear body posts are so close to the rear "roll cage" that it makes it difficult to keep the body pins in.

    Let me know what you think about my first attempt.

    i like it. might want to trim the back fenders to clear the wheels a little bit more.

    Thanks. there's no clearance issue with the back fenders. It just looks that way due to the angle of the photo.

    I painted this over the course of a few days, and spent time thinking out how i was going to mask it all off.

    I had a good time with it, and have ideas for my next body. I also dumped about three cans worth of paint on it. lol. it's on there thick.
