    Anything but lexan paint WILL flake off.... no matter what you do for prep work.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    sure, a blue lexan color mixed with a red lexan = purple lexan

    also use the blue painters tape you can get from lowes, home depot, our your local hardware. not sure what my brother used but it wasn't any of the ones i listed because he tried to used some other kinda funky tape and it ran threw and ruined his shell he was trying to paint. so he's gonna drop another $16 on another shell and finally do it right.

    Or make a cast of the body and spray some liner and make some disposable bodies lol. At 5 bucks a can should be cheap for a body huh
