Hey guys,

Do you know anyone in the T.O. area that'll paint track plastics?

If so, how much do they charge? Uppers, lowers, front fender, and tail.

I don't need a spectacular job done, but I don't really wanna spray can it (based on what I've read), so I'm going for a low cost job.

On a side note, is spray canning it a bad idea?

Thanks for the input guys!

spray paint.

trackbodywork get trashed anyways, why waste $300-400 painting it?

spend $30 on spray paint and spend the rest on tracktime, or gas for travel. :thumbup

I read somewhere that the paint come off if you get gasoline on it. Is this true?

Can you give a small on the steps needed to paint it?

Thanks!

They'll take care of the shipping for you. But the job will be a proper job and may not be what you want to spend. But they will be done right, thats for sure. Call 613 831 3397 during regular business hours and ask for Warren, only talk to Warren

The secret is to use the "automotive" version of tremclad.
It's $2 bucks more than the regular stuff.
CTire in the automotive paint section.
Take your time and be patient.
Primer in thick coats. Sand smooth. 400 looks best.
Paint in thin multiple coats.
For best results, paint in direct sunlight
or in a hot room. The heat cures the paint.
