Painted in Dupli-Color engine enamels
including engine clear coat.
(claims to be fuel, heat, and chemical resistant, we'll see).
Grey Primer/Surfacer followed by all three colors, keep the nozzles clean to reduce the splatter and spotting as much as possible.
carefully overlapped each color to achieve blending effect.
Followed the color coat with 3 good wet coats of clear. Then I cured the paint in the oven (sorry honey) at 150 degrees for 2 hours, removed the canopy, and allowed it to cool.
Applied the Century decals (Stock Predator and P-Max decal sheet)
that I thought complimented the color scheme, carefully trimming all the extra sticker sheet away to within 1mm of the graphics.
Followed the stickers with 3 or 4 more wet coats of clear to seal the stickers down, once that was dry to the touch, I cured it in the oven again for another 1 hour.
I'm no paint expert, but the results were quite good, with a very nice gloss, and it seems to be very durable.
So far the Nitro and oil have had no effect on the clear or colors that I can tell.
