I'm new to all this. I bought a Trex 500 GF electric kit. I would like to know if I can paint the frames. I have some special BLACK epoxy paint. It is not affected by acetone, alcohol, gas or any other items along that line. Draw back is that it does need to be baked at 150 degree F for 1 hour.

Is this bad??????????

Thanks

Why dont you just get the g10 black frames from helidirect there only $30....Paint might not look good if it starts to peel off...

I don't think I'd paint it especially if you have to heat it up might mess with the integrity of the frame... Did you get the paint from Brownell's...

No it's actually Seagrave Paint. It's a single part epoxy paint.

There like g10 material and actually look better than the glassfiber in my opinion. Very strong material and a great price...
