    Looking for 1/10 blazer body to fit my axial deadbolt. Preferably $50 or less, possibly $60. Does not need pre drilled holes. Hoping for pre painted or tips on paint as well. Thanks

    For type of paint: if lexan body, then make sure its for polycarbonate.

    How to paint: first brain storm on what things you want what colors. Windows clear? Tape them off. Want window "moldings" to be black, tape them off as well:

    I did a lot of research on YouTube for painting tutorials. Hemistorm had a good one on the layers.
    I then made a list on a piece of paper, I know old school, on what I wanted to paint, in what order and what color. Also the unmasking process was brainstormed, and written down.

    Then lay down your first coat of paint, most likely the body color, then remove masks that you want the same color as your backing. I went with a gun metal gray backing, then black. I wanted the blue to darken up just a tad.
    Final product on my first RC/paint job after really researching it and taking my time in planning:
