Hi,

The Core manual states that metallic paints will interfere with transponder reading. So, I suppose I should stay away from Pactra Metallic Blue, for example? Does anyone know if Pactra Pearl or Fluorescent paints will also interfere?

Thanks,

Dan

i have never had trouble with metallic paint but then again i've never successfuly used pactra.

chrome plated bodies do not work with core.

metallic paint should cause any issue. There is just not enough metal in a concentrated area to mess up the Core's signal. However, anything that is plated (i.e. chrome plated) will interfer with the Core.
