Hi,

I've seen some people already painting the lexan bodies.

How can I remove the paint from the Lazer lexan body? Will it then look all scratched?

I guee those lexan bodies are paint from the inside, but the decals are then placed on the outside?

As you see.. I need some help..

Many thanks!

You might be able to crack the paint if you flex the body a bit.

The paint is coming off of my Lazer wing in gigantic flakes just from crashing on it many times.

try soaking it in simple green. that should remove the paint. it may take a day or so to soften it up enough to wipe off. but its worth a shot

There is something weird about the lexan. I noticed even with a new unpainted body. When painting it the paint cant easily be scratched off. It is Faskolor and I did pre sand the inside. None of the other bodies I have worked on were this easy to remove the paint.

Carrapateira, you paint from the inside. You put stickers on the outside.

I'm using Tamiya paint on my 1:10 scale buggy (lexan body), I never had this kind of issues...
I was just astonished by the poor Kyosho quality :(
