- Spray the body with several coats of primer by using an airbrush, spray can or paint brush. For an even coverage use a broad spray Aztek airbrush!
TIP: Primer prepares the surface for the additional paint coats you will apply. Primers typically bond aggressively with the plastic. Additionally, primer is designed to bond well to the paint, reducing any tendency to peel or lift off (especially) when removing masking tape.
- Allow base coat to dry and apply masking tape for detail work and as many color coats as you wish.
TIP: Color coats are built up in layers, starting with light mist coats and eventually ending with wet coats. Be sure to abide by cure times on color coats!

NOTE: A glossy clear coat provides the best surface for the application of decals. If the color coats are flat (matt), and clear gloss coat is applied before the decals.
- Apply a top coat.
