The best window tint that you can get is to actually use automotive film. Dont get it dirty on the sticky side and try to keep the bubbles out. Next up is the Tamiya smoke, but you should just stick to the automotive film. Stay away from the Pactra. Their other stuff is really good, but I dont know what they were thinking with that spray window tint. Thats as bad of an idea as those sprays for bald spots. Looks like you painted your head.

I do know that there has been some recent progress made on that. So maybe another month or so we will know more. Dont ask me how I know that. I am not a representative of HPI.

What is the best way to install the rear bumper on my HPI Mustang? I pre-painted everything last time but when I glued it on, some of the glue ruined the paint on the body.

Just use the double sided tape that comes with the car it works great .I tend to use extra foam tape to hold it on and never have had a problem

If you airbrush, clean the windows off with rubbing alcohol after you pull the tape off and then just use regular Pactra black thinned out 50/50 with thinner and mist it in from a distance of like 5 to 6 inches quick passes

HPI is really missing out by not releasing a couple more bodies legal for VTA races. They'd sell like hot cakes right now.
