Will Shoe Goo attack Faskolor?
What can be used to back up the Faskolor?

I've used Shoe Goo on Lexan bodies that I painted with Faskolor airbrush with good results. I wouldn't sweat it.

I always wait a day after painting to make sure it cured.

Ooh, good point! Yeah, I didn't mention that, but I wait 'til it's very dry before applying.

Shoe-Goo does not adhere very well to Fascolor. It will come off very easily.

I've never seen this? And I always pre-Goo cars in all of the known problem areas.

I will say that I put Shoe Goo on a(well cured) Faskolor white that was used to back a newly painted body and the Shoe Goo and the paint combined to form a yellowish tint. Still didn't eat through the paint or anything.

Questions??

So the new question is - What can I back the Faskolor with that won't attack the Faskolor so the Shoo Goo adheres to the backing paint... ?

Any of the spray RC paints work as a backer. I use Pactra White as my last color and Shoe-Goo sticks just fine.

Hate to contradictory, but I've painted many bodies with Faskolor and used shoo goo on many as well. In my experience, it sticks great. Goop (Autozone) works great too.

Are you sure you were using Parma Faskolor? Any chance you had some contamination like traction compound, or oils?

The painter said he used Faskolor =
There was a bare spot that he missed/flaked off =
I emailed him to find out what he used so I could patch it...
He said Faskolor...

Whatever clear he used to "back" the Faskolor with comes off with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol... =

That doesn't sound like a lacquer or lexan paint to me...

I just don't want to mess it up when I lay the armor down...

When I switched to Faskolor paints I read that you must back it with a backer paint. The purpose made ones seemed expensive so I tried Krylon Crystal Clear acrylic. This stuff works awesome as a backer and seals the paint very well. I have no cracking or peeling issues, and Goop/Shoe Goo adheres well.
