I tried a wrap then paint. If the body is painted properly it seems to hold its bond longer than a wrap, as when I had a wrap I was always CA gluing the edges of the wraps to the body as they kept coming off.

I have done several up-grade wraps on my bodies and every other piece of equipment I can put it on, charger, radio, pit light, fuel gun etc. I love the wraps - they make painting a breeze one or two colors and im done. Up-grade is a great company.

Fastlane Graphix for Losi 8ight. It was a complete wrap, the only part you had to paint was the top section where the engine is.

I got my buggy used and that's what body came with it. Didn't really have a choice unless I bought a new body.

Sorry Crash, but you are totally clueless. We use convex MOTOCROSS material for all of our RC wraps.

We use 3M with control tac for full size vehicles, and oracal 3651 for race cars.

If there is anything else you would like to know maybe you should just ask instead of opening your stupid azz mouth to something you know nothing of. Keep taking your new employer in the direction you are, its great for my sales.

Back to making coffee and taking the mail for you...
