Default What Faskolor or Createx Auto Air paint would match this body?

I want to paint my SC8-e body to match the Pro Comp racing body. Which Blue Auto air or Faskolor paint do you think would match best?

Seeing how Team Associated sponsors that vehicle, maybe contact them in regards to the vehicle. If you tell them what you're doing, they may be happy to oblige.

Looks like standard FASBlue backed with white to me.

Well its not that important that the color is exactly the same. I have 3 or 4 different blue's but of course I am out of the standard Fasblue to do this body. I had a really nice looking Irridescent blue that was just a tad darker but they recently changed the color of it and now it looks more purple. Looks like I will have to take a ride today and see if I can find and Fasblue.

I wonder if I can use flouescent blue backed with black to darken it up some?

createx opaque blue... i have it in hand and looks like a match....... back it with the silver your doing the rest of the body with should be good...

don't think the flourescent blue would be a good choice. too bright even backing it with black. test it out first if you can to see what it looks like.

cut up a clear 2-liter bottle and spray down your blues and then spray the back with white in one area, silver in another and white in another and see what matches.

I do this in strips and write the color name on the front and keep em for reference
