Default Traxxas Slash Custom........

Traxxas Slash custom paint, So how do these guys do it? You see on e-bay all the time these amazing painted stickerless bodies. So they have perfect decals and perfect lettering, so how do they do it? do they have special logos they stick on the inside and then peel of and paint? So no one can make a perfect decal of Fox racing, Mobil, toyo, and all these companies so were can i get the stuff that they are using or maby they are just painting them and i just don't know the way they are doing it, does anyone know?

Default Vinyl

most of them use vinyl masks I have a vinyl plotter/cutter and made all the mask to paint mine all you do is lay the stickers down and paint base color then peel you next layer and then paint that and so on.
