Default faskolor help

here is the stupid question of the day...If you back up your truck/car body with fascoat,clear, will it make it fuel proof? Or do I need to paint a spray color from pactra? Thanks for the help.

I have never backed my Faskolor with anything but what it needs ( yellow with white, ect. ). I also spray a final coat of either white or silver on the inside, just to give it a clean look, but past that, i do not use pactra or fascoat, and have never had fuel related problems.

Also, be careful. If you use Pactra in large amounts on top of Faskolor, its been known to east through.

Also, Check out the "Your Custom Paintjobs" thread in the electric forum.

Back the faskolor with Pactra (silver, white, black whatever) if you plan on washing your car with water. Some of the colors will soften when water sits on the body, making them easy to rub off when you dry.
This is the answer I got from Parma when I asked about my paint softening up.

Pactra will not eat through the faskolor. Troy who told you that?

Just make sure you let the faskolor dry completely before you back with Pactra.

Want the same/or more colors at 1/3 less the cost but twice as big a bottle? Get Createx AutoAir paints. Exactly the same thing as faskolor. (I suspect they make the faskolor paints for Parma)
Find it at your local art store.

Thank you for the info on this subject, I don't worry too much on my electric sedans but was worried about it with my gas truck. Also, is ther something else you have to add to the createx paints fo lexan bodies? Thanks again.

A good buddy of mine, who has taught me everything. .

I don't remember exactly what he said, but it was to the effect that some colors will eat through faskolor. Im not sure if thats from not letting it fully cure ( faskolor takes a couple days to be at it's best ).

Createx has bond all and catalyst that you can add but I haven't used them and they stick fine. Just get all the oil off the body beforehand like you would anyway.

The AutoAir version is for non-porous surfaces and people use them for skis, skateboards, snowboards also, so it'll flex without flaking off.
Createx also make a version for fabrics, but I've never used it. If you find CharlieB here or the HPI paint forums/threads, I think he has used this version of the Createx paints and you can ask him more Qs. He's a very good painter. I'm sure TSR6 knows who I'm talking about.

The only Pactra that I'm aware of that will eat through anything is that spray smoke tint they sell. Nasty stuff.

I'm going to try and find some of that paint. I been in this sport for 15 years ad never had to worry about water based r/c paints needing fuel proofed. I just sprayed the inside of my truck body with some pactra paint. Thnaks again for the help.

Createx is generally a bit cheaper than the Faskolor, and it has some different colors. You can find it at most art stores. As said before... use autoair, not the other stuff.

The window tint is nasty stuff. It's probably leftover military chemicals from vietnam. I would never touch that stuff again. I ruined a good body about 3 years ago with that stuff. ...nasty nasty stuff.

You spray it on, and it bloches, no matter how clean you get the windows.. then you spray a little more to get rid of the bloches and it runs. Then it stinks worse than most paints if used... It's just aweful.

Default Createx

You don't need the auto air createx.The regular paint works fine.Been using it for years with no problems.Doesn't have to be backed for nitro either.Just make sure you wash the body well(I use dishsoap),and DO NOT use heat to cure it.Just use a fan.Hot air will dry the paint too much and cause flaking.I'm pretty sure it is the same stuff as Faskolor too.Have fun,Mario
