Can't or just don't want to bother? You can make a two color paint job that looks good with two color cans and fade between them. No masking at all.

The paper thin bodies are not the problem, the paint is just not designed to increase the body's rigidity. I don't think the paint should just be there only for looks. It should also be stiff enough when dry to stop all body tucks: soft paint should be discouraged and replaced with shoe goo thick drying paint(in crash prone areas) that also protects while making cars look good...All bodies would be allowed to race after being properly painted and racing would be alot more enjoyable.....

Would applying decals, a lot of decals, increase the weight? Maybe use decals from 1:1 cars, like STP, Jegs etc.

I would think structural paint would crack and fall off during a crash. Might as well use truck bed spray liner or that infomercial rubber spray.

I think Bert has been eating paint chips from his proposed type of paint!

I measured my rattle-can painted lightweight body and it weighs... 85g with not one sticker anywhere on it. A 90g body weight rule is no big deal.

Stop eating the paint chips.

Yes but my ULT 410 3 color paint and stickers that lasts me a month of club racing 4 days a week is only 67 grams. Now what?? And further more body tucks are not just a ult body issue.....

Think i know what my problem is .... this mon-tech racer is a superlight even though the body was labled as a normal lightweight on the clear paint protection film. It’s definitely not as ridgid as my other lightweight .... I used a whole can of paint and was still under weight.
