If the Krylon Fusion paint is NOT an RC paint then it will absolutely not work. It will melt the lexan and you'll end up with a totally ruined body.

Isn't there a Painting forum for these kind of questions? I don't see how this is Nitro Off-Road related...

Very true, But I will answer the question anyway.

I have never painted a RC body with the krylon, however I do use it to back my bodies. It is flexible like RC paint so it won't crack off. For painting the body itself, grab some real rc paint.

Just a quick FYI- I've used the Fusion paint, it does not melt the lexan. It's not as durable as lexan paint but works just fine.
