Default Painted bodies

After A LOT of searching on google, all I can find is 1/8 'Buggy' bodies that are painted. Where do you racers get your bodies painted?

People do often send it to people that do awesome paint jobs, but usually people (including me) just paint them themselves. It depends if you want something professional looking, like if you have sponsors or want a particular scheme, or just something that looks good in general.

The last body I did (for 1/10 onroad) I tried out different layers and colours, as well as having a carbon fiber look, and it turned out much better than I thought Id be able to do it! All it takes is time and patience - and Im using a cheap as dirt airbrush from fleabay, something like $20 for the gun and paint holders.
