Default OEM BMW Paint on Lexan

I'm assuming all my poly paints stick for a reason, but has anyone ever used OEM automotive paint on the inside of a Lexan body with any success?

I can buy the paint in a spray can from a vendor I use for the real parts

Thanks for any input

Only way you can use it would be to scuff body and put flex agent into it.if not it will just flake right off.

Duratrax is prob gonna be only one with a blue metallic.not sure if lrp does or not.if you were going to airbrush you could mix it with duratrax, lrp, spaz stix.

you can spray it without scuffing or adhesion promoter, just spray it and lay down a coat of sealer. I actually have some ppg white that was left over from a bmw m3.

Wow ---- thanks for the tip ---- I may just go with Tamiya PS-59 (Dark Blue Metallic) - have some of that on the way BUT would love to try this out with sealer ----- what type/brand sealer? I use dull and gloss coat spray for my static models, so, same thing here or is there a specific, flexible, sealer I need?

Thanks again

See of tamiya makes a clear coat or use black or white, but using those might change the tone of color.
