Default Painting a Lexan Body

Hi, im new to the feild of R/C racing and I have a clear lexan body. I want to paint it but I dont know how or what kind of paint to use. I dont want to airbrush because the body I have is really small. Please tell me what kind of paint to use and where I can get it.

get a polycarbonate (or lexan) spray paint. im using tamiya spray paints (the one labeled PS.) i think parma or pactra have lexan spray paints. i suggest getting orion interior graphics - even with a single color paint job, your bodyshell will look like it has airbrushed designs. dont spray a heavy coat at once, several light coats (just to make the body opaque) is enough. make sure to remove the overspray film (if the body has one) before putting the detailing decals.

You can stick to the rattle can, but I use an airbrush because you can paint better graphics and stuff with it. Also, Faskolor paints are the way to go.
