Anyhow, where Paragon dripped on the body it completely removed Testors Model Masters Paint.. In my shop I later tested on scrap lexan with House of Kolor paint and saw the problem. Yes, I shouldn't sauce the car that way.... But, I also want to protect the body from tire sauce.. So far the answer seems to be Pactra.. I bought several rattle cans and they work fine.. I bought a jar of Pactra paint to airbrush and I'll test that next.
that could be it I don't sauce the tires with the body still on and I let them dry for 20 min before I put the body back on to go race
