    Default Createx paint usage on clear lexan RC bodies and chrome tips please

    I'm about to buy a proper airbrush and some Createx paints for general art work and painting lexan RC car bodies, a mix of Auto-air, Wicked, Illustration colours and AutoBorne Sealer. I've seen many people mention that they use Createx paints on lexan, but I wanted to make sure that these four types are ok, and would I need an adhesion promoter, I believe the 4030 Intercoat clear helps a little with adhesion, is that right?

    Also, mirror effect on lexan, chrome style paint with a backing of black would be best to achieve this right? Any other tips.

    Thanks.

    The Autoborne sealers stick to plastic like kryptonite. They have a clear Autoborne sealer that you can use as your first layer on the Lexan. No need to use adhesion promoter with the Autoborne sealers. You can use Auto Air or Wicked on top of the sealer.
