I know somebody is going to call me crazy for this, but would it at all be possible to use average acrylic paint, the type you buy at craft and art stores to be used on canvas to paint a fiberglass canopy?
Its more important for me to get my machine flying instead of buying a whole airbrushing set to paint it, and I have much more experience with brushes than airbrushes and spray paint.
Acrylic paint is basically plastic, and is a pretty tough plastic to destroy with average house hold cleaners, but I know for sure that nitro will destroy my paint job. Do you guys think I could spray some real hobby level fuel proof clear coat over the paint to protect and give it a glossy look?
I just tryed rubbing nitro on an unpreped peice of fiberglass resin, and it came off pretty easily, if I want this to work out, ill have to spray clear coat or something over it to chemical proof it.
