Just spent the last week painting, sanding, painting, sanding the RXS100 tank only for the paint to crack and then sod up when trying to repair...

Might be cheaper and easier to sent it ouut to paint, only want a basic red...

Take it to your nearest spray shop, if you are prepared to wait until they are doing a car the colour you want they will only charge you about 15, in a hurry, plain colour can't be more than 40..
