The paint they use for soft plastics is the same as the rest of your car. Except they blend inn some "softner", so the paint can flex without cracking.

Re-painting the kit is no different from re-painting anything else. Just get some bodyshop to do it. They know what to do.

yep, just use a good Urethane primer and make sure to get all the oil off the kit before painting. the oil is used to allow the kit to pop free from the mold, but if you take it to a body shop, they'll do all this for you. thumbsup
