Not very easy to paint the coro! the only one that of the guy of our club use and who resists rather well, painting PU with 2 components.

The Gloss Rust-oleum brand spray paints have been found to resist glow fuel when properly applied (sand with scotchbrite, clean, apply thin coats, thoroughly dry). The Clear Rust-oleum has not worked and Krylon brand has not worked good.

I know there is a paint that's made specifically for coro, but I don't know what it's called. Maybe call up a sign shop that prints on coro and see if they'll sell you some.

There are at least two brands of spray paint that can be found in home improvement stores (Lowes or Home Depot) that stick to coro.. I had good results with both brands. l don't remember the names of both of the brands, but one is Krylon Fusion (http://www.krylon.com/products/fusion_for_plastic/ ) I'm not sure what glow fuel will do to it, but for my electrics it has held up pretty well.

Glow fuel kills the krylon.

Here are two planes painted with Krylon Fusion,,,A 25CC weed wacker gas USS and the Mini Me version in .15 Glo I had forgotten about when I wrote my previous response. Both planes are about year and half old.... The red on the wings and tail are Krylon Fusion, they are holding up well, however the .15 Glo Mini Me version hasn't had any or very little raw Glo fuel spilled on the wings since it is kind of a high wing plane. I know that gasoline if left on the paint does start to run or bleed. So Frosty is probably correct if raw glo fuel is left on the paint it could be bad news, I just never tested it.
