fuel proof paint?

Hi guys,

Could someone tell me where to find some fuel proof paint? I want to paint a 1/2 a foamy silver. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
Spencer

TopFlite LusterKote is fule proof. Comes in all the same colours that Monokote comes in. You could also try Coverrite 21st Century. I've used both. Both are high gloss and fuel proof. Both come as a sprey paint. Any R/C hobby store should have them.

The Testors spray paints are fuel proof and will work on foam, they're also cheaper if you only need about half what you get in a full size can.

Make sure you test whatever paint you choose on the foam "somewhere safe on the plane" before you try it on the outside. Many paints will dissolve foam.

Rustoleum is fuel proof. I have some on my SPAD that I've been flying for the past few months, and I haven't had any start to degrade or come off. It is available in several colors, and is probably cheaper than the hobby paint.
