    I took this old beat up G1 Prime and gave him a fresh coat of flat black primer spray paint. The only prep work I did was minor cleaning after disassembly and I sandblasted the original paint off the die cast parts (chest, toes). Then I went over the "chrome" parts with a silver spray paint. I also sprayed the windshiled with some Tamiya(sp?) clear red spray paint. Some minor paint apps on the top of the cab and the feet and viola! Add some Evil Prime Repros and you have this:

    Agree with that as well.

    What brand of paint did you use for the black and red?

    Thanks!

    Thanks again!

    I don't recall exactly off the top of my head. I'll have to dig em out. I know the black was just a plain flat primer. The red was I believe Krylon Fusion spray paint I got from Auto Zone or something. The clear red for the windshield was Tamiya(?) transparent that I got from KO Toys of all places for my Kold Klear Classic Prime kit. That reminds me, I still have to build that thing...

    I had planned on trying to dye some white Ultra Magnus fists so there wouldn't be any paint to rub off, but I haven't gotten around to it yet :( 

    Thanks one more time!

    Great, that's what I wanted to hear. I read about Krylon Fusion in the Radicons tutorial and didn't know exactly what to expect. If I can achieve results anywhere close to this nice on my own project I'll be thrilled! Thanks.

    Word of warning -

    I'm not sure if this is Fusion's fault or mine for laying on the layers too thick and not allowing proper dry time, but this is an up close of the red on Roller:

    Looks nice and clean. Toy can paint the fists. Just tape of the pegs before you paint so you won't have rub issues.

    Thanks all!

    I still wanna try the black dye on G1 Ultra Magnus fists though, since I have some other stuff I wanna dye black also.
