    I've talked about turning SKyhammer into Vortex and was worried about the parts rubbing together.So,i started on Swindle first to get an idea of the paint turnout(before i ruin Skyhammer)and the parts that rub are crazy on Swindle.I'm using Kryon White primer and yellow(the made for plastic cans)and its thick,would a clear coat make it worse or reduse it? Skyhammer is a very indepth transformer and his parts would rub really bad,any tips on getting around this?

    You can do some minor sanding on the high rub areas. I normally don't bother since rub is inevitable (unless you dye or leave it factory).

    I will be dying some parts of Swindle black and that will help.Its hard to use any other color for dying but black.If only there was a way to get the plastic white.

    Not at the moment.there isn't anything to take a pic of right now,i'm still just testing the colors.Once i have an idea of what i'm going for,i'll have better pics then.What about Clear coat? would that help?

    I'm not sure. I kind of have to see the bad rub spots and also see how well the paint adhered to the plastic.
