    I've got the Roddy/Cyclonus 2-Pack due in any day now. I want to paint the matrix green and donate him to my Thunderwing, but I've no idea what kinda paint to use that would preserve the chrome or metal or whatever finish the thing's made out of.

    If anybody has suggestions, I would love to hear them.

    No clue what the thing looks like, but if it's chromed then you just have to put a clear color over it to change the color and keep the chrome.

    Not sure what the metal is underneath, but it's a bright gold chrome. So doing what these guys mentioned, you should be able to use a clear green over it to allow the chrome to shine through some.

    I've actually painted my RTS Matrix in anime colors. Some translucent green paint should do the trick.
