    Hey Radicons, im about to start my first repaint and had a question about repainting factory paint jobs like HA bumblebee and skids. Both of these have custom factory jobs like the black hood lines on BB and the side graphics on skids. if I'm going to repaint the entire body, how do i go about adding back these custom graphics? BB may not be too difficult but the graphics on the side of Skids seems a bit hard to reproduce. if i mask them, wont there be valleys left once the rest of the body has been painted?


    thanks in advance!

    I would think that the graphics on the side of Skids would be pretty easy to repaint by hand. It's just a pattern of black paint blotches. AFAIK FR and Sabby have done this on their custom Skids.
