    Hey Gang!


    Just placed an order for the PP01U from IGear as I missed out on the original release. I figure he's cheaper & I can just repaint 'im to Optimus' colors. So here's my question:

    Is there a paint in particular that you guys have used that has better adherence properties than most? I've used many types of paints over the years (enamels, laquers, acrylics, acrylic-enamels) but I'm looking for something that will have minimal rub-wear after curing. Most notably the majority of the red areas, not so much the blue areas. Also, preferably something that wont need a white priming base (since the mold is already cast in white) due to clearance issues.

    Thanks so much my fellow bashers, you guys are the best!
