    Just wondering if anybody can customize a BT Prowl into a silver one? I don't care much about robot mode b/c I plan on keeping it car mode. Can anybody help?

    thanks

    Get yourself some tape and some silver spray paint. Tape over open areas and parts you don't want to paint over and apply thin layers until the blue no longer shows. Presto, Silver Prowl.

    well if its a BT then it should be pretty easy, since its painting metal, but for Alts you'd want a paint that would bond to plastic well

    so i can just use generic silver spray paint? I don't need any sealant or anything else? sorry for sounding so noOb, but this will be my first custom & I'm just trying to do it right.

    thanks

    well you can seal it with a gloss afterwards if you want to help prevent chipping and whatnot, its a matter of how much you'll handle it afterwards, its not 100% necessary though

    Yeah, It'll probably just sit on my shelf a majority of the time & the only time I'll touch it is for car shows or something....thanks for your help...

    Ebay:
    1. Read through (or at least GLANCE through) the "exhaustive kitbasher's resource" thread stickied at the top of this forum.
    2. Krylon FUsion is the best way to go.
    3. See #1.
